that you can rely on under any circumstance?

The Vocal Psychology® coaching program

The Vocal Psychology® program is a private online mentorship
of 44 sessions in 12 months,
that will help you sing like a professional
and build up the confidence to perform at the level you want.

This might sound crazy,
but 99% of all the challenges you face as a singer
have an emotional source.

(Yup, even your TECHNICAL challenges, such as mixed voice)

Muscles react to our thoughts & beliefs… Self-limiting beliefs create negative tension
(‘I can’t do it’, ‘that note is too high’, ‘I’m embarrassed’, etc).

In order to use the voice and the body in the most complete and powerful way,
singers need to optimize their thoughts: adopt an empowering mindset and positive self-talk.

This will encourage the body to become a more resonant space that is free of tension,
finally able to APPLY healthy vocal technique &
produce a warm, clear, intentional sound,
allowing the singer to successfully channel and convey emotions.

We are here to turn singers into confident performers.

You’ll learn absolutely everything you need to know and do
to sing with your best voice,

and perform at your absolute full potential.

Success Stories

KELLY

When I started the Vocal Psychology program, I had a complete lack of confidence that I could ever be a solo artist. I felt like I didn’t belong on stage, even though that’s where I wholeheartedly wanted to be. Now, I perform regularly (all over the world!), signed with a record label (currently recording my second EP!), and…I finally feel AMAZING on stage. Maru has such a kind and generous approach to coaching that I value highly. She has always seen the best in me and helped me to find it for myself.

BARBARA, mother of KATYA

“Our daughter is a strong actress, model, and pianist…but what she really wants to do is sing. She has a sweet voice with beautiful pitch, but lacks the confidence to perform. In her time with Maru, she’s learning to “feel” the music, use more space (both physically and emotionally), and develop her innate talents. Maru knows how to bring the fire out of a developing artist. What a gift!”

Esther - Online Singing Lessons LA

“To me, the best part about Maru’s coachings was how spirited she remained from the first lesson on. Each session, she was keen on teaching me new things in a way that worked best for me. Besides being very educational, the sessions were always so much fun. Maru is an incredibly cheerful, enthusiastic coach, who is very fun to work with!”

“My vocal coach Maru is very inspiring and an amazing singer. She’s sweet and patient and knows a lot about singing skills and the practical tools to get better. Maru is not only focused on talent, but she also understands the longing for exploring your personal voice without fear. Thank you Maru, you sure changed my negative thinking about my personal voice into a fun joyful exploring experience.”

Is This You?

– You know you have potential as a singer, but you are not quite sure how to make the most of your gifts

– You sometimes find it embarrassing to call yourself a singer and wonder if you belong on stage
(even when you’re a professional performer & people tell you you’re amazing)

– When you have regular gigs, you feel tension in your throat
as if you’ve been straining too much

– There are technical things you haven’t quite mastered yet
(mixed voice, breath control, belt notes, runs, etc)

– You are not showing the world ALL that you’re capable of:
you’re not performing as regularly as you like,
you’re not getting the fee you’d like,
you’re not playing with musicians yet,
you’re not recording your songs,
you’re not singing loud & proud the way you know you could… (yet), etc.

– You compare yourself to other artists and feel like you don’t measure up

Insecurities are holding you back, and you tend to beat yourself up over it

– You don’t feel 100% confident about your voice & your performance,
and sometimes you even question if you have what it takes at all…

 

….but on a deep level you *just* feel:
‘THIS IS WHAT I AM MEANT TO DO’

If the statements above describe YOU….
The Vocal Psychology® program is the perfect solution for you.

I seem to have a breakthrough every time we meet. It’s very exciting to feel such rapid progress. I’m so happy I signed up with you; I wasn’t sure it would be worth the money, but it has exceeded my best expectations! You are awesome Maru; keep doing you!!

TIFFANI, mother of RACHEL

“Maru has been a trusted partner in our daughter’s life and career. What sets Maru apart is that she genuinely cares on a personal level. Her strength is that she’s able to perfectly balance both the professional side (perfecting vocal technique and getting the highest quality performances possible) with the emotional side (dealing with the complexities of being a teenage girl in a complicated world). She manages both – very important – aspects of Rachel’s life extremely well. By coaching Rachel in channeling her emotions through singing, she has pushed her to completely new levels in terms of vocal performance. Through working with her, we’ve gotten private auditions for America’s Got Talent, and caught the interest of some truly big industry players. Maru really helps our daughter deliver when it counts and when the pressure is on. We couldn’t have gotten where we are without Maru!”

“Maruja is a very likeable person, with perfect hearing when it comes to what you are physically doing when you sing. She really understands how the voice works and through thoroughly listening to your voice she gives you feedback that is useful, understandable and just what you need. She helps you to get the most out of your talent. Going step by step she will guide and lead you to becoming a great singer and feel comfortable and happy with your own instrument. She helps you breathe the right way, loosen up tension in the wrong places and use the correct muscles to make some real noise! Having Maruja as a teacher is not only fun, but you will also truly learn something valuable ;-)”

Maruja as a person is kind, friendly, attentive and a great listener. Personal traits that obviously make her a great teacher. She pushed me to levels I didn’t know I could reach…. technical levels, but also the emotional and spiritual side of what it means to sing. She explains the technical side with humor, patience and great concrete visual steps. Maruja always hears the person, knows what is going on, and has the expertise to do something with the information. Her ear is always sensitive, leaving me stunned at times, surprised at her knowledge and empathy, I always feel safe to push myself, and BE myself, knowing her guidance will keep me on track. She is an inspiring lady.

“The most precious and the most important thing that Maruja has to offer (besides her knowledge on vocal technique , of course!) is a very safe environment and the feeling you can trust her. This is so incredibly important when you are doing something as vulnerable as learning how to sing better! She is supportive, understanding and really tunes into you so she can provide exactly what you need. Besides this, she is also cheerful and clearly enjoys what she does, and she is incredibly gifted at connecting with people. I don’t know many people that have such an open and loving attitude towards others. Because of all this, she is more than ‘just’ a vocal coach,, she touches on deeper levels. You will get to know yourself better, and that will help you express yourself vocally.”
