Marissa is an excellent teacher. She has been teaching my eleven-year-old who is just starting out with voice (and was feeling very nervous). Marissa did a great job of helping her feel at ease, and working with her. She says that Marissa is always kind and friendly and she's learning a lot.

I had never taken a voice lesson in my life prior to working with Marissa. Wow, what a fantastic instructor. She has taught me more than I ever thought was possible, and she is also such a genuine and supportive teacher. The absolute best.
