About Debra Marsch

I teach both classical and commercial voice. My favorite commercial styles are: soul, R&B, funk jazz and classic rock. I love to block musical theatre scenes and opera arias because I like to image the character from a psychological perspective. I love a good story, and I feel so lucky that I get to be immersed in beautiful poetry and lyrics every day. 

I'm crazy for critters and have 2 dogs, 1 cat and 1 fish. My husband and I have boy-girl twins who are high school Seniors. We love our little family.

Character is everything and not just for acting. I strive to live a life of love and high integrity in my walk with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. 

Come sing with me :^)
