Marion is an amazing voice teacher. She has a clear and comprehensive knowledge of techniques used in all styles of singing - placement, tone, support; how to improve pitch and facility. Her teaching style is very observant and informing - she clearly notes areas that can be improved and provides a road map to achieve that improvement. She understands where a student is in their journey and meets the student there - helping them move forward at their own best pace, to achieve their goals as singers.

She has an extensive understanding of jazz styles and improvisation, as well as pop and theater styles. She is able to clearly illuminate technical and stylistic issues and explain and demonstrate the way to move forward, allowing the student to see notable improvement in their skills, if they put in the practice time!

My 17-year old daughter has been taking piano lessons with Marion for over a year. We’ve always felt our daughter had innate musical talent but were hesitant to begin lessons due to her learning disabilities. Marion is the perfect teacher for her. She has shown great patience with her and has adjusted her teaching to suit the learning disabilities of my daughter. Marion knows when to push and when to back off, allowing my daughter to progress at her own pace. We love seeing our daughter enjoy new confidence in herself and her abilities.

My daughter who is 13 has been taking lessons with Marion Powers for over 2 years. She truly loves Marion’s patient teaching skills and her company. Marion has a very peaceful, funny, yet persistent way of moving my daughter forward with her lessons. With Marion being able to have lessons in our house it takes away the “hurry up get in the car” stress. We couldn’t ask for a better set up. Not once have I heard I don’t want to continue. Her advancement has been considerable.

Both my children 12 and 9 have trained with Marion for a year now with incredible success. They have begun a musical transformation with weekly lessons, daily practice and innovative practice apps that they love to use. The integration of available technology in note memorization has allowed for a positive learning experience that makes Mom happy! In home lessons are another invaluable level of convenience for the busiest of families.
