About Marissa Green

Marissa Green has had a strong passion and talent for music since the
age of 5. Her musicality was also acknowledged at this age when she
began piano lessons in Orlando, Florida. Marissa has had a wide range
and spectrum of music teachers, but as a student of Mrs. Nancy
Shackelford during her teen years, Marissa received three consecutive
years of superior ratings from the National Guild of Piano
Teachers/American College of Musicians. Mrs. Shackelford really pushed
Marissa when she needed to, and held back in order to help her realize
her potential. Marissa even realized that because of music, her studies
were better(especially Math and Science). Throughout the ages of 5-15,
Marissa's musical training also included vocal lessons. Marissa was
accompanying her high school musicals, performing in church, and
participating in small gigs anychance that she could.

Because of her technicality and discipline, Mrs. Shackelford also
encouraged Marissa to continue her studies postsecondary. At Stetson
University, she was a scholarship student of the internationally
renowned pianist Michael Rickman. Recognized for her artistic
achievements, she was a William E. Duckwitz Talent Scholar and a
Stetson Piano Scholar. As a soloist, Mrs. Green has performed on and
off the Stetson campus and for special events throughout Central
Florida. She has also performed in masterclasses including one with the
late distinguished concert pianist Richard Cass, and Dr. Kevin Orr of
University of Florida. Her repertoire includes works by Schumann,
Schubert, Shostakovich, Debussy, Beethoven, Bach, Haydn,
Mendelssohn, and Chopin.

As a collaborative artist, Marissa Green has appeared in recitals with
fellow vocalists, various instrumentalists, and served as accompanist for
Spruce Creek Presbyterian Church in Port Orange, Florida. She was a
member of the prominent Stetson Chorale, and performed with them at
the March 2010 Southern Division American Choral Directors
Association (ACDA) convention in Memphis, Tennessee. Marissa even
had the opportunity to accompany her own choir at one of their yearend
Stetson University performances. Marissa has experience with acting,
vocal coaching, singing broadway music, and musical theater per her
performance in the Stetson University hosted musical "Zanna Don't!" in
2009. In May 2010, Marissa received her Bachelor of Music and Business
Administration degree from Stetson University.

Since her graduation, she has been offering her services to students of
all ages by traveling to their homes for lessons. Marissa is a great
teacher. She helps students realize their potential and discover a love
and space for music in their hearts while maintaining professionalism.
Her goal is to learn about her students, their expectations and goals,
strengths and weaknesses, and help them develop a plan to get them
where they need to be. She ensures all of her students have proper
training. Her lessons are always fun, engaging, and special for children
so they can certainly develop a need for music in their daily lives.
