About Marissa

I am a recent graduate of Rhode Island College with a degree in both Music and Musical Theatre. With my music degree, I strongly focused on musical theatre pedagogy as well as classical music. I also trained extensively in dance and acting which I believe has helped me tremendously when teaching voice. I also have studied piano for the past 10 years and continue to train in voice.

My approach to teaching, whether it be voice or piano, is one with care and concern for the student. Each student is an individual and will take in knowledge in different ways. I always like to cater my teaching to whatever the students needs are. This requires observation and experimentation on my part. When I find what works, it makes for a more productive lesson for my student and I. In voice, I have a ...

Excellent Teacher for my 6 year old Son

Marissa is a terrific piano teacher. She has tons of patience and a great way of connecting with my son. He is a 6 year old boy who is very active and she is able to hold his attention and keep him interested in piano. It has been incredible watching his skill and confidence levels grow after each visit with Marissa. I would highly recommend Marissa to anyone with a young child who wants to learn piano.

Classes start with basic stretching followed by isolations and rhythm exercises. Any student level will increase by getting this FUNDAMENTAL exercises in as part of their weekly routine. Following these exercises we will work on various short combinations (varying by level) & begin working on an actual piece of choreo. Many of my students have remarked that their favorite part about our lessons is the "No pressure" atmosphere created and the very simple break downs and repetition of movements.

About April

I have been dancing and teaching dance for over 10 years. My experience includes teaching new students along with professional dancers. Dance is my love and I have developed a very fun, easy system for any student to improve their abilities whether it's for a night out on the town or choreographing a music video. I have worked with children as young as 2 and coached adults up to 70 yrs old. I like to make the experience fun and gratifying for the students. I generally give my students short drills and exercises they can do for 10-20 mins at home 3-5 times a week which increases their skill level more rapidly while staying on a nice gradient scale. Students learn everything from rhythm exercises to basic isolation and grove movements.

I also offer other services such as stage ...
