Meet Marielle

Marielle Vientos started music lessons with Mason Music when she 12 years old. Now, at 15, she reflects on how she’s grown throughout her time in the studio.

“The teachers always take time to get to know me, even if I’m not their student. And for my teachers, they were patient with me and always encouraged me.”

Vientos expressed how each teacher has a genuine bond with all students—not just their own. The support she’s received throughout the past three years as a student has helped her in the growth and love for music.

“It’s not surface level. The teachers have a genuine care for their students. It’s definitely a community.”

Now taking lessons for bass guitar and voice, Vientos is one of many students who have been encouraged to grow by teachers at Mason Music. Her voice teacher Julianne Heany was just as excited to brag on Vientos and their time in the studio together.

“I watched Marielle go from not wanting to sing alone in the classroom to singing lead on “I Will Survive,” giving me chills and making me cry. That was the greatest moment.”

What makes Mason Music stand out?

The staff meets you where you are. (Mason Music)

Heany, a certified music therapist and Mason Music voice and piano teacher, has been with Mason Music for almost two years now and expressed her love for her career and working with students.

“Teaching others to process emotions through music while learning a new skill and growing their confidence has the potential to foster additional opportunities such as meeting new friends or joining a music camp.

Julianne Heany, instructor, Mason Music

It can be hard for a student to trust their teacher, or even commit to learning an instrument. Heany and other teachers at Mason Music recognize this and are committed to keeping the student’s interests in mind. All the more reason to try your hand at learning something new with Mason Music!

“Something I believe makes Mason Music a little bit different than other studios is we take into consideration the student’s preference. If they don’t enjoy the music they’re playing, they’re not going to enjoy practicing.”
