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 to 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 ...

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.

Wesley C. Somerville, MA

I began actively studying dance in 2003. Since then I have travelled all across the country, learning and performing. In 2010, my dance troupe (The Woodside Jumpers), took 3rd place in The International Lindy Hop Championship.

Social dancing is one of the best and most enjoyable ways of meeting people and having fun. It can sometimes feel a bit scary putting yourself out there, so getting private lessons is a great way to boost your confidence and help you navigate the social dance floor to meet new people.

About Wesley

I am a man of many artistic pursuits. Music, dance and food have all been strong life pursuits of mine. I have studied them, shared them with others, made a living off of them, and used them as a means for supporting travel. I believe what sets me apart most as a teacher is not only my pursuit of my artistic passions, but my enjoyment of teaching. I truly savor the process. I've made some dynamic moves in my life (including a year and half hitchhiking the US) and have grown a great deal. I know the importance of being nurtured in something new. I'm here to help you in however you need it. I've learned after having many different teachers, and teaching many different students, that there's more to this than just knowing what you're teaching. It's about knowing how to teach and how ...

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 that 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 ...

4 Fundamental Tap Dance Steps for Beginners

Good dancers can make even the most complicated, strenuous techniques look effortless and fluid. If you've ever watched an experienced dancer perform a tap routine, you probably watched in disbelief as their feet turned into a blur of movement that seemed to move independently from the rest of their body. Sometimes the sound effects are even more impressive; when done well, tap dance is a musical art form that creates its own rhythm. Do you want to train your own feet to create this unique mixt … Read More
