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

I earned two BA degrees in Music and Modern Languages from Sarah Lawrence College in New York.

Excellent! Bon prof
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 ».
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!
Perfect! J'ai commencé à prendre des cours avec Mari depuis peu et je ne suis pas déçu ! En plus d'être extrêmement compétente, elle est très patiente et pédagogue. C'est rare de trouver des cours de cette qualité sur Paris ! Je recommande vivement !
Je travaille avec Mari depuis plusieurs mois et c'est vraiment un plaisir. Elle m'a vraiment aidé à améliorer ma voix de chant et de présentation en général. Elle est experte dans son domaine, très professionnelle et toujours à l'écoute- je la recommande vivement!!!
I have worked with Mari for several years and I highly recommend her! She's a dedicated and talented musician and educator.
I have had many piano teachers and Mari is definitely the best of them all. I have come a long way thanks to her. She is not only a great teacher, but also very patient and kind. Highly recommended!
