Marissa S.

Woonsocket, RI

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 t
o 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 strong passion for musical theatre and contemporary genres. My focus is on students learning contemporary genres in the most healthy but stylistically accurate way. I believe the singer has to be multi-faceted to have a flourishing career in the world of music. To just sing one genre is unrealistic in this day in age. I want to help my students grow to be diverse singers who have a healthy technique that will get them through any career they may pursue.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide music. Student is required to have a full size keyboard or piano.

*** Specialties ***
I have a main focus in musical theatre and contemporary style singing. I believe the versatile singer should be able to sing any genre with proper technique while being stylistically correct. I also like to incorporate my acting knowledge into lessons, helping students not only sing but act out the song. I also can teach classical voice.

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.

Karm A.

Mattapan, MA

I have been teaching for 4 years.
Work with me and I will help you develop your musical hearing, your rhythm, your sense of self and the true artist hidden inside of you. I don't believe in "I can't" if someone like you can do it, so can you with practice, the right tools and dedication.

I teach using techniques from great dancers, Lester Horton, Marta Graham, Asadata Dafora etc..., connecting musically and emotionally.
my philosophy? Dance is my religion

About Karm

Hello
My name is Karm and I am so excited to start that new adventure with you.
I have been teaching performing arts for 4 years, I believe in connecting with performance of any type (acting, dancing) once that connection is established you become the art. Expressing emotions and sense of self is what I encourage.

I Started dancing as soon as I could walk considering my family was into the arts. I studied dance first in Haiti at Joelle Donatien belot dance school. Later when I moved to the United States, I continued my training at Pine Manor College where I earned a minor in dance. At th
at time I also joined Dance Ensemble which was a student professional dance team.
Today I owned KS Dance studio where I teach classes to all ages. I continue my training every week at the Boston ballet and at the Dance Complex. Occasionally I travel to NY for more training at the Alvin Ailey dance school.

Marina F.

Roxbury Crossing, MA

I firmly believe that there is no right way to move. Dance is an intensely personal medium, and that vitality must come from within. With that in mind, I teach with a focus on learning how to claim movement and fit it onto your own body.

About Marina

I'm currently a double major in Math and English at Connecticut College. I attended Concord Academy for high school, focusing in dance and engineering. That's also where I was first exposed to teaching, working as an assistant to my dance instructor there. Since then, I've worked in a musical theatre summer camp in Aruba, been a drop-in tutor at my public library, and worked in my school's Academic Resource Center. I look forward to meeting, and working with, you.
