"Mary was an ideal teacher for me. I’m a singer songwriter who came to her as I was working on an album and preparing to do some live gigs and it really made a big difference. She doesn’t have a set agenda but responded to what I needed. I feel that Mary really “got” my music and what I was trying to say. That was key for me – not to change was I was doing but to make it work better to communicate my material.
She has a really good ear and we quickly were able to zero in on some of my tendencies and habits – to be more aware, in control and conscious. I can truly say I use everything I got from Mary in those sessions – good warm-ups, a more relaxed singing approach and a better connection between my vocal production and the words of my songs."
- Barry Oreck, singer & songwriter
"The decision to begin piano with Mary was a catalyst for many life-changing decisions in the months to follow. It truly had a snowball effect. I have decided to leave my 9-5 job and embark on a journey to Europe to do more soul-searching for what I really want in my life. I've experienced a shift in mindset and am learning to trust and listen to my intuition and my heart. I've gone from thinking about life in black and white, to a life full of vibrant possibilities. I am no longer a passenger in my life. I am the driver.
I met Mary during a time when I was experiencing a major transition in my life. Music was something I had always wanted to pursue as an adult but never allowed myself the time. With having only spent limited time in my adolescence in high school choir, it seemed the learning curve would be steep and therefore I sat on the idea for years.
At the beginning of the year, piano and singing lessons with Mary were the start of a major shift in my life in deciding to pursue activities and experiences that fulfilled me regardless of the limitations, or fear rather, that had held me back.
In just a few months with Mary's help, I was singing confidently while playing the piano. Music lessons were a time throughout my week that gave me clarity and the ability to be in the moment... something I had been striving to achieve for quite some time." - Jill A.
“I went through 4 voice teachers here in NYC before settling on Mary - been taking vocal training with her for about a year and half now and it's been worth every penny. Mary is an excellent communicator, with a great sense for analogies and concrete descriptions for abstract concepts (esp. crucial for things like singing). She's a gifted vocalist, having been classically trained with an opera and jazz background, but more than that - she has the ability to enhance someone else's sense of style and natural voice. She is of course also an amazing human all around, with a great attitude, style, and general "lust for life." I highly recommend Mary as a vocal coach.” - Justin H.
“I am so thrilled to be studying with Mary Alouette, as her musical ear, performance technique tips and visual cueing are simply superb. As a voice student who has had considerable instruction in the past, I have begun to address some of the performance and production questions that have lingered in my past for many years. Mary truly excels at her ability to use visualization techniques to inform on where vocal placements are most effectively produced in the head to aid the studying singer to effectively render correct placement and utilize one's vocal space more effectively. She also excels at being able to hear slight differences in vocal energy and knowing when the support inside the body has relaxed a tad too much. Finally, I am learning techniques to modulate my sound and more effectively vary my vocal production and color. BRAVO MARY!” - Ted C.
