- Tell me about some of your current students.
I am very pleased that this term one of my grade 5 vocal students received a high distinction in her performance exam. Having battled with some technical issues before coming to me which inhibited her vocal practice to the point of being unable to sing in certain areas of her voice at all, she has come out the other side a shining performer. I'm very proud of her!

Marianne has been teaching my 6 year old daughter singing for 6 months. Mia adores Marianne and thoroughly enjoys lessons, her skills with children are exemplary. This summer, Marianne gave group workshops, lasting 45 mins with children between 3-6 yrs. We were amazed at how much the children picked up in such little time. I would recommend Marianne to any parent looking to enhance their child's musical abilities and confident to say that she would be able to hone in and enhance their natural capability.
