About Marta

Marta is a personal trainer, a musician, teacher and author. She loves to share her joy and excitement for life with others.

A fitness enthusiast, Marta has been working out regularly for many years, . She is aware of the need for people to keep in shape as they go through life to maintain their strength, flexibility and balance, and she wants to help. As a result, in 2018 Marta got her certification as a personal trainer  through the W.I.T.S. organization, a highly respected leader in the fitness industry. She works individually with clients in her private gym at her home in Stone Ridge, NY, as well as offering Zoom sessions to people wherever they live. She has posted many  minute-long videos on Facebook, YouTube and TikTok, titled A Minute with Marta, where she shows simple things to do every day.

As a musician, Marta plays piano and synthesizer on "Ascension," the 2013 album by Ra's Pyramid. This is available on Spotify by searching for her by name, since Spotify won't let music appear if the band name has an apostrophe! Collaborating with guitarist Larry Seyer, together they created music that takes the listener on a magical, musical journey to a land of exotic, mystical places. Ra's Pyramid is currently working on their second album. Marta is very excited to have this wonderful music be available to everyone. She also is the keyboardist for The Secret City Band and The Silver Spaceship.  In addition, she accompanies silent films at the Rosendale Theatre.

A dedicated and enthusiastic teacher, Marta gives lessons in popular singing, piano and composition  at her home in Stone Ridge, NY.. She speaks French and a little  Mandarin and Italian, and is fascinated by the ways in which people express themselves. She offers lessons in French, providing a comfortable and supportive environment for learning.

An author, in 2012 Marta released her first book "Dream, Believe, Create," about creating the life of your dreams. In 2016 she published a book about Robert Adsit, a very creative artist and musician who has had an enormous influence on her life and music. That book is entitled "The Art and Life of Robert J. Adsit." Both books are available on this site.
