Former Prof. Berklee College of Music offers Singing Lesson in your home/by Skype!

Methodology

I am happy and thankful to do the work I love both as a coach and a singer! There are a few graduates of Berklee College of Music here, but I am the only voice teacher in Paris who has taught at Berklee College of Music, one of the top ten music schools in the world. I offer you rigorous and fun voice lessons, and I can promise you... if you work, you will grow.

As a teacher, I have worked with about 100 voice students. I've taught private lessons to major label artists, touring singers, musical theater actors, teenagers preparing for music school, professionals who want a creative hobby, and many other types of people.

I've learned that no two students are exactly the same, so I've become first and foremost an ally and creative collaborator of my students.

I earned my degree in vocal performance in New York City, where my teachers sang with legendary artists (like Bob Dylan, Blondie, & Luther Vandross), at the Metropolitan Opera House, and on Broadway. I specialize in contemporary commercial music styles –pop, indie, jazz, soul, rock, world music, and r&b. I'm also an award-winning singer and songwriter with awards in both Pop music and Latin Jazz.



Ambassador

One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and response guaranteed. Mari will plan your first lesson with care.

Background

Learning to sing is empowering. So, whether you are looking for more range, flexibility, vocal power, or self-confidence, prepare yourself for positive change!

I am an award winning singer-songwriter, but I started off as a voice student like you. It's important to me that your understanding and independence grow with each lesson because the point is for you to become autonomous: to learn how to sing well, perform well, and to take care of yourself. A great voice is meant to last a lifetime, and with the right care, it will!

All lessons are a mix of technique and performance. I lead you through exercises, and teach you the techniques to succeed at them. We will also spend time on the repertoire of your choice. I specialize in popular music styles: pop, soul, rock, jazz, musical theater, Latin Jazz, etc.

Teaching popular music styles is a relatively new phenomenon. Vocal technique has been something curated by the classical community almost exclusively. I am happy I can offer you the most up-to-date techniques on how to sing non-classical music healthily, and these are techniques I learned and tested as a student in New York City.

I teach lessons in your home or apartment. If you don't have a keyboard or piano, I will bring mine.

If you have any questions, send me a message and tell me about yourself. I will be happy to answer you.

Perfect! Très bonne prof de chant. Mari est à l’écoute, professionnelle et efficace dans sa méthodologie. Elle a su s’adapter à mon cas particulier et à mes souhaits. Le seul bémol, ce serait les techniques de respiration qu’elle n’enseigne pas. Elle serait plutôt dans l’émotion et la libération de la voix ce qui est peut-être bien plus précieux !

Mari's response

Such a thoughtful student! Zoe has a lovely voice and a strong intention to sing! Zoe, thank you for your trust and work! :)

Ruby

Perfect! Mari est une super prof de chant ! On se sent tout de suite à l'aise avec elle et on peut percevoir tous les progrès devant nous qui nous permettront d'exprimer notre plein potentiel sans crainte (je pensais avoir laissé un avis positif juste après la séance mais visiblement cela n'a pas marché, j'en réécris donc un au cas où). C'est surtout grâce à sa grande technicité et à sa bonne humeur que l'heure passe si vite. Hâte de vivre une prochaine séance !

Philippe

Perfect! Très bon premier cours avec Mari !

Perfect! Merci beaucoup Mari ! J'ai adoré suivre tes cours de chant cette année. Grâce à toi, j'ai acquis de la technique, j'ai beaucoup progressé et j'ai pris confiance en moi. Chaque cours est un moment de plaisir et de partage, je suis honorée de t'avoir comme professeure !

Mari's response

Très bonne expérience avec toi, Angie. Je suis ravie de pouvoir t'aider avec ta technique vocale et performance ! Tu as réussi à te sentir plus libre et forte dans toute ta tessiture, et à te découvrir comme artiste! Je suis fière de tout le boulot que tu as fait et ravie de voir ce que tu vas faire par la suite!

Excellent! Mari est une professeure à l’écoute de ses élèves qui prend en compte notre histoire et nos attentes. Elle a une belle énergie et a pleins de conseils pour arriver facilement à faire « sortir sa voix ».
Merci

Mari's response

Isabelle comes to voice lessons with no previous background in singing but she brings certain undeniable strengths: intelligence, attention to detail, and a disciplined mentality. Her willingness to learn and explore new spaces with a balanced ego and open mind will serve her well as a singer!

Stéphane

Perfect! J'ai commencé à prendre des cours avec Mari depuis peu et je ne suis pas déçu ! En plus d'être extrêmement compétente, elle est très patiente et pédagogue. C'est rare de trouver des cours de cette qualité sur Paris ! Je recommande vivement !

J
John

Perfect! Learning the techniques of singing with Mari has been a wonderful voyage of exploration, understanding and accomplishment. She is a fantastically gifted teacher with an awesome arsenal of vocal techniques to share, and she does so with infinite patience, great good humour and creativity. I could not ask nor hope for a better source of inspiration and knowledge in pursuing the difficult art of professional jazz singing. She is a real treasure and I feel that I've been lucky beyond belief to have found her in the Superprof stable of teachers !

Mari's response

John has been doing great work and is preparing a new album! He brings significant experience and insight to lessons, having worked as a singer, instrumentalist, and a theater director/actor. He is a thoughtful and interesting student who asks great questions and is dogged in his pursuit of knowledge. It's a pleasure to work with him, and to see continue to make meaningful gains with his voice!

M
Malala

Perfect! Mari was great teacher, motivating me and giving me strong advices.
I came from Angers to meet her purposely ! I hope I will be able to meet her again next time I'll be in Paris !

Mari's response

Malala had a great first lesson! She has a great attitude and a serious mentality. She listens well and trusts herself to go beyond her current abilities. I look forward to our next lessons and seeing her lovely voice begin to further transform!

Mari is knowledgeable, caring, talented, patient and sweet. She can help you progress to where you want to be. No matter you're experience level, you couldn't ask for a better teacher.

I met Mari 15 years ago in New York City, when we were both beginning our careers as singer-songwriters, and pianists. I am a regionally-known artist on the East Coast of the U.S. (You can find me at www.soundcloud.com/littlepielady). Mari's and my life intersected over a long period we both lived in New York and Boston at the same times. I've always considered Mari to be more of a vocalist than I am---not only has she studied the art of singing, she has immensely impressive control over her voice, and a remarkable ear. Even though I have been a vocalist all my life, whenever I hear or see Mari perform, I realize I need to practice more! But not only is she a highly gifted vocalist, she is also incredibly intelligent, incredibly patient, and has a gentle demeanor which makes her an ideal teacher. She teaches me almost every day, just by being herself---she will be quite an asset to Superprof, not to mention the students whose lives she will touch.

Tien

Mari is a well educated and dedicated professional with extensive teaching and performance experience. Passionate about music, she really brings excitement, humor, and a youthful vitality to everything she does. Patient and engaging, she will inspire students to work hard to achieve their goals; and equally important, she will make it fun to learn!

R
Richard

Mari is amazing. She has a way about her that inspires confidence. She is helpful and patient and truly cares about working to bring out the best in her students. I recommend 100%.

B
Bruce

Mari is an excellent and informed singer/ musician who I’ve performed with many times. She is also an excellent voice coach. Her professionalism and attention to detail are always self evident. I highly recommend her as both a performer and educator.

Interview with Mari

QUESTION 01 | 08
Depuis quand développez­-vous une passion pour la musique et plus particulièrement pour votre instrument de prédilection ?
Mari — My grandfather was a musician, and from my earliest memory, I knew I wanted to be a musician too. Hearing beautiful music, and particularly singing, made me feel so alive. My parents played a lot of Motown music, as well as classical music, punk music, top 40, and music from Latin America. I heard so many different kinds of voices, and I heard how strong and flexible the voice is. I fell in love with singing, and I'm still there today!
QUESTION 02 | 08
Quelle musique pouvez-vous écouter en boucle avec toujours le même plaisir (et sans devenir dingue) ?
Mari — I listen to almost every style of music, and I'm so glad about that. What I choose to listen to depends on my mood. Do I want to dance, or am I feeling introspective? Do I feel like listening to something that's current or am I nostalgic? There are so many ways that music can be great. It's really more about the moment!
QUESTION 03 | 08
Parlez-nous du cours le plus difficile ou étonnant que vous avez pu donner !
Mari — Singing is technically challenging, but there's also a mental side to it that people don't expect. It can feel vulnerable, and learning how to work through that is huge! My students come to me because they want to sing better, and yes, they sing so much better. They also learn about themselves, and find a new confidence through their singing challenges. It is really exciting to see!
QUESTION 04 | 08
D'après vous, quel est l'instrument le plus compliqué à maîtriser et pourquoi ?
Mari — The hardest instrument to master is the one you don't like! J Your curiosity, and your love for the instrument make the difference. When you love something, you will work at it, and you will have fun even with the challenges that come with it.
QUESTION 05 | 08
Quelles sont, pour vous, les clés de la réussite (hormis celles de Sol et de Fa) ?
Mari — Curiosity, courage, and consistency!!
QUESTION 06 | 08
Citez 3 musiciens avec lesquels vous rêveriez de faire un boeuf dans un bar à 2 h du mat et dites-nous pourquoi !
Mari — That is a really hard question!!! There are so many great musicians I would LOVE to play with, but this would be an interesting team:
Freddie Mercury, Miles Davis, and Bjork. They are so different from one another, have strong personalities, and are all amazing musicians. It would be an exciting show!
QUESTION 07 | 08
Une anecdote à raconter en rapport avec votre métier ou votre scolarité (et pas forcément la fiesta que vous avez faite suite à votre entrée au Conservatoire) ?
Mari — My voice teacher from Berklee was so wonderful and also very demanding. When we first met, he was playing all over the piano, leading me to sing high and low, fast and slow, soft and loud, staccato and legato. He looked at me and said, "You've got to have a strong mind. That is the first rule of singing. If you have that, you can do anything." In both my academic life, and my artistic career, it's been the most useful advice I've received. I was lucky enough to get it on the first day of school!
QUESTION 08 | 08
Quel est votre petite touche qui fait de vous un Superprof adoré par tous ses élèves ?
Mari — You may learn more from my student reviews, but I think it's that I really listen to, respect, and care about my students and their progress.
