    Mary ya a great fit with my daughter We are very pleased

  • Jean Selby

    Friendly, asked what I wanted to work on, or my goals. She came up with a plan, and said she was flexible if my needs or goals change. I've had 3 lessons so far, and have enjoyed and played my ukulele more in 3 weeks than the entire 6 months prior to my lessons!

    Mary contacted me right away. We discussed the particulars of what I was interested in learning, and I asked for her input. She is down to earth, a professional with a sense of humor, and I already had my first lesson and loved it!


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

start students playing music immediately. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Studied at Saddleback colllege in Mission Viejo, CA  

iAlso a member of music teachers of California for whom I was certified with. I also studied music for young children from Canada 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I have competitive prices. And I raise them a small amount once a year.

How did you get started teaching?

30 years ago I started with a senior citizen who recommended a family of three to me who were homeschooled.  It took off from there. I moved back to OH and  started teaching at a private Catholic school in their after school program.  From there I started teaching full-time in my own home studio. 

What types of students have you worked with?

Preschool through older adult and some special needs.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

i have two recitals a year and the Spring one is always  special because I love to give awards out to students for their special years in Piano such as three years, five years and exit. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Look for a teacher when you’re comfortable with. Make sure what you wanted music is what they can provide. Some teachers are all into competitions. If that is what you’re looking for that is good. Some teachers like myself are into music for life. That means that I want to teach a student how to be able to play piano in their life and enjoy the music that they would like to play.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

The student should think about how comfortable they are with the teacher with whom they will be spending a half an hour to an hour with each week
