Get to know Maria Siesky

It started with a toy piano when I was 5. I loved playing songs I heard at school and church on my tiny keyboard, and when I went to my first piano lesson, I decided to make music my life!

I spent many happy years taking piano lessons and performing in recitals. In high school, I found opportunities to participate in adjudicated events, to accompany musicals, and to play on my worship team at church. But I wanted to play more! So I earned a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in keyboard pedagogy, where I discovered my love of teaching. I taught individual lessons as well as group piano classes. I met my husband there too, and we moved to Miami after graduation. Now I am doing what I love: teaching at Music and Arts and playing new music by composition students from the University of Miami!
