A Bachelor of Music graduate from the University of Santo Tomas (UST), Philippines, Miss Mary Ann started teaching as early as 1993 and has never stopped, deriving great pleasure in instilling the love of music in the young and old alike. Winner of various piano competitions inside and outside UST, and having performed in different venues within the capital and abroad, she takes joy in teaching others the value of hard work and the discipline required for music making.

Teacher Mary Ann's approach in motivating her pupils is to record their performances so that they themselves hear their musical development. She hopes that by witnessing their growth first hand, the students and their families take pride in the endeavor. Hence, "Tickle dem Keys!"  aptly represents Miss Mary Ann's goal for her students: to be able to play with minimal effort and with great exuberance.

With TdK’s policy of tracking a student’s progress through video, you get to watch your child’s musical growth. You get to witness your child working hard to learn, laughing hard at mistakes and jumping hard at successes. It is progress you can see with your own eyes and hear with your own ears. It is a front seat to your child's piano adventure.

So if you don't mind a little eccentricity in your piano teacher, who would cackle at your mistakes instead of going Incredible Hulk about it, feel free to contact Teacher Mary Ann.  She offers a free trial lesson so you can check out if her approach is suited for you.

Below are some piano pieces she recorded in hopes of inspiring her students to persevere.
