How she’ll jam with you: “My classical training gave me a love for studying a piece deeply and with effort and patience,” say Marie. “However, it also taught me what I would have liked to learn differently - to play with my ears first, before reading!” In addition to JWY, Marie also teaches for Alliance Francaise music camps and CITG French nursery rhymes program.
