Candice Marie - Voice, Piano
Candice Marie specializes in pop & theatre music, with a foundation in classical training and technique. She brings a performance-based approach to her lessons- to develop not only musicianship, but great stage presence, and confidence for every student. Candice instructs vocal and piano students throughout the tri-state area, while sharing the secrets of the stage that work for many famous superstars! She believes all great talent can flourish with hard work, perseverance, and the right direction. Her vast experience onstage - either playing an instrument, or acting singing, and dancing - has excited her to give the gift back to aspiring performers of all ages.
Candice Marie now performs with her own project, LEGACY- the tri-state region's hottest party band! She's also a very proud wife and new mother to her daughter, Elly Francis. Although she resides in Pennsylvania- Candice was born and raised in South Jersey, where she considers "the stage" her home. She has graced hundreds of stages down the entire East Coast, and even performed alongside big acts including Pat Benatar, Eddie Money, and CCR (Creedence Clearwater Revival). In her early years, Candice’s extensive training in acting, singing, and dance, helped her land work with a professional theatre company. But she truly found her niche in the pop spotlight with legendary voice coach, Sal Dupree. Candice continues to work as a freelance studio vocalist, affiliated with Jive and Columbia Records, as well as Time Warner Cable and Comcast Networks. She enjoys continuing to study advanced piano and theory.
