What Students say:
"Maria is an amazing piano teacher and mentor for anyone seeking greater achievement and enjoyment in piano studies. She is highly experienced and very professional which you can see in her lessons and in the results she creates in her students. One of my favorite things about Maria is that she will push you to do your utmost best with every piece, paying attention not only to technical detail but also to the emotion and story that every piece should express. The best part is that she does this kindly and patiently. I would recommend Maria for anyone looking for a solid & enjoyable music education and for anyone willing to work hard for amazing results." - Poonam, Colindale, London
