Hi! My name is Maru Martinez, I’m a guitar and ukulele instructor. I’ve been playing guitar for 14 years and I received my BA in Film from DePaul University, with a focus on Sound and Music Composition for Film.
I love sharing my passion for music with beginning and experienced students alike and help them achieve their musical goals. As an instructor, I strive to create a welcoming and positive environment for music-learning, helping students build good practice habits from the start and set achievable goals. I tailor each lesson based on the student’s musical interests, their current skill-level and future goals with the instrument, while making sure they receive a well-balanced music education.
I welcome students of all ages and musical backgrounds, and I also offer lessons in Spanish.
