Every student is a unique person who deserves a lesson customized to their individual needs. Each of my students prospers in an atmosphere of patience and encouragement. While the lessons are fun and enjoyable, the serious student will be supported in the development of skills leading to a rewarding career. And the more casual students will grow in an appreciation of music that will always enrich their lives.
I begin each voice lesson with a warm-up to prepare the student for their session. Next, we do a series of exercises specially designed to help each individual develop their skill in a way that best fits them. We then work on a piece of their choice for the remainder of the lesson, perfecting their technique and helping them become performance ready. I teach with patience and fun because I feel that this is the key to achieving goals and inspiring a good habit of practice.

I have been tutoring and teaching private lessons for over five years, and currently have over 40 active students. I received my bachelor's degree in music with an emphasis on vocal performance at the University of Redlands in 2011, and my Associate of Arts degree in 2008 from College of the Desert. Currently I teach online, locally, and at my studio, and cover a variety of subjects such as voice, music, theater, piano, math, english, music theory, just to name a few.
For academic tutoring (i.e. math, theory, vocabulary) I work on helping the student understand their homework and help prepare them for tests. I can also provide worksheets if necessary and am prepared to demonstrate problem areas in different ways if needed, because everyone learns differently. For voice, piano, music, and acting lessons I teach the student based on what their current level is. If you have no experience, that's okay! My lessons are uniquely designed to fit your needs no matter what level you may be.
As a music major I developed a deeper understanding of music theory, piano, voice, and theater. I received my A.A. in Music at College of the Desert and my Bachelor of Music degree at the University of Redlands- which I attended on a music scholarship. I have played leading roles in several operas and musicals in Southern California, including Gianni Schicchi, Die Fledermaus, La Boheme (DTL nominee), The Impresario, The Grand Duke, Patience (DTL award), Cosi fan tutte, Little Women, Seussical, and many more. I have also appeared in several concerts, opera scenes, competitions (winning music scholarships and theater awards), and worked as a singer in churches, restaurants, and in pop bands. I continue to stay active in the performance industry, because performing is a part of who I am and I could never live without it!
With this experience under my belt, I feel a desire to pass on my knowledge to students. I carry a strong passion to help people develop their abilities and make them their own. I truly believe that if someone wants something out of life they will achieve it with dedication, perseverance, confidence, and by having fun doing it!

Whether you're preparing to go pro, or you think you can't carry a tune in a bucket, I can help you find YOUR SOUND and experience the joy of singing.
I'm happy to meet my students at any location near either Pacific Palisades or North Hollywood - I can teach music at any location with a piano, and I can tutor academic subjects
A note about availability - I keep this updated as accurately as possible, but because I travel over a wide area, your preferred time slot may not be possible for me, depending on the location of the lesson. Please contact me to discuss scheduling before you sign up.
If you choose to take lessons at my home location, please be aware that I have cats. If you have a phobia or allergy, this location won't be suitable for you.

The most important aspect of vocal training that I will emphasize is breath support. Connecting to the body when singing will ensure vocal protection and prevent unwanted vocal strain. I will also focus on gaining control through scales and breathing. I would like my students to gain consistency in their lessons each week by providing them with new challenges and helping them to gain new tools when practicing. Applying these fundamental elements of healthy singing into each student's repertoire is the ultimate goal in these lessons.
Along side opera, I believe basic knowledge in piano is extremely beneficial in improving musicali
I have recently started teaching and would love to help and guide those interested in music, specifically classical voice, opera, musical theater, and piano. I would love to share the great joy it brings me with others and pass down what I have learned over the years. I have completed courses in music pedagogy and education alongside my degree, and believe in shaping my lessons around each individual's learning style so that each student may continue to grow while having fun.

Every voice is beautiful in it's own unique way. I believe that it is important to find your own voice and thrive in any musical style you desire. I was trained classically at Chapman University, where I also took part in musicals, as well as a cappella. I have performed on the Hollywood Bowl stage, in a Covergirl promotion for Pitch Perfect 2, and at the Beacon Theatre on Broadway. I love teaching all styles of music and encourage my students to explore the wonderful world of music.

*** Travel Equipment ***

*** Specialties ***
I trained classically but personally enjoy singing Pop and Musical Theatre. Because of my background, I like to make sure that my students have good technique that carries through to singing any style they like so that they can accomplish all of their goals without damaging their voices and affecting their health. I have extensive experience with singing in languages including Spanish, French, German, and Italian and like my students to experience different languages as well.

As a mother and an elementary school teacher, I knew she understood my child immediately. Marie-France is a holistic teacher who is willing to change styles without hesitation to find what works best for my daughter.
Coming from a performing and creative arts family, I love that Marie-France's show business background and her no-nonsense teaching style, is just what we needed in a teacher.
More importantly, my daughter listens to her advice and her singing has improved immeasurably. The trip is a bit of a distance for us, but totally worth every mile."

My 10-year-old son has been taking voice lessons with Loretta for about a year now. His lesson is usually the highlight of his week. He really likes it that Loretta always lets him choose the songs he learns to sing.
A couple months ago, we added piano to his lessons, which my son really enjoys. Just a couple weeks ago, he joined his school band and is now learning to play saxophone. He has been able to apply so much of what Loretta has taught him on piano to his saxophone lessons.
We started out taking lessons in Loretta's home studio, but then transitioned to Skype, which is very convenient because it eliminates travel time. I recommend either live or Skype lessons with Loretta. She is the best!"
