I'm an experienced teacher, performer, and songwriter/producer. I teach piano and voice to beginning and intermediate students of all ages!

My students learn not only learn to play or sing the songs they're most interested in, they also learn about the music theory behind the songs, so they can flex their own creativity! I also have music industry experience and can teach students about songwriting, live performance, home recording, production, self-promotion, and forming a band.

I have been teaching acting since 2013 and use a combination of tools and techniques from many of the well known acting theories. Through exploration, you will learn how to use the "acting fundamentals" (given circumstances, personalization, actions/tactics) to discover an honest connection to the script.

NOTE: All in-person students are required to show proof of vaccination against COVID-19.

I play many instruments, but Guitar is my first instrument. I'll go through a method book together with you, in which you can learn the basics, including note reading, playing some simple chords...After some months this basic course will open a door for you to enter the world of Guitar playing and you'll be able to play many songs. Many of my students are interested to sing to Guitar and I help them to sing to Guitar too because I am a voice instructor too. Guitar is an easy and fun instrument to play.

"All my three kids have enjoyed piano lessons with Marty. The oldest for more than two years! We are moving out of the country, so unfortunately we have to leave her; I wish we could take her with us! She is such a dedicated teacher. My kids have learned so much from her, not only playing the piano but also music theory. She is also flexible in scheduling, so we could always find a time that worked well for our busy family schedule. We will miss her!"
