Marie Robertson currently resides in her hometown Auburn, AL where she works diligently to stay active in Auburn’s music community. She is an Applied Brass Instructor at Huntingdon College in Montgomery, AL and also teaches Middle School and High School brass lessons in the Auburn/Opelika area. Robertson began pursuing her music career in Auburn and received a Bachelor of Arts in Music from Auburn University in 2009. She then went on to pursue a Master of Music in Euphonium Performance from the University of Colorado at Boulder, where she spent three years immersing herself in the Boulder-Denver music scenes.
Robertson has dedicated many of her musical talents to her passion as a singer/songwriter and keyboard player. She began studying classical piano as her first instrument when she was eight years old but it wasn’t until her early twenties that she began writing songs for piano and voice. Since then, she has had the opportunity to collaborate, perform, and record with many groups in Denver, Atlanta, and Auburn, AL as a singer/songwriter, keyboardist, and trombone and euphonium player. She has helped release two full-length albums and a number of EP’s and singles. Robertson continues to collaborate with musicians throughout the Southeast and is also working towards her own solo career as a singer, songwriter and performer.
