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.
One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and response guaranteed. Mari will plan your first lesson with care.
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.
I offer a discount rate when a student buys a pack of 10 lessons.

The price for a single lesson is 70 € + 10 € for travel costs or 80 € inclusive
A pack of 10 classes is 750 € inclusive

A pack of 10 is 60 € per lesson or 600 € inclusive
I earned two BA degrees in Music and Modern Languages from Sarah Lawrence College in New York.
I am a Certified Somatic Voicework teacher.
I have significant training in Bodywork, Alexander Technique, Breathing Coordination, and Mindfulness Meditation.

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 !
Such a thoughtful student! Zoe has a lovely voice and a strong intention to sing! Zoe, thank you for your trust and work! :)
Perfect! Chaleureuse, authentique, souple et entière. Une pédagogie très efficace et une belle présence.
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 !
Perfect! Très bon premier cours avec Mari !
Mari met de suite à l'aise, c'est une excellente pédagogue et elle repère de suite quels sont les points à travailler ! Vous pouvez aller la voir les yeux fermés !
Vivement mon prochain cours !!!
Perfect! Mari est super précise et rassurante ! Je suis content de l’avoir rencontré pour bien travailler et chanter du mieux que je peux. À bientôt !
Je suis très contente de te donner cours ! On va libérer ta voix et explorer tous ses possibles ! A très vite !
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 !
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 ».
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!
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 !
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 !
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!
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 !
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!
Je travaille avec Mari depuis plusieurs mois et c'est vraiment un plaisir. Elle m'a vraiment aidé à améliorer ma voix de chant et de présentation en général. Elle est experte dans son domaine, très professionnelle et toujours à l'écoute- je la recommande vivement!!!
I have worked with Mari for several years and I highly recommend her! She's a dedicated and talented musician and educator.
I have had many piano teachers and Mari is definitely the best of them all. I have come a long way thanks to her. She is not only a great teacher, but also very patient and kind. Highly recommended!
Mari is an incredibly talented musician who is passionate about music and singing! I think she is a fantastic teacher and anyone who has the honor of learning and expressing themselves through vocal techniques with Mari will become a truly gifted singer.
I taught in the same school as Mari Rosa and I can attest to her being a great teacher. Her students loved working with her, and I enjoyed listening in on her lessons. She teaches with a joy and enthusiasm that is very special in connecting with students. I'd highly recommend her.
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.
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!
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%.
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.
