Teaching beginners to virtuoso.
First and foremost I teach proper diaphragmatic breathing and vocal exercises to expand range and strength.
We then work on musical pieces and songs that the student is interested in learning and I will recommend pieces for the student that will be beneficial.. I have a varied style background from pop to Broadway, classical jazz and more.
Have been a professional singer for over 25 years.

About Mary M.

I am a graduate of Berklee College of Music. I started my music career in performance but have always taught lessons.
I owned my own teaching studio for ten years and have been teaching for over 20 years.
my approach to teaching is to customize the style of teaching to the students needs. I have taught people of all ages and believe reading music is the best way to learn to play independently.
I also believe that the joy of learning an instrument is a journey of experiencing the joy of self expression.
