Meet Marilee



Welcome. I’m glad you’ve found me!

My passion is mentoring up-and-coming artists and coaching talented singers and I’ve been doing so for over 15 years.  In the last several years I have expanded my reach by teaching online. It’s awesome and I absolutely love it.  I have discovered so many talented singers and songwriters outside of Los Angeles.  For many years I only taught from my studio and this change has really been exciting for me.  

I completely understand what my students go through because I’ve been there myself. I was an up-and-coming singer-songwriter back in the day, living in New York and Los Angeles. I found out the hard way, that succeeding in the music industry is impossible to do alone.

I am committed to helping my students stop spinning their wheels and get them on track to set them up to succeed. Having a coach makes a world of difference. My job is to guide and support artists so they don’t get lost in the process and give up. There’s so much that isn’t shared online and it would be impossible to know it all.

I have worked with top vocal coaches, professional singers, hit songwriters and pro musicians, and spent over 15 years in recording studios in New York and LA, writing and producing songs.  I have studied voice with the best of the best, including  Ron Anderson, who is a celeb vocal coach and has been one of the vocal coaches on American Idol.  I also received a dance scholarship at Phil Black’s Studio in Manhattan, which was given to JLo the previous year. 

During the last 15 years as a vocal coach, I have explored which teaching techniques work best. I am a great vocal mechanic and I know how to fix most vocal issues pretty quickly.  I want my students to grow vocally and see long-term results. There is no reason to feel stressed out when taking voice lessons, so I make sure my students and I are on the same page and that I understand the way they work and what their goals are. 

I love helping students peel back the layers of self-doubt, face their personal challenges, learn how to tap into their creative flow, and push their perceived limitations so they can become a pro and achieve their greatness.  Most artists need help getting out of their own way so they can break through their self-limiting patterns. I know this to be true from personal experience. 🙂  Guidance and a great team are necessary. 



Over time, I’ve learned that each student is unique in their talent, as well as how and what they need to learn. I teach organically, yet in a structured way and cater to each student, depending on skill level and personal goals. Everything I do while teaching has a reason. Consistency is key.

My students who are striving to be professional singers and recording artists eventually learn that voice lessons are a spiritual experience that mirrors their personal lives. It’s really so much more than a voice lesson.

I look forward to helping you fulfill your goals as a singer and songwriter, and being part of your personal journey to success.
