Mark is an excellent voice coach! He has been very helpful in teaching me breathing techniques, voice health, understanding my vocal range and how to improve my range. He has made me feel more confident in my abilities and I am looking forward to future lessons.

Thanks Mark!

I couldn't of picked a better voice instructor!

I've always been a confident songwriter but when it came to singing I struggled; especially with pitch. Thats when I started my lessons with Mark and right away knew he was the right instructor. Instead of making me follow some completely pre-scripted lesson plan, Mark helped me correct my pitch and overall singing while practicing songs I had written myself.

I've been working with him for almost two years now and I've noticed significant improvements across the board and have gained so much more confidence in my singing abilities. Enough that I actually just finished recording a 13-track album of songs all written and sung by me. I can't thank Mark enough for helping me follow my dreams and for continuing to help me grow as a singer.

You are doing a great job with Robbie. He is still having a difficult time remembering the chords and he refuses to practice at home because of this. If you could give him one song to remember to practice at home that may help. He would like to practice at home but he gets so frustrated because of his memory with this. Robbie also enjoys you.

Mariana L.

Minneapolis, MN

About Mariana

Born in Panama City, Panama, Mariana completed a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from Shenandoah Conservatory and completed a Master of Music in Vocal Pedagogy at the Catholic University of America with an emphasis in Latin American Music in 2009. She has sung on the stages of Italy and Spain participating in performances of Die Zauberfl te, L'Elisir d'Amore and La Traviata. Mariana has sung in the DC area with Zarzuela Di Si and the In Series as well as The City Choir of Washington and The Washington Chorus.
As a voice teacher, Mariana has experience teaching students of all ages but
mostly children and teenagers. Her approach is simple yet effective, speaking in terms that are easy for each individual student to understand and remember.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students will develop a strong vocal technique and build healthy vocal habits. They will learn all aspects needed to become a well rounded singer: diction, interpretation, musicianship, breath support and focus, all of this while having fun! Also, they will acquire the tools to keep up the work they've done during their lessons in the time between meetings with the teacher.
Pianists will learn to read music and play by ear while acquiring a healthy technique to avoid any injuries.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I own a Yamaha digital piano.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I own a traveling keyboard but prefer to use a larger instrument if available at the student's home. I also provide musical scores and the use of metronome.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, pop, musical theatre, rock

Excellent vocal instructor & coach

Mariana has been a consistently impressive instructor over the past year. She has shown that she can identify improvements for her students in a surprisingly accurate and quick manner. A year later, I still rely on her tips in performance scenarios and when just sitting at home practicing.

When I first started taking lessons with Mariana, I was bad...real bad. Now I am considerably better and that feedback is from very honest (and very forward) friends of mine!! I am thankful for the fact that Mariana does not let my mistakes go unnoticed and works with me to correct them. It should be noted that she has an incredibly polite delivery when identifying mistakes and offering improvement tips. This is something I don't personally need but is so out of the ordinary for instructors that I feel it deserves recognition.

I would highly recommend Mariana to any type of student singing in any genre. She is very big on the fundamentals but understands a person's musical style and goals so she tailors her lessons to fit the student. Whether it be critique of a recording or an in person lesson - Mariana’s teaching style, polite delivery and accuracy of improvement areas lead to a shorter time frame for a student to reach their goals.

I have been able to teach myself every instrument I've put my hands on (5 so far). From the perspective of someone who has very high expectations of myself and my music...I would not have been able to get where I am vocally without her.

Awesome teacher for kids!

My daughter has always loved to sing and at 8 yrs old was ready for some training. Mariana has been very patient, gentle, and encouraging to her-never pushing her past her comfort. My daughter is not normally shy, but she cares so much about singing that she was a bit nervous in her first lessons. She just had her third lesson and was able to really open up and sing. Mariana praised her and was able to encourage her to let go and not worry about a mistake! I think the best compliment you can give a teacher is to listen to the child talk about her lesson all afternoon and share with everyone she can find what she learned and her "real voice" Mariana also works very hard to explain in kid terms what she is teaching and how to warm up. I have sung all my life, but never had any training. Im learning right along with my daughter and it has been an amazing experience. Im really glad to have this opportunity to work with Mariana.

Josephine is just the violin teacher I was looking for!

Every lesson includes scales and etudes along with a couple of songs to work on. Her teaching is attentive to detail and well-rounded (spot-on technique, music reading, easily-digestible theory, etc.), while still really fostering enjoyment in playing and slow but steady growth. Whether you’re looking for classical violin, fiddling, or bluegrass, Josie will help you learn whatever you want to learn!

I definitely recommend a longer class time if you can do it - a few extra run-throughs of each song and scale make a big difference in your muscle memory and ability to practice efficiently on your own.

Of the few violin teachers I've had in my sporadic years of playing violin, Josie has inspired me to play the most, and I know I will continue taking lessons with her for as long as I can. Highly recommended!

Josephine teaches violin to my 8 year old son Kanishk, continuing for over 7 months. She is great with my son and very patient with him. She is very professional and guides my son to do his best. My son is doing great and we have increased the session from 1 to twice weekly.

She has a very positive attitude towards my son and always encourages him with good feedback.

David W.

Saint Michael, MN

About David

Howdy! My name is David, and I am an experienced musician and English educator.
On the music side, I've been making some kind of noise ever since I got my first guitar at the age of 6. I am well-educated in theory, technique, and applications for all things musical, but my focus is and always has been guitar. I have a lot of live and studio playing experience, and have excellent knowledge of the technical aspects of the instrument, such as amps, pedals, wiring, and more. I love everything about the instrument, and my goal is to help you learn to love it too!
The English language has always
been my strong suit when it comes to schooling. I've participated in various creative writing contests, tutored peers at the high school and college level, and have been enrolled in advanced courses concerning the subject since they were first available to me. There's a beauty to putting your thoughts into words, and the way we express ourselves is becoming more important now than ever before.

David is very patient, especially with an active, non focused 7 year old. He has great songs that are catchy for a beginner. He is also very poised with showing what the beginner will be able to do when he practices. We'll be asking for more lessons!
