What do you love about music?

I love that music is an expression for all of us, whether you play it, write it, or just listen to it. It is the ultimate language, the one that every person can understand and enjoy. There is also no definite answer with music. From person to person, it can mean something different and how it makes us feel.

A musician from day one, Marnée (Marn-ay) began playing guitar at the age of six and was performing onstage by the age of nine. At the age of 11, Marnee was featured, along with John Mellencamp and Stephen Stills, at the Grand Opening Gala of Lucas Oil Stadium. By 12, she started showcasing for major labels such as Atlantic and Sony Records, and by 14 she had opened for the likes of Sheryl Crow, Pat Benatar, Chris Issak, Rick Springfield and many others. Marnée's love and passion for her craft has driven her to teach, so everyone may experience the joy she feels when playing and performing music.
