Marta Maroto is an Spanish pianist and teacher operating an independent piano studio in NW London. She started to study Classical Ballet at the age of 8 and three years later she started her piano studies. From that moment onwards she developed both paths with the same passion. It was in 2001 once she finished her Ballet Degree and after having her first experiences as a piano teacher, when she decided to focus in her piano career and study both degrees in Piano Performance and Piano Pedagogy.
During her degree studies’ years, she started her private teaching practice back in Madrid. Once she finished her studies, she also became a piano teacher and head of the piano department in the Valdemoro Music School (Madrid) and continued her professional development with postgraduate piano teaching seminars in Alcalá de Henares University.
It is in 2011 when she decides to move to London and settle here her teaching practice, benefiting her students from the knowledge and Spanish experience while getting further English qualifications. This is why she becomes a member of the European Piano Teachers’ Association (EPTA), and a graduate with distinction of its highly regarded Piano Teachers’ Course. The course is the UK’s leading professional development course solely for piano teachers.
