Dr. Maureen Spranza is a great piano teacher for my son. She's very hands-on, very patient and supportive. Been with her for about 4 years now.

Dr. Spranza is a very dedicated teacher. Both my daughters take weekly piano lessons from her. She prepared them for the certificate of merit exam and they both passed their respective levels. Dr. Spranza encourages her students and also holds them accountable for their assignments. I highly recommend Dr. Spranza as a music teacher. She is one of the best music teachers in the Bay Area.

Ms. Maureen is fabulous music teacher! She is extremely detailed, yet, simplifies the lessons so students are able to fully grasp the concepts. She works really well with kids, too. Highly recommend.
