Martha truly loves working with children because teaching is her passion.  Martha enjoys giving to the community by holding music recitals for senior citizens. She has obtained Kodaly, ORFF, and Suzuki training and enjoys integrating these methods during her lessons.  

While residing in El Paso, Ms. Marquez studied and performed under Maestro Abraham Chavez (former conductor for the El Paso Symphony). In addition, Martha intensely studied classical guitar from a local classical guitar legend,  Charles Teitsworth. 

Martha moved to San Antonio over ten years ago where she began teaching music for the United States Air Force. She has used her spare time to play for the Community Bible Church Orchestra, the University of Incarnate Word Community Orchestra, and Salterelli Orchestra. She currently plays for the South Texas Symphonic Orchestra. Her most favorite thing to do is listen to birds sing. It is music to her ears!
