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.

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 teach online or in-person piano lessons from my home studio on my beautiful Steinway baby grand piano.

A typical lesson with me will look something like this:

-The student plays what they have practiced, and we work on any difficult areas and techniques for playing better.

-I introduce new lesson material, asking questions to make sure my student understands.

-We work on music theory, sight reading, good posture, and helpful practice techniques.

-I expect my students to practice every day, just as I do. It is the only way to become proficient.

- - - - - - - - - -

For online lessons, you may use the online platform provided by TakeLessons, or we can use Zoom. Most of my students are using Zoom.

You will need to order lesson books before your first lesson. After you sign up, we will discuss which books to order. I usually use Alfred's Basic Piano Library lesson and theory books as a starting point for lessons.

You will also need to set up your computer, tablet, ...

Elisabeth has been teaching our 12 year old son piano for several years. She is very methodical in working through curriculum in her instruction, but also flexible to include other “fun” songs that he wanted to play to help keep him motivated. She is very patient and efficient during the lesson time. I may add that my husband is a classical pianist so we were looking for a high quality instructor. We also appreciate that she is flexible with changing lessons times on occasion when our schedule may change for a season. We’ve been very pleased with the progress our son has made under her teaching.

If your searching for an amazing teacher your search is over. Elisabeth has been wonderful violin teacher to my son! She makes corrections without being critical..that's huge!! We highly recommend her!!
Denise
Elisabeth is helping me realize a dream of learning to play both the cello and the violin in my not-so-youthful years. I deeply appreciate her patience and encouragement, her knowledgeable and confident guidance. Each lesson session is a joy because of Elisabeth's upbeat, positive outlook and her genuine desire to see and hear my playing abilities improve.

My first lesson was a real happy one, I was nervous and stressed about starting. Ms. Stephanie was very pleasant, explained things so I could comprehend it., she was strong in confidence yet happy in mild in teaching style. I’m very hopeful I will learn a lot from this brilliant teacher.
Shannon
I am an adult beginner violinist. When I first met Stephanie, I had barely touched a violin, but I was determined to learn how to play it. With her help and patience, I am progressing through the Suzuki method as well as doing ear training and music theory. Stephanie is an excellent musician as well as instructor! Her method of teaching keeps the students engaged, encouraged and excited about learning music from all sides of it.
Naomi G.
I strongly recommend Ms. Quinn. She is amazing. I love a teacher who is passionate about what she does and Ms. Quinn has motivated me to love the violin and work harder to improve. She is slightly strict but very patience and kind, always pushing you to work hard and do your best. I learned to play violin a few years ago as a beginner and stopped playing for a few years. I was nervous to begin online violin lessons considering that I learn better face to face. However, Ms. Quinn has done an amazing job at teaching me, I have been taking lessons with her for a year now and have learned so much I didn’t know before which has also grown my love for violin.

I use the Faber Piank adventure books and Suzuki books. I adjust to the student's needs and I have students try different styles of music and also help them with solos they want to learn and familiar music like Mario Brothers, movie music, and popular music. I teach through Suzuki Piano Book 6. They also learn classical music, rag time, jazz, and other styles. Music should be fun and that is my goal for their lessons and to share my joy of music with my students. Lessons combine various musical activities to keep the student stimulated and focused. Students also learn scales, note reading, rhythm and music theory.

I'm the gramma of Chloe (the student)who is 12 yrs old and taking Viola lessons from Jill over Zoom for home school. And I have to say as I was listening in the background I was thinking, Wow! It's as if they're old friends already! She has a very reassuring and friendly personality. And Chloe already learned something in that first lesson when Jill was trying to assess Chloe's abilities. I'm sure you'll immediately like her teaching abilities as much as we do.
Renee M.
Jill is just amazing! She breaks things down for me in session to help me develop my skills in a manner that helps the information just sick. She is always so patient and has such a great sense of humor.

My daughter has been learning from Jill to play violin for more than five years and she has improved dramatically over that time. She also takes piano lessons with Jill which has fed her musical curiosity. Jill is patient, positive, and an expert in her craft. Great teacher!!!
