Helping musicians, artists, and other creatives formulate the life and career they desire through healthy living, mindfulness, and entrepreneurship.

Meet Marianne

Life has taught me that there is more than one path to being a successful, happy, and healthy musician. Let me help you or your students attain your dreams, expand your vision of who you are and who you could be, while exploring the mental and physical health techniques that will keep you practicing your craft joyfully for years to come. I can think of nothing more rewarding than helping you create an authentic version of your career in an ever-changing arts landscape.

“Marianne has consistently provided unprecedented understanding of nutrition, health, and how it’s all connected in both a professional and personable manner.  I have struggled with GI issues and migraines while on tour for the past six years.  My daily schedule is extremely busy and I usually do not return home for 6 months or more at a time. She worked with me over Zoom, taking into account my strange schedule, stress load, lack of free time, and oftentimes no available fridge to create the best personalized plan possible. Thanks to Marianne, my mental and physical health has greatly improved!”

I leverage my 30+ years of teaching and performing experience, as well as my work as a health and wellness coach, to help your students develop skills that will enable them to be well-rounded and well-centered musicians.
