“Maya’s presentation on music and mindfulness was captivating.  Her ability to make her audience feel comfortable with experiential exercises is unparalleled.  I had many audience members come up to me after the evening had concluded to thank me for inviting Maya to speak.  Even I left feeling not just informed, but elevated.”

Lucas Goodwin

Director of Admissions & Outreach, Fusion Academy - Manhattan

“I had the pleasure of hiring Maya for a series of “Music Wellness” workshops for our employees here at Amscan.  Everyone who participated thoroughly enjoyed Maya’s classes.  She teaches in a friendly and compassionate way, allowing people (who may have no musical experience at all) to feel comfortable and at ease with instruments they’ve never even seen before.  Her exercises were informative, useful and fun.  I highly recommend Maya for her expertise and ability to connect with her students.”

“Maya’s presentation for the Autism Center’s Grandparent Support Group was both enlightening and entertaining! The degree of participation speaks to her ability to draw in even the most reticent. She is a very skilled practitioner & her services greatly benefit recipients of all ages.”

Lee Englander

WJCS Family Autism Center Coordinator

“I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with Maya Benattar on a number of projects bringing information to the public. We’ve addressed social-emotional learning and development, the benefits of music, and the nature and benefits of music therapy. Maya is a true professional and a wealth of information. She communicates effectively in a warm and accessible way with an audience.”

“Using music-making to relax was fun and effective. The exercises Maya taught us were simple enough for me to remember and do on my own. I really recommend it!”
