In my singing lessons with students, I work with them on building fundamental musical skills including breathing techniques, ear training and most importantly - health vocal habits. Beginning students will learn the basics of singing in tune, keeping time while singing, and breath support. Beyond that, I will work on developing resonance, earning how to manipulate the voice in order to achieve the sound we want, and developing a good tone. If the student desires, we can also look at songwriting, song interpretation and how to read sheet music. My musical experience allows my teaching to encompass a variety of genres and styles, including pop, rock, jazz, blues, folk, musical theatre and classical. I will also help my students develop the skills necessary for auditions, recitals and choirs by building performance skills and repertoire.

Mariel has completely changed my singing for the better. I had previously had a singing teacher who was uninterested, uninspiring, and unmotivational. With Mariel - I always look forward to our lessons! She has developed my tone, allowed me to take control of my breathing, completely boost my confidence, and has made me fall in love with singing again! She has also encouraged me with my songwriting, helping me to find a sound that is natural to me. I have also developed a greater understanding of music theory which has helped me with reading sheet music as well as writing music.
