Maria M.

Mountain Top, PA

About Maria

At a young age, I found my passion through listening to jazz and classical music and experiencing the personal connections they create. From performing to teaching, I like to share my passion for musi
c with those around me.

I have recently graduated with a B.M. in Music Education, Jazz Studies at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. Aside from performing in the academic setting, I also perform with my own groups, and have composed original compositions in the jazz, classical and pop idiom.

My teaching experience ranges from private lessons and jazz workshops to summer music camps and K-12 music classes. I love teaching and will probably never stop!

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe it is important to solidify the foundations of music, so that the student can grow into a knowledgeable, expressive musician. My lessons are taught with a personal and energetic approach leaving the student excited and eager to further explore music. I always make sure that the student is having fun!

Learning an instrument is all about personal growth as a musician. I will help my students become better musicians week by week as long as they are willing to practice and come prepared for the lesson.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I will provide a metronome, tuner, music stand and some music books/repertoire. Student may need to provide their own lesson books.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical techniques, improvisation, composition and songwriting.

Cancellation Policy:
Please notify me at least 24 hours in advance if you need to cancel or reschedule a lesson.

I can't say enough about how great Maria is! She was quickly able to assess my ability and create a unique lesson plan catering to my goals. Each lesson was informative, fun, and most importantly- helped immensely with my playing. I happily recommend Maria to anyone hoping to expand their musical horizons.

I've been taking saxophone lessons from Maria for almost two months now (I was a total beginner). Maria not only plays the Sax beautifully, she is also able to teach her skills to me in an extremely easy-to-follow fashion. Every lesson with her, not only my skills had improved, it was also such a pleasant experience. With her help, I went from being able to practice 15 mins/ day, to an hour everyday, which mostly due to her innovative teaching techniques to make practice not so boring. She is professional and talented. Every time I play a duet with her (I've been doing this since lesson 2, also Maria's idea) my interest for the Sax just got deeper. In short, she is a great teacher and a wonderful friend, and I am really really luck to have found her as my first Sax teacher.

Scranton, PA

About Jon

Hey There! Thanks for clicking on my profile. I've been playing Electric Bass since the young age of 10. Born into a family of musicians, I had no choice but to become a musician and now as an adul
t, I wouldn't have it any other way. Music is more than just playing an instrument, it's a lifestyle, therapy, career, among many other things. As an educator, I try to convey that thought to each and every one of my students. There's nothing better than getting to do what you love for a living.

A little more about me.... I play in a Progressive Jazz Fusion band called "Rogue Chimp" based out of Scranton, PA (www.RogueChimpMusic.com). As well, I'm a sideman for many other PA/NY/NJ artists. I was a staff musician and Musical Director for Carnival Cruise Lines for 5 years. Prior to that, I lived and performed in and around the Atlanta, GA music scene for around 2 years.

I hope to hear from you and share my musical insight and possibly learn something back!
