My child 8 years old has been attending Ms. Maria's studio for almost 2 years. She really enjoys her class. Ms. Maria has effective teaching method for students that incorporate musicianship, theory, creativity and skill. Last year 2014 my child got many rewards for piano competition and theory test. I am very glad to have Ms. Maria teaching piano for my daughter. I think she is the best piano teacher ever!
I have two boys that started in January and have thrived with Ms. Maria. To our surprise our five year old proactively practices on his own at home because he truly enjoys what he's learning. We've seen both boys thrive with Ms. Maria. We are so blessed to have found someone so patient and passionate about teaching lessons. You won't find someone that cares about your child's musical development as much as Ms. Maria does. She truly cares about each child and it shows. We look forward to many more years in our musical journey!
We have tried two teachers before entering Ms. Maria studio without much progress. Since last here our daughter as been able to make great progress! We have actually recommended her studio to friends!! Ms. Maria is a great teacher!!!
Our son has been studying with Ms. Maria for one year. He has advanced more quickly than we expected under her direction. My husband and I have both studied music for years and we knew that we had selected the right teacher shortly after he began his studies. If your student follows her direction they will become a great piano player.
Maria Mclean is such an amazing piano instructor. She assigns music that she knows the child enjoys. My daughter loves the fact that she can earn trips to the treasure box for extra time practice during the week. Maria is firm but kind, and so her students respect her and also want to please her. She gives them praise only when she should!
We are very pleased with the instruction our child is receiving from Maria McLean and would highly recommend her. She has a positive, uplifting demeanor which children respond well to. Her teaching style is well-developed and she adjusts to the personality and learning style of her students. She incorporates both playing time and theory work into her lessons, which I believe is important for a well-rounded education. After just 12 months of instruction, our child is playing like most 24+ month students.
My daughter has been going to Maria Mclean since 2013 and we absolutely love her. She is very patient, kind and makes my child very comfortable. I'm glad we found a great piano teacher in our vicinity.
My son and daughter both just turned 7 and they have been with Ms. Maria for about 8 months. They love Ms. Maria so much! She is such a wonderful teacher. I am so glad we found her. We plan to stay with her as long as we can.
My studio provides consistent motivation by offering competitive performances, CD recordings, master classes, recitals, computer theory games, and gentle guidance, reinforced with lots of positive reinforcement.
With private piano lessons, your child will learn to master the techniques that define the makings of an accomplished musician. The Piano Journey Studio is the first step for all students who wish to become successful musical artists while having fun at the same time.
Let me teach your child to love music through piano appreciation and mastery. It is well known that students with a musical background fair better in school than those without. Students learn to memorize and to perform pieces with technical accuracy and musical expression. The only thing they have to do is show up (and practice at home)!
Get your kids out of the house and keep their minds stimulated during summer vacation. I provide a total of four weeks worth of classes for the summer and even give priority to summer students when registering for fall classes. If your child is already enrolled in school year piano classes, don’t risk them losing their hard-earned skills with no lessons during the summer.
Classes begin June 1 - June 16
Classes begin July 18 - July 28
First Friday of each month, beginning September
After enrolling in The Piano Journey Studio, one month’s tuition deposit is required in addition to the first month’s tuition.
