As a professional opera singer, I have worked with many of the tremendous leading stage directors and acting coaches in the performing arts. As a result, I was able to go from a shy and quiet artist to an artist who isn't afraid of being vulnerable and is able to have a powerful stage presence. I would love to help with both acting exercises and techniques as well as audition preparation for theater and opera auditions. I also love working on monologues and can help you find monologues and repertoire as well.

Singing is my passion and I absolutely love teaching all ages and all styles of singing. No matter what your goals are, I would love to help you in your journey!

I took several singing lessons with Marissa this summer and had so much fun! My goals were to better understand important aspects of using your voice as an instrument- gaining better control and breathing techniques. I learned a lot and gained confidence in my singing. I would love to take lessons with Marissa again in the future!

"Kelly has been my 15 year old son's acting instructor for the past three years. Kelly's broad knowledge of acting techniques coupled with her engaging and fun teaching style was a BIG win for my son's self-confidence. Kelly's can do attitude and positive outlook is contagious. She inspires you to want to improve your craft; having fun in the process. Kelly taught my son techniques that are useful in all aspects of communication; skills he can take into his adult life. I would recommend Kelly to anyone who is interested in acting, improv, public speaking or an overall tune up on how to read and respond to social situations. Thanks Kelly!"
