Marjorie BaskervilleMarjorie Baskerville has a deep love of music, and learned to sing at an early age, old tales of drunken tomfoolery and heartache from her father, which did not impress her grade 4 elementary teacher! As a singer/songwriter and performer, Marjorie believes strongly that everyone has a voice, however small or large, harmonic or dissonant, it deserves to be expressed and heard. Marjorie has a BA special in Sociology, studied voice (Jazz) 4 years at the Victoria Conservatory of Music with Gergana Velinova, and recently completed 3 years of study with Bisia Belina and Margot Johnson at the SoundBody Studio and is a certified SoundBody instructor.  Marjorie teaches private voice lessons, conducts group workshops and leads a weekly drop in Vocal improv class in Sooke BC called The VIBE. 

Classes with Marjorie include: VoiceWorks V.I.B.E. See Schedule & Calendar for course times and dates.
