Hi everyone!! My name is Keri Maldonado and I manage the awesome crew over at the Oakton store. I have been working with Music and Arts since 2010, and I am super excited to be in this location with this amazing team!
I started playing the trumpet while in grade school, and then quickly moved to the French horn, which I fell in love with and continue to play to this day. Music was a huge part of my life growing up--between my siblings and I we had almost a whole band in the house! Before Music&Arts, I studied for four years at Mansfield University majoring on the French Horn. While there, I participated in the Concert Wind Ensemble, Orchestra, MU Marching Band, and Woodwind Quintet.
The main reason that I enjoy my job so much is because I get to interact with and experience the education of budding and growing musicians every day. We believe firmly in the value of private lessons, and our lesson program is by far my most favorite part of the store. I am proud to say we have a fun, family friendly, and safe environment where we host one of the largest lesson programs in Fairfax County. With over 600 students per week and counting, our store is one of the leaders in our combined nation-wide count of 30,000 children and adults learning to do what they love most with the help of our incredibly talented teachers.
Whether you're stopping by for music, a new instrument, or just to check us out, feel free to come to me with any questions, or to ask me more about our lesson program, I'm more than happy to help! We’ve got a great team of experts within the store and together we’re always here to answer any questions you may have. Please don’t hesitate to contact us!
