Growing as a musician and producer has been a remarkably fulfilling path and my passion for sharing that adventure is what drives my excitement for teaching. I hope to bring positive energy and insight to all my students’ lessons and help them grow. I am interested in working with students of all ages, and enjoy helping with everything — learning how to sing or improve vocal technique, learning how to play piano, cover favorite artists, perform, record, navigate ProTools of Logic or digital/analog synths. I you have a specific goal or project in mind, long or short term I'd love to help!

About Marie H.

Marie is a music theory junkie and music production nerd. She spends most of her free time petting her adorable Aussie puppies, Max & Bug. When she gets around to it she writes songs and produces them from the ground up in her home studio. She has spent innumerable hours analyzing Wagner’s Ring cycle, though her deepest passions lie in the Pop/Rock/Electronic world of music. She primarily produces House music and loves listening to 20th Century Classic Rock. Queen’s Greatest Hits, Styx’s The Grand Illusion and The Cars’ Heartbeat City were some of her favorite albums to listen to as a young, growing musician and today she can’t get enough of Lady Gaga’s Angel Down.

Marie has helped me with refining my sound and getting back into singing with proper technique. Her feedback is constructive and she has an intuition for how to coach a vocalist even over Zoom. Fantastic!

"My name is Lily. I am 6 years old. I think Marie is an awesome piano teacher because she is kind, focused, patient, and nice. And also, I really, really, really like her singing voice and I like it when she sings along when I play. I feel happy with her as my teacher because after each lesson, I feel more focused. Thank you, Marie!!"

If you are looking for someone who brings their passion for music with them as they show you the path to amazing progress in your voice, then you have found the right teacher. Marie is truly amazing, there are literally not enough stars on the rating to give her justice. I have been working with Marie for a few months and have improved not only my voice but my confidence as a performer and my understanding of the art of singing.

Marie is an AMAZING piano teacher. I'm began my lessons about a year ago as an adult...which I've heard is a difficult time to learn piano. I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to play with "two hands" ever...but she had me playing songs with both hands within a matter of weeks. She is patient, very talented and a really great teacher. I look forward to my lessons with her each week. I can see my progress happening with each passing lesson. I am already playing songs that inspired me to learn piano in the first place!! I would highly recommend anyone that wants a great teacher to hire Marie.

Marie is a great piano teacher, I have been with her since Oct. 2018. She is very patient and works with me to learn new things to continue to grow in my piano playing. I have always wanted to play and started learning at 60 years old. She helps me improve with each new song.

She is by far a great instructor. She knows what she’s doing and is extremely motivational. I couldn’t ask for a better instructor! 10/10 would recommend!
