Many of Maria's Kindermusik students go on to take private studio lessons at the Cadek Conservatory of Music. The private studio instructors are delighted in the excellent musical preparation that Maria's students have. In a Loyalty Survey a parent of one of Maria's students stated, "We have an excellent teacher!"
