MY HOPE FOR YOU
From an early age I have loved making music, and my best instructors have all demonstrated these four values.
Kindness: giving direct feedback in a manner honoring to the student. Appropriate Expectations: setting goals that match the student's potential. Personal Fulfillment: celebrating milestones and reframing setbacks. Serving Others: showing students that music is a gift to be shared, not a trophy to covet.
I want students to learn in the same encouraging and nourishing atmosphere that helped me flourish personally and musically.

"I have been studying piano with Maurice for 6 years. Lessons are always constructive and he caters towards my needs to grow as a pianist. I would recommend him to anyone!"
I find Maurice to be an excellent leader, a first-rate musician, and a compassionate and inspiring pastor. Obviously, his educational background speaks for itself and his abilities as both a pianist and conductor are formidable.
Maurice is that rare individual - talented, humble, and funny.
