Marissa Zagoudis (Piano, Voice, Music Technology Advisor)
Teaches private lessons on Mondays - Fridays

"My students and I become music detectives in class. We search for clues, such as symbols, title, and tempo, to play the "mystery" piece technically and musically to the best of one's ability. We look and listen for matching measures to "solve" the song more efficiently."

Marissa was born and raised in Western Springs, IL.  She attended St. Francis Xavier Grade School, Lyons Township High School, and North Central College.  Marissa was involved in music activities throughout her school career and was blessed to have studied under talented mentors.  She believes music has a unique ability to enrich people’s lives.  Marissa earned her Bachelor of Arts in Music Education and received her Type 10 Teaching Certificate from the Illinois State Board of Education in Spring 2010.  As an educator, Marissa hopes to inspire others to develop an appreciation for music and to strive to reach their musical potential.  She currently teaches beginner piano and voice lessons at Music Makers of Western Springs.
