Private Instruction

I love hearing students stop in the middle of a lesson and remark, "This used to be hard for me!" My goal for every student is that things that start out feeling impossible will some day become easy for them, and that they'll have fun and get to make music they enjoy along the way. I currently offer private instruction in the following areas:


  • Recorder

  • Flute

  • Saxophone

  • Bassoon

  • Trombone

  • Others pending consultation


  • Violin

  • Viola


​Voice pending consultation


Lessons are provided at my Waterford residence.

Zoom lessons may be available in some situations.

Recital opportunities are encouraged and arranged based on current studio membership.

"Three of my children have been taking piano lessons with Maria for three years and they have progressed nicely with just 30 minutes of lesson time each per week! Maria has a lot of patience with them when they take a long time to master something, and she has found a way to keep my most difficult child engaged and willing to stick it out. Her expertise as a composer helps my kids apply what they’re learning directly to their own compositions. I love that she takes their creative development seriously as she teaches them an instrument."
