About Marcia


Marcia Liddon has been passionate about the fine arts since she was young. Her first exposure to it was dance lessons at three. She began piano lessons shortly after that, and  added guitar and voice lessons as a teenager. Her love of music expanded into college where she earned a Bachelors of Fine Arts from the University of Texas at Austin. She has since dedicated her life to sharing that love of music with others. She has been teaching music to students of all ages since 1989. Her goal is to encourage all her students to form a positive lifelong relationship with music. 


Marcia is an adaptable teacher who strives to accommodate the learning style of each student. She recognizes and honors the unique goals of the individual and thrives on collaborating with each student to create customized instruction. With a natural inclination toward and commitment to patience and kindness, she inspires students toward an enduring passion for music.
