Introduction: Hello, and Welcome! UPDATE: I’m Liza Marie. Thanks for stopping by to check out my profile. Due to my current roster of students, I have limited availability in my teaching schedule. I have updated what days/times I have available. If you don’t see the day or time that work for you, I’d be happy to add you to my studio waitlist in case I have an opening in the future. I am a professional vocalist and pianist from New York City, currently living in Nashville, teaching remotely. (It works, I promise. I am super smart and really good at my job.) I have a Bachelor of Music degree in Vocal Performance, with an additional secondary degree in Piano Performance, from The Baldwin-Wallace Conservatory of Music, and a Master of Arts degree from New York University in Music Education. I am a certified instructor by the New York State Board of Education. I specialize in vocal instruction for all ages, and piano instruction for beginner to intermediate level students. My training and experience with younger children in beginner piano instruction ensures a strong start to their music education. I also have over ten years of professional performing experience, both nationally and internationally. I currently sing with the Nashville Symphony Chorus and am a company member of the Nashville Opera. Most recently, I performed with Franklin Light Opera in La Cendrillon. This month I’ll be performing in the premiere of TEN YEAR Musical, and in November 2021, will be featured in All Together Now! and the Virtual Performers’ “Back on Broadway” Cabaret. **IMPORTANT: Due to the ongoing global pandemic, for local Nashville students/inquiries, you must show proof of vaccination or present weekly negative COVID tests to be considered for in-person instruction, though this will be left to my discretion. NO EXCEPTIONS.

Singing Lessons

I could never write enough to express how wonderful Liza is. I've only been taking lessons for a couple of months and my technique, my range, and my confidence have all skyrocketed. I'm hitting notes, safely, that I never thought I'd be able to hit again after my tonsil surgery. I loved her lessons so much that I asked her to teach my sister as well. She's such a bright light, super encouraging, and has all of the knowledge and experience to back it up. Truly an amazing teacher and person. You'd be doing yourself a disservice to go with literally anyone else.

I have been taking private voice lessons with Liza for a year. It’s the best instruction and guidance I’ve had in all my years of singing. She reached me how to properly care for my instrument and has given me the confidence I’ve never had before. She is wonderful!

Liza had only worked with our daughter for a few in-person studio lessons before we were all thrown into “virtual-meeting-land.” She did not miss a SINGLE beat in continuing to teach her lessons while also building a quality relationship. We are so impressed with our daughter’s sustained motivation and musical progress that she is experiencing through working with Liza. She is knowledgeable and passionate about music and a truly joyful teacher.

Liza is an amazing teacher! She helps you reach your goals, whatever they are. If you want to sing Broadway, pop, ballads, even Kpop. She will go out of her way to make sure you have the best lesson every single time! I'm always so excited for voice lessons every week and Liza wants to get to know you as a person too, not just another student. If you are hesitant about starting lessons with Liza, go ahead and do it! You'll have the time of you life.

Liza is the best teacher we could have asked for our twin boys. They are 7 years old and Liza knows how to motivate them every single time, which is not easy, especially now that they are taking a virtual piano class. We love her and we are grateful to have her as our music teacher. She is fun, creative, and has an amazing energy!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing is based off of the personalized and detailed attention I give to each student and his/her specific needs, during and outside of a lesson. My pricing is also based off of my education level and specific degrees obtained: a Bachelor of Music in vocal performance and a minor in piano performance from the Baldwin-Wallace Conservatory of Music, and a Master of Arts degree in Music Education from New York University. In terms of lessons, a vocal lesson will have customized warm ups focusing on current repertoire needs, music fundamentals and foundations, aural and theory skills, and myself as a trained accompanist. Due to current remote teaching, I am recording all accompaniments and personally emailing those recordings to each student for home practice and performance. A piano lesson would have similar customized warm ups including scales and finger exercises, training in music fundamentals and foundations, aural and theory skills, and personal attention to proper form. Due to current remote teaching, I record myself playing repertoire as a teaching aide for students and their parents. I charge $40 for a 30-minute lesson, $55 for a 45-minute lesson, and $75 for a 60-minute lesson.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I consider our first lesson an opportunity to be acquainted with one another. I inquire about the student's interest in music, preferred styles and genres, any previous musical instruction or performance opportunities, and specific goals that student is looking to meet. I also enjoy knowing favorite colors, favorite books, favorite foods, etc. Knowing my student helps me be a better a teacher.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    As stated previously, I have a Bachelor of Music degree in vocal performance and a minor in piano performance from the Baldwin-Wallace Conservatory of Music, where I studied performance, art song and opera literature, music history, musical theater, opera, language and diction, form and analysis, 18th century counterpoint, and anatomy to better understand the vocal chords as a muscle. I graduated with a Master of Arts degree in Music Education from New York University, continuing my study in choral and orchestral conducting, practicums in percussion, brass, woodwind and string instruments, compositional process in symphonic work, music therapy, and 20th century opera studies. I have also partial first-year course work completed towards a Ph.D. degree in Historical Musicology. I am certified by New York State to teach music K-12, with reciprocity in almost every state in the continental U.S. Growing up, I studied voice, piano, violin, dance and acrobats, acting, and French Horn. I have been performing professionally since I was 14 years old. I was a member of the East End Kids, who had the pleasure of performing at the opening of Disneyland Paris in 1993. I've performed in chorales, musicals and operas both nationally and internationally for over 10 years while living in New York City. In 2005 at the Downtown Cabaret Theater, I portrayed the role of "Jeanie" in a production of HAIR, which won two Connecticut Circle Critic's Awards. I am currently a member of the Nashville Opera and the Nashville Symphony Chorus. In June of 2019, The Nashville Symphony & Chorus and the Nashville Ballet collaborated on a production of Carmina Burana, with bold new visions of performance and original choreography, which I was humbled to perform in. In October of 2019, I made my Nashville Opera debut in "Madame Butterfly." And in January 2020, I had the pleasure of singing backup vocals for the band FOREIGNER and was a featured soloist with the Nashville Symphony in "The Times They Are A Changin'," an orchestral tribute to the music and poetry of Bob Dylan.
