Maren came to me in the fall of 2021 and I was so excited to work with someone who possesses such talent and maturity. She and I share many connections in people including her former guitar teacher Kevin Koehler and with music. We both love singer-songwriters and I I enjoyed hearing music from the Lumineers, Phoebe Bridgers, Caamp, and Hozier through her.
I love the gentle breathiness of her voice and her ability to convey emotions. She is a talented guitarist able to accompany herself in thoughtful ways that don’t overpower her singing. It has been a joy to get to know her and hear her each week and I can’t wait to see how she succeeds in life. She is off to Colorado State in the fall to study Psychology. Here is her self-written bio:
Maren has loved music her whole life and was inspired at a young age to become a performer. She formally began lessons in ukulele at the age of 13 and began guitar lessons the following year. Some accomplishments to note include performing in numerous school talent shows as well as the Webster Groves Art Fair. This year she began studying with Miss Natalie and performed in the 2021 winter recital. Maren graduated from Nerinx Hall and will be attending college at Colorado State in the fall of 2022 studying psychology.
