Maria is a fantastic teacher full of energy and enthusiasm. She has given me great tips to enhance my practice and has supported me to overcome my insecurities. Lessons with her are fun and I always walk away inspired and keen to continue learning.

Maria has been an absolutely ideal first flute teacher for my nine year old daughter. She has always been very encouraging and made the lessons fun, without putting pressure in any way, but instead taking things at my daughter's own pace, and gently but persistently encouraging her. I think this attitude has made a huge difference and am very grateful that her interest in the flute has been nurtured in this way. I always hear lots of laughter as well as music during the lessons, and over the last year my daughter has gradually begun to practice more and more in between lessons, and even started to compose her own pieces, which Maria has encouraged. She is now proudly part of an ensemble at school, and regards her music as something fun and creative rather than something boring/another lesson. She reads music well too, as well as playing confidently. Maria has also always been scrupulously punctual and reliable, and adaptable when we have needed to rearrange lessons.

I have known Maria for 3 months during my time as her jazz student. I have been extremely happy with the progress she has helped me attain over such a short period of time. She has demonstrated an ability to present information quickly and efficiently, as well as deliver these results through her student in a disciplined manner. Her attention to detail and ability to listen and understand her student has helped me progress week by week. Maria displays great interest in the lesson, and never hesitates to answer any questions I present to her. Considering the short amount of time learning with her, I have been very impressed by the overall quality of service she has been able to deliver. She teaches with energy and zest for the entirety of the lesson, and fills me with the confidence and assurance necessary to advance briskly.
I love teaching and have been doing it for the past 4 years: private tuition for both children and adults, group improvisation lessons and music workshops on various topics (instrumental practise, playing in a band, composition, confidence on stage and more)!
My main goal as a teacher is for the pupil to enjoy music and to continue to grow through the playing of their instrument.
I teach in my home studio in central London (E1W).
Weather you want to play just for fun or you want to take it more seriously, I can adapt my approach to your needs. I can also help you prepare for a Grade Exam (if you wish to take one)!
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or if you’d like to book a lesson!
