Speaking in terms of English grammar: when writing, how does one abbreviate the formal title "Maestro"?

While I'm eager to know if there is a correct manner in which to abbreviate the above term, it also occurs to me at this time that it may be a matter of referencing the original language, or context, in which the term is used. If such is the case, then a more specific question may follow: How does one abbreviate the formal title "Maestro de Armes"?

Further, does the abbreviation change appreciably when the title is changed somewhat: Mâitre d'Armes?

I've also heard that spelling of the title of Maestro changes when referring to a female instructor (Maestra) - does that then have any bearing on the abbreviation? To follow, does (and how does) the feminine indicator change when the title is longer (possible examples: Maestra de Armes / Maestro de Armas), and what kind (if any) of bearing would this have on the abbreviation?

Many thanks in advance, and I look forward to your response.
The original language is Italian. It may have an abbreviated form in that language, but I can find no official abbreviation in English. In English, it is not a formal title, but a term conferred upon an expert in the field. Online references do not abbreviate Maestro/a, nor does the single online reference to Maestro d'Armes Jeannette Acosta-Martinez. Maestra as a female of the kind is rare and defined as 'dated' in one source.

Hi, in italian we have some abbreviated forms for Maestro in music field. Most frequently used are:



Mo.

M.o

followed by the Maestro full name or surname - M° Luciano Pavarotti, Mo. Pavarotti.

As you said, Maestra is really rare - and sounds quite strange to most of italian people.

Maestro and Maestra are used in Spanish also, as gender-specific terms for a male or female teacher or professor.
