Studio Policies

Maintain professional standards and establish student goals


Marie is very organized and aware of my daughter’s needs. She makes sure the students are happy with what they are playing, but does not compromise on Technique or Theory (not my daughter’s favorite). Marie adjusts music choices to fit student preference because she knows how important those things are, and somehow Marie makes it fun for her! She’s a wonderful teacher who really cares.

The Pianos

I provide three different pianos in my studio: a Kawai baby grand and two Yamaha Clavinova digital pianos. The first instrument encourages students to listen to the nuance and emotion that can be heard on a quality acoustic piano. All studio instruments encourage the development of proper technique. In addition to the baby grand, the two digital pianos help in daily lessons, and allow for fun engagement with the creative sounds and back tracks they provide. All instruments are properly maintained and tuned to ensure optimal function.


A wise man once said, “Writing about music is like dancing about architecture.” When I try to explain my philosophy, I often find myself thinking about the intangible way music makes people feel. As a piano teacher, this is what’s important to me—that my students experience music, and enjoy it. I believe that music should be fun. If nothing else, I want my students to enjoy playing the piano.


Marie is an amazing teacher! I have studied with 4 previous professional teachers, so I can make good comparisons. I love Marie because she genuinely cares about her students, really! She never lets any of her students leave their lessons confused. Marie is also very skilled at motivating her students. She doesn’t just teach to teach, she teaches so her students really enjoy learning.
