Student Reviews




Wilmette, IL

When I met Maya I had a solid foundation in piano studies and wanted to focus on improving my sound and exploring much more repertoire. Although I had very good piano teachers/coaches as a child and through college, no one had been able to truly help me express what was deep inside me until Maya worked with me. With Maya I am inspired to practice and she has shown me new ways to maximize the time I have to practice. I feel extremely fortunate to be working with Maya - and to know her.




Park Ridge, IL

I took lessons (and didn't get all that far) as a child and started up again about 25 years later. I've been taking lessons off and on since and have been a student of Maya for the past few years. She is an excellent teacher as anyone who has attended her piano parties and observed her students gain in musical and technical expertise will attest. She has also helped me deal with ridiculously severe performance anxiety. So - adults out there thinking of starting or restarting piano lessons, give Maya a call! And don't forget to include the gift of piano lessons for your children!




Skokie, IL

I have been an adult student of Maya's for several years. Maya is so musical, it's amazing what she can bring out of me!




Evanston, IL

Words cannot fully describe the gifts of this extraordinarily talented teacher. After being professionally trained in one the best music schools in the country, I turned to piano studies as an adult. She is by far the best teacher I have ever had in anything. Her musical acumen, creativity in teaching and dedication and generosity to her students is unparalleled. She finds a way to enable every student, young and old, to find and express their best musical selves.
