Renee Maranan is a singer-songwriter, vocal instructor, and life coach for performers and creative professionals. Like Chelsea, she is a Mentor level certified instructor and Ambassador for the Institute for Vocal Advancement (IVA). She is also certified as a life coach with the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching.
She has over 20 years of experience as a vocal instructor, and over 5 years of experience mentoring and training other IVA vocal instructors from all over the world. She has given private lessons and master classes at vocal instructor conferences in Edinburgh, Scotland (2018), Vienna, Austria (2019), and online.
Renee has experience in many genres of music, but her personal specialty is in the pop/singer-songwriter genre. She loves working with students from all skill levels and backgrounds, and especially those who are aspiring to be professional performers, recording artists, or songwriters.
Besides vocal technique, Renee also supports students in their songwriting, lyric writing, and song interpretation. She also uses her training as a life coach to help students grow in other areas surrounding performance, such as confidence-building, goal-setting, moving through creative blocks, and more.
When Renee isn’t teaching or coaching, she’s usually trying to keep up with her toddler, Olalla (oh-LAH-ya), who is absolutely giving her a run for her money.
