About Us

Maestoso Press was founded in 2013 by Terry Schipplein for the purpose of training church musicians.

After approximately 10 years of working with students both nationally and internationally, Terry saw a commonality between students that  helped those  students succeed in their musical abilities.   Maestoso Press, Inc. is a music store with the purpose of training and motivating your students.

Terry's desire is to train musicians. Would you like your student to play in your church orchestra?

Terry began working with her mother Naomi Martin, a piano teacher of over 40 years, when she was in High School,  Terry understands the power of music and the importance of teaching students to appreciate good music and establish strong music standards.  Terry has learned how to guide the student to the instrument that they will be the most successful and teach the student to love the music the instrument makes.  With proper guidance the student , at the end of High School, should be ready to play in your churches orchestra.
