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.+ Read More
I studied with Mary for years and I can truly say I have learned so much. I am a confident and powerful singer because of her teaching!!
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.+ Read More
