Former Prof. Berklee College of Music offers Singing Lesson in your home/by Skype!

Methodology

I am happy and thankful to do the work I love both as a coach and a singer! There are a few graduates of Berklee College of Music here, but I am the only voice teacher in Paris who has taught at Berklee College of Music, one of the top ten music schools in the world. I offer you rigorous and fun voice lessons, and I can promise you... if you work, you will grow.

As a teacher, I have worked with about 100 voice students. I've taught private lessons to major label artists, touring singers, musical theater actors, teenagers preparing for music school, professionals who want a creative hobby, and many other types of people.

I've learned that no two students are exactly the same, so I've become first and foremost an ally and creative collaborator of my students.

I earned my degree in vocal performance in New York City, where my teachers sang with legendary artists (like Bob Dylan, Blondie, & Luther Vandross), at the Metropolitan Opera House, and on Broadway. I specialize in contemporary commercial music styles –pop, indie, jazz, soul, rock, world music, and r&b. I'm also an award-winning singer and songwriter with awards in both Pop music and Latin Jazz.



Ambassador

One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and response guaranteed. Mari will plan your first lesson with care.

Background

Learning to sing is empowering. So, whether you are looking for more range, flexibility, vocal power, or self-confidence, prepare yourself for positive change!

I am an award winning singer-songwriter, but I started off as a voice student like you. It's important to me that your understanding and independence grow with each lesson because the point is for you to become autonomous: to learn how to sing well, perform well, and to take care of yourself. A great voice is meant to last a lifetime, and with the right care, it will!

All lessons are a mix of technique and performance. I lead you through exercises, and teach you the techniques to succeed at them. We will also spend time on the repertoire of your choice. I specialize in popular music styles: pop, soul, rock, jazz, musical theater, Latin Jazz, etc.

Teaching popular music styles is a relatively new phenomenon. Vocal technique has been something curated by the classical community almost exclusively. I am happy I can offer you the most up-to-date techniques on how to sing non-classical music healthily, and these are techniques I learned and tested as a student in New York City.

I teach lessons in your home or apartment. If you don't have a keyboard or piano, I will bring mine.

If you have any questions, send me a message and tell me about yourself. I will be happy to answer you.

Angie

Perfect! Merci beaucoup Mari ! J'ai adoré suivre tes cours de chant cette année. Grâce à toi, j'ai acquis de la technique, j'ai beaucoup progressé et j'ai pris confiance en moi. Chaque cours est un moment de plaisir et de partage, je suis honorée de t'avoir comme professeure !

Mari's response

Très bonne expérience avec toi, Angie. Je suis ravie de pouvoir t'aider avec ta technique vocale et performance ! Tu as réussi à te sentir plus libre et forte dans toute ta tessiture, et à te découvrir comme artiste! Je suis fière de tout le boulot que tu as fait et ravie de voir ce que tu vas faire par la suite!

Isabelle

Excellent! Mari est une professeure à l’écoute de ses élèves qui prend en compte notre histoire et nos attentes. Elle a une belle énergie et a pleins de conseils pour arriver facilement à faire « sortir sa voix ».
Merci

Mari's response

Isabelle comes to voice lessons with no previous background in singing but she brings certain undeniable strengths: intelligence, attention to detail, and a disciplined mentality. Her willingness to learn and explore new spaces with a balanced ego and open mind will serve her well as a singer!

Interview with Mari

QUESTION 01 | 08
Depuis quand développez­-vous une passion pour la musique et plus particulièrement pour votre instrument de prédilection ?
Mari — My grandfather was a musician, and from my earliest memory, I knew I wanted to be a musician too. Hearing beautiful music, and particularly singing, made me feel so alive. My parents played a lot of Motown music, as well as classical music, punk music, top 40, and music from Latin America. I heard so many different kinds of voices, and I heard how strong and flexible the voice is. I fell in love with singing, and I'm still there today!
QUESTION 02 | 08
Quelle musique pouvez-vous écouter en boucle avec toujours le même plaisir (et sans devenir dingue) ?
Mari — I listen to almost every style of music, and I'm so glad about that. What I choose to listen to depends on my mood. Do I want to dance, or am I feeling introspective? Do I feel like listening to something that's current or am I nostalgic? There are so many ways that music can be great. It's really more about the moment!
QUESTION 03 | 08
Parlez-nous du cours le plus difficile ou étonnant que vous avez pu donner !
Mari — Singing is technically challenging, but there's also a mental side to it that people don't expect. It can feel vulnerable, and learning how to work through that is huge! My students come to me because they want to sing better, and yes, they sing so much better. They also learn about themselves, and find a new confidence through their singing challenges. It is really exciting to see!
QUESTION 04 | 08
D'après vous, quel est l'instrument le plus compliqué à maîtriser et pourquoi ?
Mari — The hardest instrument to master is the one you don't like! J Your curiosity, and your love for the instrument make the difference. When you love something, you will work at it, and you will have fun even with the challenges that come with it.
QUESTION 05 | 08
Quelles sont, pour vous, les clés de la réussite (hormis celles de Sol et de Fa) ?
Mari — Curiosity, courage, and consistency!!
QUESTION 06 | 08
Citez 3 musiciens avec lesquels vous rêveriez de faire un boeuf dans un bar à 2 h du mat et dites-nous pourquoi !
Mari — That is a really hard question!!! There are so many great musicians I would LOVE to play with, but this would be an interesting team:
Freddie Mercury, Miles Davis, and Bjork. They are so different from one another, have strong personalities, and are all amazing musicians. It would be an exciting show!
QUESTION 07 | 08
Une anecdote à raconter en rapport avec votre métier ou votre scolarité (et pas forcément la fiesta que vous avez faite suite à votre entrée au Conservatoire) ?
Mari — My voice teacher from Berklee was so wonderful and also very demanding. When we first met, he was playing all over the piano, leading me to sing high and low, fast and slow, soft and loud, staccato and legato. He looked at me and said, "You've got to have a strong mind. That is the first rule of singing. If you have that, you can do anything." In both my academic life, and my artistic career, it's been the most useful advice I've received. I was lucky enough to get it on the first day of school!
QUESTION 08 | 08
Quel est votre petite touche qui fait de vous un Superprof adoré par tous ses élèves ?
Mari — You may learn more from my student reviews, but I think it's that I really listen to, respect, and care about my students and their progress.
