Get ready for a truly rich and rewarding experience. Maria studied at the Moscow Conservatory with Viktor Merzhanov. She is a 4th-generation pupil of Franz Liszt and 6th-generation of Beethoven. She was one of the fortunate few (Garrick Ohlsson among them) to study with Roberto Eyzaguirre, who was a student and friend of Claudio Arrau, one of the 20th-century's greatest pianists. Arrau studied with Martin Krause, who was one of Franz Liszt's final pupils. Liszt was taught by Carl Czerny. And Beethoven was Czerny's teacher. Through this great lineage, learn an incredible technique that will enable you to play the music of your dreams!

I am gaining a lot from my lessons with Maria. She is helping me to play more musically, to really listen and feel the music. She is also helping me to learn technically how to achieve the musical expression I desire.
Evan
I have enjoyed my lessons from Maria immensely. After just a few lessons I have noticed significant improvements in my overall technique and comfort while playing. Her feedback during lessons has been amazing, not just shallow compliments but solid criticism that most teachers would avoid.
Irwin ..
Maria is the best all-around music teacher I've ever head. She combines deep musicality, technical precision, rigor, and warmth. In just a handful of lessons, she's helped me find a level of ease and expression that I've never experienced with any other teacher.

I have been teaching clarinet and piano lessons since 2014. In my career, I have performed recitals at the State Conservatory of Uzbekistan as a clarinet and piano performer. As performer, I also played in chamber ensembles and wind orchestra as well as with different teams performing in weddings, private events, and restaurants. I accompanied wind instruments, such as flute, clarinet, oboe, and his piano students for studio recitals and festivals. I also accompanied choir during my study at the conservatory. While doing my Master's Degree at the University of Northern Iowa, I composed several pieces for piano and woodwind trio. I arranged pieces for piano, clarinet, chamber ensemble, and wind orchestra.

As a certified Holistic Nutrition and RTT practitioner coach I give my clients good accurate data that empowers them to make better choices about their health.

Let me share what some of my clients have said about my coaching:

"I lost 20 pounds with Zelda's coaching in 12 weeks. It is an empowering feeling to have such control over your own health and I didn't realize how good I would feel after eating foods right from the ground; things that are not processed; things that are grown, natural and pure. I noticed that I now never think of things like, rice, pasta, creamy/sweet foods, and diary. This is a lifetime of habits that I had to change, a lifetime of thoughts around food and what I liked that I had to change as well. I noticed that my ...

"It's official. Best instructor ever. Today was the end of my initial prepaid classes. I have already set up for another month. Jihye teaches at my pace. Is still very patient and reviews sections until I "get it". Sections that I get quickly, she moves on and then ties everything together.
She has a wonderful personality and literally makes learning the Korean language fun. She has me read, write, speak and laugh all while teaching. She always greets my family members if they happen walk by in the background.
I am making progress and look forward to my classes. Another plus is that she uses a textbook. So even though this is a holiday break, I can peek to future lessons and continue to practice.
A+++ to Jihye."

"I've had the opportunity to take several online French language classes over the years, as well as in-person tutoring. I'd easily rank Philippe among the best I've had, as he readily adjusted to my pace of learning and desired learning objectives, pushed me to improve but didn't force his own agenda, and maintained a great, positive, and motivating attitude throughout our experience. The next time I'm doing online classes I will unhesitatingly connect with him, and I'd happily recommend him to anyone else looking to learn French, whether to begin or to refine their existing French."
