Maria has many years of experience teaching children and youth and having children of her own has given her an even greater understanding of how children develop and grow. Providing your child with the opportunity to learn and love music is one of the greatest gifts you can give them! Every effort will be made to ensure your child’s musical journey is fun, creative and rewarding.

Students are invited to participate in recitals every year. As a member of ORMTA (Ontario Registered Music Teacher Association) students will have an opportunity to do an audition to take part in an Awards Recital every spring. All students receive certificates, while younger students have an opportunity to win trophies and advanced students may be awarded scholarships.

Maria has extensive experience in preparing students for RCM (Royal Conservatory of Music) exams, concerts, recitals as well as competitions. This process of preparation is extensive, and encourages the student to develop their technical skills as well as their artistic presentation. At all times, emphasis is placed on developing a self-awareness and appreciation for the artistic process as a positive one. Every student entering an exam or competition should feel confident and at ease.

Recent student highlights include Britt-Lynn Winch winning the OMFA (Ontario Music festival Association) competition for Grade 6 pedal harp at the Provincial level in May 2017.
Britt-Lynn also won the Grade 6 level scholarship from the Toronto Harp Society in April 2017.

Our two children have been having piano lessons with Maria for the past three years now. We love having Maria teach the kids and they really connect with her. They have learned a lot and have really come to love to play piano. It’s so wonderful to hear them play!
