    Marie is a sweet passionate instructor. Kids love Marie. I highly recommend Marie to any family who is looking for a piano instructor for their child.

  • Ike Carlin

    Marie is very good at understanding the needs of her students. She has helped me complete the music courses required for a degree in music. She knows exactly what to do, and how to do it. She’s very professional. She never stops encouraging me. She is kind, and very inspirational.

    Marie Strassenberg is a perceptive and effective teacher. As a very busy working adult, I appreciate her flexibility with my difficult schedule. Marie has taken my playing a long way. When I started working with her I was very mechanical in my playing. She has helped me with adding dynamics and expression to my playing. We have had 14 lessons over the last two years, and she helped me learn my first Beethoven Sonata, and play it well.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

All new students (or parents of students under 16) will complete a phone interview with the instructor to evaluate student goals and any possible previous experience. After this, you will schedule a discounted introductory lesson! Following the lesson, you will have the opportunity to register for ongoing lessons and reserve a permanent time slot!
