Marisela Smith

founder and director

Marisela Smith, our studio's founder and director, began playing piano when she was 6 years old under the tutelage of Professor Sidonia Stern. Mrs. Stern was a renowned german instructor who focused heavily on theory and agility, nurturing Marisela's raw talent for music from an early age. She then attended the National Music Conservatory in Caracas, Venezuela where she was classically trained and learned performance, composition, theory, and music history.

Mrs. Smith first began teaching piano in 1982 after moving to the United States to study at the University of Pennsylvania. Her passion was to teach young students, which allowed her to develop the versatile and enjoyable teaching methods used at Brambleton Piano Studio. In her own words "It seems to me that music is a great gift, that it enriches lives, and that it should always be fun!"

Products & Services


Private lessons are given on a weekly basis and last for 30, 45, 60 or 75 minutes.

We believe in a well-rounded approach that trains students in the artistic performance and theoretical understanding of music. Lessons are geared towards improving their proficiency and natural talent as we incorporate elements of music theory, history, and composition. This offers a well-rounded foundation that will serve our students in whatever musical path they choose to follow.

Customer Testimonials

I started taking piano lessons with Marisela since it first opened. I was actually one of her first students! Eventually, in high school I stopped playing piano and proceeded to take voice lessons at Opus Conservatory. I love the environment and everyone is so kind. I would definitely recommend this studio to anyone who is looking for music training.

Fantastic school. I can not say enough good things about the teachers, the theory, and approach to learning to love music. I have a 5 year old and this school is setting the foundation of musicality for a lifetime.
