About Mary Ann G.

I have been teaching for over 20 years. I am a singer-songwriter-guitarist and performer. A native born Southern Californian, her life focus has always been music, from her beginnings as a little girl in the church choir to playing guitar in her first all girl band by age 12. She received her formal classical vocal training with Pollyanne Baxter at Cal State Los Angeles, where she received her BA in Music. Over the years she has performed her original music in coffee houses, and other venues. I have performed for Weddings, Church Services and Musicals. My latest endeavor is Ruth in The Pirates of Penzance! I also love writing music and working with collaborating with others.

CD. Her influences included, Denyce Graves, Jessye Norman, Ella Fitzgerald,The Beatles, Eric Clapton, Sarah McLaughlan, Eva Cassidy, Jane Monheit, and Led Zeppelin.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have been teaching for a long time now and enjoy working with people. I structure the lessons to fit my student's needs and interests. Everyone learns differently and I like to make the lessons enjoyable while developing a solid foundation. I teach note-reading and incorporate music that the student wants to play or sing. I am very patient and teach all levels and ages.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard, Computer, Guitar, Uke, Amplifier, Microphone, Guitar and more. Everything you need to get started.

*** Specialties ***
Singing Lessons: Everyone can sing!!! I will help you develop your technique and expand your range, pitch and confidence! You will have a fun time learning about your instrument. I teach Classical, Blues, Jazz, Rock, Country, Musical Theater, and Pop styles, even though I am Classically trained. The technique will crossover into all styles.

Song-writing: I will be happy to help you structure and develop your art. It's story telling at it's finest.

Guitar: Have fun learning songs you like and get a great foundation too. I teach finger picking, tab, theory, scales, note-reading along with music you like.

Mary Ann is awesome! She is a great instructor, stays focused and fits a ton of instruction in each lesson. I've learned so much more in 5 lessons than I learned in 2 years trying to teach myself. I highly recommend her!

I appreciate taking voice lessons with Mary Ann. She is helping me get my singing voice back in shape, by improving my breath support, and balancing my vocal tone in the high, medium and low ranges.

I took voice lessons from Mary Ann at Groovin' On Music from 2007-2009, and they were worth every penny. I was a background singer in a worship team at church and I was shy to sing lead because I didn't know how to sing vibrato or navigate the falsetto break in my range. I had always wanted to take lessons as a kid but never was able to until adulthood. I was a bit nervous when I first came in, but Mary Ann put me at ease. She is a beautiful spirit who inspired me, challenged me, and made me laugh. She is not only amazingly talented and experienced, but she genuinely loves people and makes the lessons an enjoyable experience. Mary Ann definitely took my voice to the next level. Many people have commented on the difference in my voice and my confidence level before and after the lessons. I now sing lead, am at home with my vibrato and know how to use all the notes in my range. I would absolutely recommend Mary Ann as a voice coach for people of all ages!

Mary Ann is an unassuming personable teacher. She is very quick to access your abilities to determine a basis on which to start your learning. Structured but fun and very effective. I learned to read music in 4 lessons. I recommend her 100% if you want to reach your goals….

Mary Ann is very thorough and thoughtful with her teaching. She pushes when needed and gives warm encouragement when the student feels incapable or has hit a block. She is very talented and has much experience to use as a teacher. I highly recommend her if you wish to excel.
