My children have been with Mary for years. Mary is very nurturing and extremely talented, my kids absolutely love her. They have both grown tremendously and are very confident about singing and acting. She has the kids really think about what they are doing and why. I feel this has helped them overall as young individuals.

I have always suffered from a speech impediment since childhood. With Mary, i have notice significant changes in the quality of my voice due to periodic recordings that we review on a monthly basis. She is a blessing in helping me land acting work because the stress of my speech had been greatly reduced and I'm not as nervous as I used to be.

Out of all the teachers I've had in my lifetime, Mary is one of the best! She teaches singing from a physiological base. This preserves the voice and ensures that one's technique is solid so one doesn't ever damage one's voice. As an older student, this is so very important. The voice changes as one ages and can sound shaky or wobbly. With Mary's training this doesn't have to happen. I know how to control it to make it smooth and pleasant sounding. I would highly recommend Mary as a teacher. Her own technique is rock solid and she knows her business inside and out.
