I have gone through seven different voice coaches with backgrounds in classical and broadway training for the past twelve years. I used to compete in national singing competitions, perform on stage, play occasional gigs, and perform with a theatre company. My primary issue has always been my inability to use my diaphragm correctly. However, I have also struggled with placement, breathing techniques, and a lack of support when singing. By working with Marilee for only eight weeks, I have corrected all of these issues and gained confidence in my ability to sing again. Her lessons have given me the foundations necessary to sing without tension and learn how to use my voice correctly. I have even discovered more of my range than I thought I had, and I am learning to sing in registers of my voice that I was previously unaware of.

I left my last voice teacher because I’d felt we’d hit a ceiling of her being able to teach me more advanced and the more technical side of singing. I am serious about being in the music industry, so I did some research and found Marilee. Marilee quickly corrected my vocal issues within weeks. Now my vocal range has grown faster than I thought was possible and high notes are effortless, no toll on my throat. I have now corrected some old habits and changed my muscle memory. She pushed me to get out and gig around town with another student of hers, to gain confidence in my performance. Now I’m writing songs. She really knows what she’s doing, and I couldn’t imagine where I would be with my development as an artist if I hadn’t found her.


Marilee is a fabulous teacher. I had a good background in choral performance, and she was able to take my solo vocal performance to another level. She really helped me open up and start to come into my potential as a vocalist. I highly recommend her.


Marilee is a kind, caring and attentive vocal teacher with an extensive background in vocal training and songwriting. I have been working with her for over a year now and I have seen tremendous results, both as a singer and a songwriter.


My daughter is a long-time student in the dramatic arts but was self-conscious of her singing voice. She has been with Marilee for over a year now and her self-confidence and vocal improvement is amazing! We are so grateful for Marilee’s kind, compassionate and enthusiastic teaching as well as her knowledge and experience.

Thank you, Marilee!


Marilee has been working with our daughter for almost two years, and we absolutely love her! We’ve seen so much improvement and couldn’t be happier. Marilee is professional, encouraging, and such a great coach. I’m so glad we found her!! I would recommend her to anyone!


You will never listen to a song the same way again after taking Marilee’s songwriting course.  If you are an experienced longtime songwriter, you will write songs with a different understanding, vibe, perspective, and possibly a new and different formula and strategy for songwriting after taking this course.  If you are taking this course to learn how to write your first song, you couldn’t be starting from a better place with this songwriting course. 

No matter what genre of music you want to write,  there is a formula, a pattern, and science behind songwriting that is taught in this course to help you build and construct a well-written song.  There is a combination of so much that goes into writing a song. Marilee breaks it all down for you and teaches how to add the magic ingredient of your own uniqueness to add to the science of songwriting. I can’t wait to write a new song after just completing Marilee’s songwriting course.  She makes her constructed learning process an absolute blast.

Before I joined Marilee’s songwriting course, I was a self-taught song writer who struggled to find a clear and consistent way to produce music that was simple, yet fun and interesting to listen to. Marilee was able to break down the basics of pop song writing as well as creating practices that made it much easier to understand what it was specifically that I needed to improve upon. She taught me incredibly useful information on melodies, production, and lyrics while providing historical and cultural backgrounds about the art of music. This all curated together into an inspiring class that made me motivated to continue songwriting and singing as a career. I would definitely recommend this class whether you are a complete beginner or if you’re an experienced songwriter who is looking to improve their music.

I have been songwriting for myself as an artist for several years. I didn’t realize there were basic things I was missing when it came to writing catchy songs until I took this course.  Marilee’s approach breaks it all down in a way that is easy to understand and listening to song after song, from different genres and time periods, really helped me hear things in a new way. The homework pushed me out of my comfort zone and ultimately I became a better songwriter. It’s funny now that I know the information, I listen to hit songs differently.
