Teacher with over 10 years experience. Both in-person & remote lessons available. All ages welcome!
Hi there! Thank you for considering me in your search for a voice instructor. As a voice teacher and vocal coach, I sincerely belief that anyone who possesses the true desire and drive can learn to sing and use their voice to it's fullest potential. Vocal technique, especially for singing, isn't something you must simply be born with, it is something you can learn! I provide a safe, encouraging, and instructive space in which to try new things so you can discover your own unique voice and talent. With proper training and practice, you will discover that you really can do it! If you have the passion and the drive to stick to it and work hard, you can sing the music you’ve always dreamed of. Broadway and Musical Theater are special loves of mine and I have been both performing and teaching students of all ages for more than 10 years. I have a BA in Music and Vocal Performance with a background in Vocal Pedagogy and Classical Technique. I offer competitive pricing and both in-person as well as remote private lessons so you can learn from the comfort and safety of your own home! I love helping students grow, overcome their own vocal challenges, and reach their singing goals in a way that is fun, empowering, affirming, and inspiring. I love how excited my students get every time they make a new breakthrough and find they can now do with ease something they may have thought was impossible for them before! I have worked with students of all ages at a variety of skill levels. Everything from absolute beginners to advanced performers who are looking to improve their technique and vocal health. My sweet spot is any student who needs a little help finding their musical confidence, building good vocal habits, and/or infusing their natural love of singing with the technique needed to overcome vocal challenges and take them to the next level. I also have extensive, multi-genre performance experience as a soloist and collaborative vocalist in musical theater, rock and jazz bands, a capella singing groups, and choral music. Therefore, I understand the needs and challenges of the performer and am able to equip students with the tools they need to meet and sustain their performance goals.

Mary is friendly and a kind singing teacher. She helped me prepare for an audition. Since I have never done the musical theater audition, I didn’t know where to start. She suggested me couple of songs and helped me decide which one to sing. As I practice with her, I could tell the improvement quickly and even though I was nervous, she encouraged me a lot. I’m so grateful that I got to practice with her.

So far I’ve spent about 5 weeks at Schmidt Vocal Studios and I absolutely love my lessons. I was completely new to voice lessons and didn’t know what I was getting myself into, but Mary Helen does such an amazing job easing you in and explaining everything. She truly takes her time with you and checks in every step of the way!
