    I love working with Mara! She is very friendly and easy to talk to, which creates a great environment for lessons. She also is patient and works to bring out the best qualities in my voice!

    Mara was incredibly supportive, welcoming, and encouraging. I am new to singing and was intimidated at first, but she made me feel comfortable from the start. Wonderfully talented and a great teacher!

About this pro

My personal performance experiences as a professional singer and actor continually help me develop new methods to coach students on ways to give their own performances spark and life, as well as to help students combat stage fright and performance anxiety. My classical training and technical base combined with the musical education and exposure to an incredibly wide variety of styles at Berklee College of Music has provided me with a well rounded teaching philosophy for healthy singing in styles ranging from Pop, Jazz, R&B and Country, to Rock, Motown, Soul, Blues, and Musical Theater. I welcome all ages and all levels: my students have ranged from professional singer/songwriters and performers with Broadway and National Tour credits to absolute beginners who have just always wanted to learn how to sing, and have varied in age from six to sixty years old. I have been honored to be voted Best Voice Lessons of Thumbtack two years in a row for both 2015 and 2016. I love sharing a passion for music with my students and helping them grow to be the best singers and performers that they can be. There is nothing more rewarding to me than helping a student realize their full potential and break through a barrier to accomplish something they otherwise never thought they could!

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      Standard lesson pricing is $50 per 30 minute lesson, $60 per 45 minute lesson, or $80 per 1 hour lesson. Payment is accepted by cash, check or Venmo. Multiple location options are available.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      I like to take a few minutes to chat with new students to learn more about them and their vocal goals, as well as any prior training/musical experience. Then we will get straight to work! Lessons are highly tailored to each individual based on their level and needs, but the general structure consists of a quick stretch, followed by breathing exercises, a solid vocal warm-up and technical exercises, ear training, and work on songs and building repertoire. All styles of music are welcome.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I hold a Bachelor of Music degree in Professional Music: Vocal Performance (summa cum laude) from Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA and am a graduate of the One Year Acting Conservatory at T. Schreiber Studio for Film & Theatre in NYC. I continue to take voice lessons privately and am a member of the Actors' Equity Association.
