About Maritza

I love teaching children and adults to learn the language of music through an instrument and I love helping them become proficient at it. I strive for the best and will give you the necessary tools to learn something new every time you come to class. There is a lot learned through music that you can't see but you will notice how your child becomes more focused in school. All I ask from students and parents is the commitment to practice.

I specialize in violin, viola, cello and piano. Not only will the student learn to play an instrument but they will also learn to read music. I focus a lot in position in the beginning, then we will focus in technique. Even though the class is a serious business I will make it fun for you the student to enjoy and want to learn more.

I have a Bachelors degree in Violin Performance with Musical Education Studies from the Conservatory of Music in Puerto Rico, where I graduated Summa Cum Laude. I have been part of different Orchestras and Ensembles like The Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra, the San Juan Pops Orchestra, the Arturo Somohano Orchestra, Padre Soler Chamber Orchestra. I have participated in many other productions, weddings and other engagements. I have been teaching children and adults for over 20 years. I have helped students prepare for auditions, recitals and they have been offered successful opportunities and scholarships.

I try to be flexible with time. While I have a 24 hr cancellation policy, I will offer make-up classes.


I also specialize in Music Theory, Rhythm, and General Music.

If you are interested in learning music and playing an instrument, please feel free to contact me.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you to achieve success.
