Singing in front of ANYONE is enough to make you want to vomit! ESPECIALLY, when it is your VERY FIRST TIME singing for a Vocal Coach. I didn’t throw up, I did do a lot of crying because I was SOOOO Nervous 😬 but I SANG! Marie, got me to sing 🎤 yay 😁 She is very gifted. In my opinion, one of her (many) 😉 greatest qualities is her energy. Additionally, she is so easy to talk too. Marie taught me that singing isn’t just picking up a mic 🎤 and away we go…it’s about us learning one another. She needs to learn as much as she can about me! This is what really allows her to custom curate each session. I don’t know what you’re doing…but I am scheduling my next session with Marie 👍🏼

I've loved working with Marie and I'm so glad I've found her! We started working together about 9 months ago and I can honestly say my voice has changed for the better! She is so knowledgable about everything voice and music related under the sun! She really takes the time to get to know her students and finds ways to keep pushing us to find our true voices in the most positive and encouraging ways possible! I really am thankful for our lessons and how open minded she is to letting the student take charge to choose what we'd like to sing and work on. Keep on going Marie!!

I wanted to share my experience working with Marie and her quality work. I checked her Thumbtack profile and contacted her since I saw she has amazing reviews and hands down turned out to be all true whatever people were saying about their great experiences. She always shows up, pretty flexible and has so much patience with kids since my kid is only 7 and he wasn’t listening to me but he started to play his first song today and I am so happy to know Marie and will definitely recommend her to anyone want to start learning music specially Piano and by the way, she has an amazing vocal and great control on it. Thank you again :)

I wanted to start playing piano for a long time and I didn’t really know where to start. After a deep online search and a quick conversation with Marie, I felt very comfortable, and we started. Now, after a few months in, I feel like I made the best decision. She is very patient and professional, and also very creative and talented. I highly recommend her!
