About Molly M.

I am the teacher for singers who don't want a teacher to be teacher-y (but who still want to learn to sing good and stuff). I can teach you online (but you'll miss out on my aging, sassy cats) I want you to laugh as you learn, and love love love the results you’ll get . I understand what what it's REALLY about- expression and fun, not judgement . Vocal exploration that's 100% customized . Have you been told you are too old to sing? Not talented? Tone deaf?

I have been a instrumentalist for the past 8 years and recently wanted to improve upon my vocal skills, within the first one hour lesson with Molly I could not only hear but feel the difference in my voice and tonality. I've had a lot of private music teachers and she was was by the the most energetic and fun teacher to work with. She gave me skills to take back and work on, I look forward to working with Molly again!

Molly is the best improv instructor I have worked with and in the top 1% of all teachers I've ever had. She transformed me from a nervous, struggling improv actor to someone who's much more confident in my skills. Molly is very efficient, knows how to focus you on what's important, and is super friendly and encouraging to boot. I highly recommend Molly to anyone looking to improve their improv acting skills.
