About Me

From the time I began musical training at the age of 5, I knew that music making would always be an important part of my life. It became my muse and I followed it all around the world. I have performed in Japan, England, Scotland, Wales, Italy, France, Austria, and the United States. I know what makes a good musician and a good performer and I'm pleased to be able to share that with my students! MY STUDENTS WIN AUDITIONS! I taught in several of the States and in London. I am also a certified teacher in Missouri, Kansas and other States including England, Scotland and Wales. I hold a Bachelor’s degree and Doctorate from Ball State University, and a Master’s Degree from the University of Bridgeport. I have studied on fellowship at the Aspen Music Festival and University of London. While teaching in London I performed at many famous venues such as Queen Elizabeth Hall, St. John’s Smith Square and Somerset House. I sing at Lyric Opera of Kansas City where I have appeared in over 90 productions. Upcoming: Mozart: Magic Flute, November 9-17, 2013 and Puccini: La Bohème, March 15-23, 2014   I also sing professionally at Grace and Holy Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Kansas City. Whether you are seeking coaching on technique, Broadway, Opera or the American Songbook, I would be happy to work with you to realize your full potential. I get excited about helping students become good performers! Let me help you become the best musician you can be, IN PERSON or ONLINE!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher with a great sense of humor. You will also learn a lot of music theory and music history from me! My lessons begin with some training in reading music (Music Theory) and I suggest that you purchase Alfred's Music Theory Volume One or Two depending on your level of understanding.

After refreshing your music reading and rhythm skills, we will listen to you sing and begin to vocalize. I will develop exercises just for you, to help you develop your voice, making it stronger and more flexible.

When you have warmed up your voice with vocal exercises, we will work together on the music you wish to learn. It could be a song, an aria, a Broadway or Opera aria, or a religious piece.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Large 30 foot living room with two pianos, music stands, keyboard, couches, seating area.
Mac computer, multiple cameras and great sound system.

*** Specialties ***
Classical Bel Canto (beautiful voice) style, operatic singing, Broadway style, Art Songs (Lieder in French, German and Italian.)

Marion F. San Diego, CA

Subjects Taught

ESL, French

About Me

With a Master's degree in Linguistics and a Bachelor's degree in French Language and Institutions (which included a year studying at the University of Paris-Sorbonne and the Ecole du Louvre), I will infect you with my love of learning languages and help you learn French. My years of teaching French at the high school level, college level, at private language schools, and tutoring make me a perfect candidate to be your French tutor. I speak French every day because my "significant other" is French.

If you do not speak English or wish to improve your English, my years of teaching English as a Second Language at private language schools will be just what you need to achieve better English proficiency.

I have been a foreign language learner myself so I know what it's like to learn another language. I have not only studied French but also Spanish, Portuguese, and German. Italian is next on my list. I have traveled extensively in Europe and Latin America and also to North Africa and Asia.

Lessons are highly interactive. I do my best to make it fun and interesting to learn grammar and then to apply what you learn in oral communication. I can use books you have or I can bring my own books. We will laugh at the complexities of learning a language and you will have a better understanding of your own language when you compare it with your target language (French or English).

You will enjoy learning French or ESL when we study together.
