After marrying Dr. Hani Marcos in 1999, the Marcos's moved to Maryland and have made their home in the Gaithersburg/Laytonsville area. Dr. Posey-Marcos has taught in Maryland for over 15 years. Her philosophy is that each person has the potential to be an artist and piano is one such medium that Dr. Posey-Marcos has found as a means of artistic expression that she feels compelled to share with others. Dr. Posey-Marcos knew that the piano was "her" chosen instrument, when at the age of three she saw and played her first piano. It was magic and has been ever since her first encounter. She loves working with children and seeing them develop into little artists with a passion for their instrument. Equally satisfying, is working with adults who have always wanted to play the piano.
