My teaching method is based on the classical methodical rules, but I am teaching other musical styles as well, such as folk, basic jazz or improvisation (for advanced students). I believe that music is a wonderful language, we just need the right tools and knowledge to be able to read it, my role is to provide them so you can learn, enjoy and improve your skills.
My name is Maria Lukova and I am a professional Violinist. My second instrument is Piano. I have done my music education in Bulgaria and after that I went to Belgium to complete my Master 's degree. Teaching since 2008 I have a good experience working with children and adults . I am familiar with ABRSM Grade system.
Maria has been tutoring my daughter violin as a beginner for 2 years now. We are about to compose Grade 3 and are truly delighted to have her as our tutor. She has a lively infectious attitude which easily rubs off on our daughter and makes lessons a good mixture of seriousness and fun. She is very knowledgeable and experienced, from the correct violin size for our daughter and how to take care our instrument to the technical and dynamic requirements of playing. For as long as Maria is able to, we see no reason to stop or change lessons at all. We are extremely happy with Maria and would definitely recommend her to violin players of all abilities.
We met through music, I know Maria for six years now.
When I started to have Piano lessons with her I felt really confident since the beginning even though my skills were quite poor at the time.
Maria's professionalism, positive energy and patience made me better , I have improved a lot with her.
I highly recommend Maria, if you want to learn and improve your skills with real musical passion.
After buying a piano and teaching myself the major scales, I felt it was time to have someone teach me one-to-one to help me move forward. I am so glad I found Maria. She asked me what my aims were and worked with me to help me achieve them. She taught me in my own home on my own piano. She was always punctual and considerate. Her enthusiasm for music ,her deep knowledge and extensive experience all made her a great teacher. I whole-heartedly recommend her.
Maria has been teaching my kids violin and piano for a few years now. She is brilliant with kids and has helped my kids get through grades. I would highly recommend Maria as a music teacher. She is patient and trustworthy.
I strongly recommend Maria as a violin tutor. I am an adult learner and started with her from the zero level. She is very patient and encouraging. She took me step by step and I definitely going to continue with her till I master playing violin. Thanks a lot Maria.
I know Maria. Although I am a jazz guitarist, I have played Czardas and Hungarian Dance No 5 with her and have no hesitation in recommending her.
Maria is an attentive and professional teacher who is open to the new and she is very kind person for communication.
I am so happy to be her student.
Maria is a truly dedicated and passionate teacher. I started taking violin classes with her 2 years ago on a weekly basis. Being a grown-up learning the violin is obviously a challenge, but her dedication and patience makes the whole process remarkably enjoyable.
She is always paying attention to my interests and constantly challenging me to bring pieces that I want to play. Her patience can only be match with her skills and didactic way of teaching.
I strongly recommend Maria for both adults and kids, she will be a constant reminder of why you want to learn the violin and what can you accomish if you are truly committed.
