Mariana L.

Minneapolis, MN

About Mariana

Born in Panama City, Panama, Mariana completed a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from Shenandoah Conservatory and completed a Master of Music in Vocal Pedagogy at the Catholic University of America with an emphasis in Latin American Music in 2009. She has sung on the stages of Italy and Spain participating in performances of Die Zauberfl te, L'Elisir d'Amore and La Traviata. Mariana has sung in the DC area with Zarzuela Di Si and the In Series as well as The City Choir of Washington and The Washington Chorus.
As a voice teacher, Mariana has experience teaching students of all ages but
mostly children and teenagers. Her approach is simple yet effective, speaking in terms that are easy for each individual student to understand and remember.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students will develop a strong vocal technique and build healthy vocal habits. They will learn all aspects needed to become a well rounded singer: diction, interpretation, musicianship, breath support and focus, all of this while having fun! Also, they will acquire the tools to keep up the work they've done during their lessons in the time between meetings with the teacher.
Pianists will learn to read music and play by ear while acquiring a healthy technique to avoid any injuries.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I own a Yamaha digital piano.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I own a traveling keyboard but prefer to use a larger instrument if available at the student's home. I also provide musical scores and the use of metronome.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, pop, musical theatre, rock

Excellent vocal instructor & coach

Mariana has been a consistently impressive instructor over the past year. She has shown that she can identify improvements for her students in a surprisingly accurate and quick manner. A year later, I still rely on her tips in performance scenarios and when just sitting at home practicing.

When I first started taking lessons with Mariana, I was bad...real bad. Now I am considerably better and that feedback is from very honest (and very forward) friends of mine!! I am thankful for the fact that Mariana does not let my mistakes go unnoticed and works with me to correct them. It should be noted that she has an incredibly polite delivery when identifying mistakes and offering improvement tips. This is something I don't personally need but is so out of the ordinary for instructors that I feel it deserves recognition.

I would highly recommend Mariana to any type of student singing in any genre. She is very big on the fundamentals but understands a person's musical style and goals so she tailors her lessons to fit the student. Whether it be critique of a recording or an in person lesson - Mariana’s teaching style, polite delivery and accuracy of improvement areas lead to a shorter time frame for a student to reach their goals.

I have been able to teach myself every instrument I've put my hands on (5 so far). From the perspective of someone who has very high expectations of myself and my music...I would not have been able to get where I am vocally without her.

Awesome teacher for kids!

My daughter has always loved to sing and at 8 yrs old was ready for some training. Mariana has been very patient, gentle, and encouraging to her-never pushing her past her comfort. My daughter is not normally shy, but she cares so much about singing that she was a bit nervous in her first lessons. She just had her third lesson and was able to really open up and sing. Mariana praised her and was able to encourage her to let go and not worry about a mistake! I think the best compliment you can give a teacher is to listen to the child talk about her lesson all afternoon and share with everyone she can find what she learned and her "real voice" Mariana also works very hard to explain in kid terms what she is teaching and how to warm up. I have sung all my life, but never had any training. Im learning right along with my daughter and it has been an amazing experience. Im really glad to have this opportunity to work with Mariana.

Djenane S.

Saint Paul, MN

As a Spanish teacher, the curriculum I use, is content-enriched, meaning that I integrate learning of a specific subject area with language development so that language is acquired in a meaningful context. I use instructional techniques appropriate for children. My teaching philosophy: 98-100% use of the Spanish language. Activities that encourage learning through active participation, including singing, dancing, movement, role-playing, games, stories, arts and crafts.

About Djenane

Djenane has dedicated herself to the research, development, and promotion of traditional Haitian dance, song and storytelling.

She received a BA in Physical Education and Sports at Cuba’s International School for Physical Education and Sports. She has been teaching dance to young children for over 15 years.

D’jenane S. is an exemplary performing artist and educator. D’jenane was a Mentor Artist at Youth in Arts for over two years, teaching about the culture, dance and music of her native Haiti in both long and short-term residencies.

D’jenane also performed in our Assembly programs, bringing her internationally acclaimed troupe from Haiti to celebrate and honor the traditions of her culture. The opening ceremony of her Haitian Festival was held at Youth in Arts Gallery along with her costumes, photos and video of dance performances.

Youth in Arts is one of the leading arts education provider in the Northern California. Our mission is to provide the community with high quality experiences and instruction in the visual and performing arts. Youth in Arts’ programs are based upon the belief that a child’s balanced development and education must include the arts.

I served as D’jenane’s Supervisor and found her to be a remarkable educator and artist always willing to learn and grow. As a Mentor Artist she received consistently positive teacher evaluations. Teachers, administrators and students have loved working with her.

We received two consecutive California Arts Council grants to support D’jenane and honor her high quality artistic technique and knowledge. She is both a talented performer and educator. D’jenane’s manner and excellent artistry entrances teachers and students alike. Her technique and encouragement allows room for growth, creativity and unique self-expression.

D’jenane has continually proved to be an excellent collaborator, artist and leader, devoted to student success while accommodating various learning modalities. We miss her!

Djenane is an excellent Haitian dance teacher with lots of technique and exuberance. She empowers people to do their best and feel good dancing.
She teaches the history, songs, and culture of Haiti with joy and you want to learn more with each class. My life has been enriched through Djenane's work and her family is just as inspirational. Do yourself a favor and take her classes you will be glad you did.
