About Marissa V.

My name is Marissa, and I come to the music studio with a passion for teaching students of all ages and needs. My education and training has taken me from Phoenix, AZ where I grew up to Greenville, SC where I received both an undergraduate degree in Music Education and a master's degree in Performance. While in Greenville from 2007-2014, I took many choral tours and led both adult choirs and childrens choirs. I often enjoyed performing for local children's CD recordings. I currently sing in a nationally acclaimed community choir, The Rivertree Singers, who perform regularly in and around the Greenville area. It was also my privilege to train a young member of the American Boy Choir and accompany for him in 2011. It was in Orlando, FL that I decided to build my own studio through Takelessons, and I enjoyed every minute of it! In August of 2016, my family moved back to South Carolina to be near family. After a brief hiatus of enjoying motherhood, I am excited to be back with Takelessons and to have the opportunity to work with talented students here in South Carolina!

Lessons with me are always conducted in the utmost professional way, and I come to the studio with a desire to teach not only music, but the love of music. I love music and want my students to love it too! I use illustrations and examples to make abstract ideas more concrete. Students are encouraged to explore their voice and piano skills in each of their lessons and during their practice time. I challenge my students to do their best and try to find the balance between keeping them inspired and pushing them to do their best!

My son really enjoyed his lesson and said Marissa was very funny. She was also very responsive to my request.

We had a great lesson. As the first lesson, Marissa took time to get to know my daughter and understand her background. She kept the lesson well paced. My daughter thought Mrs. V was both nice, and funny as they worked through the lesson.

Marissa is a wonderful instructor. She listens to her students and works with them to find material that is fun and engaging but also challenging. She provides constructive criticism when needed, and always quick to praise a job well done.

Marissa is a great teacher. She is very patients and really knows what she is doing. I am an intermediate singer and she was able to teach me some great things. I would recommend her to anyone.
