Marie's Bio

Marie has several years of experience teaching students ranging from 6th graders to undergraduates. As the daughter of a seasoned teacher, Marie is all about encouraging her students to become life-long learners. “I want to give back to the next generation in the way that my mentors and teachers gave back to me,” she says. She certainly practices what she preaches, as she received her doctorate of music in late 2020 from Eastman School of Music! She currently teaches French horn at a private liberal arts college and performs with the Colby Symphony Orchestra as well as the Colby Wind Ensemble.

Marie’s style is centered around communication. “I am constantly in dialogue with my students to encourage critical thinking, work together towards solutions, and promote analysis for self-driven learning,” she says. “My goal is to give my students the tools to effectively teach themselves while providing constructive guidance throughout the process,” she adds. She helps students find their own distinct ways to answers, which challenges them to acknowledge and honor their unique processes. “My students learn how to learn in ways that will last forever, not for one specific assignment or test.”

Marie was a research fellow while pursuing her bachelor’s in music at Utah State University, spearheading projects about preparing successful orchestral auditions and program management for performers. She was also invited to work behind the scenes at a massive classical music festival in Suffolk, England. While earning her master’s from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, she performed at several summer music festivals around the country. Her writing has been published in the official journal of the International Horn Society.

Marie is an avid fan of Marvel stories and proudly displays a LEGO helicarrier in her living room. She’s also excited to do anything outdoors; from hiking and camping to kayaking, snowboarding, and swimming—she loves being active in nature!
