Mary knows a lot about the science of technique, and not only can she tell you why or how you sound the way you do, but she also balances that info with kindness and heart. She is graceful and sweet, instantly putting you at ease.
Mary was encouraging and made me feel safe to sing (and good about the sound I was producing!) while still offering exercises and ways to improve what I was doing.
She was patient and incredibly helpful with addressing the areas of my voice that need work and coming up with exercises to target those issues. She helps focus on the techniques and interpretations that will best serve the performance/acting of the song.
