After studying under Sandrine François at the Strasbourg Conservatory, Marie Puzzuoli got her Musical Study Diploma from the Paris Conservatory "with flying colours" in Michel Rousseau's class.

She also takes part in international competitions and won first prize in the piccolo at the International Young Flutist Competition and first prize in the flute at the Young Talent Competition.

She regularly performs with various orchestras including the Ensemble Via Nova, Wallonia Chamber Orchestra, Occitania Chamber Orchestra, Deutsche Philharmonie Orchester, Mulhouse Symphony Orchestra, Strasbourg Philharmonic Orchestra and Paris Chamber Orchestra.
She also performs as a flute and piccolo soloist with a variety of ensembles such as the Kehler Kammer Orchester and Strasbourg Philharmonic Orchestra.
