“Mary is an incredibly gifted teacher who is focused on the individual needs and goals of her students. When I came to Mary to sharpen my vocal skills, she was diligent about using creative techniques to bring out the best in my voice. Through the time we worked together, I competed in the Apollo Theatre’s ‘Making a Star’ competition in New York City and I won!! Whether you’re just beginning, have experience, or just want to achieve more vocally, I highly recommend Mary!”

"I wrote songs as a hobby when I was in my late teens and early 20s. I came back to it much later on with Mary’s help. The list goes on in terms of what she’s able to bring to the table with her mentorship and instruction.

It’s been an incredible experience. Every day we’re learning something new, it’s relaxed, there’s a tremendous amount of support, it’s a very positive environment… Just listening to the songs come to life has just been absolutely inspirational.
