"She has transformed a part of my musical world into something for which I am both eternally grateful and waiting for in our next Session."

"My decades-long musical history was moving toward something new - singer-songwriter-guitar performer. I needed help. Mary is shockingly amazing in all three, which says nothing for her piano and tech skills, which says nothing for her really beautiful ear and professional easy demeanor ... I can't recommend her enough." - Jessica V.

As a musician and an educator for nearly 25 years, I understand what it takes to create.

I know what the endless search for something to create feels like.

I know what a long-term creative block feels like.

"There is something about her ability to hear what I am doing, maybe to even hear merely what I intend, and boiling it down to workable and usable elements."

"I really very much appreciate Mary's lessons.  She not only makes the most of where I am musically and with my busy schedule, she always finds a slice of exactly what I need, a piece of what's usefully available. In that way Mary just amazes with her gifts and talents and good nature. So if I don't thank and recognize her enough, let me do it now. Thanks!" - Johnny G.

"I recommend Mary without qualification to anyone from the casual singer/strummer to the advanced musician or studio geek who wants to up their game to the next level."

"I came to Mary as a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter who wanted help with singing/vocals. A few things were apparent from the beginning: she is a creative, patient, yet demanding teacher with a razor-sharp ear and an endless bag of similes, metaphors, and visual and mental techniques to get across the point she's trying to explain (which is all aimed at coaxing the best out of you in each lesson). I've had many music teachers over the years, and it is rare to find one who combines vast knowledge of music theory and the fundamentals/techniques of their particular instrument with the ability to translate and teach all of this effectively. Mary is exactly this type of teacher. I also appreciate that her passion and enthusiasm for music and creativity practically oozes out of her pores, and in the year+ that we've been working together she's challenged me to not only improve my vocals but develop my songwriting skills using Logic." - Julia J.

"Mary made me feel comfortable to open up and share my deepest thoughts, paving the way for my new self to emerge. The experience was definitely therapeutic and I know what I must do now."

"I was feeling a little lost at a stage of my life where my business was successful, but other parts of my life didn't seem to be on track, making it difficult for me to enjoy my success. I wasn't sure what it was, so I decided to work with Mary to give me more direction or help me to find the root issue. I figured, why not? I always had a clear direction in my business life but never really thought about making that same effort for my personal life until now. After talking to Mary, I feel clear about my needs. I'm happier even after one session, knowing I have a plan now. I definitely recommend seeing Mary if you're in need of direction, motivation, or clarity in your life. A few hours can change a lot and make you realize what improvements may need to be made. Worth every penny!" - Magda Ryczko, Founder and Director,

"The decision to begin piano with Mary was a catalyst for many life-changing decisions in the months to follow. It truly had a snowball effect. I have decided to leave my 9-5 job and embark on a journey to Europe to do more soul-searching for what I really want in my life. I've experienced a shift in mindset and am learning to trust and listen to my intuition and my heart. I've gone from thinking about life in black and white, to a life full of vibrant possibilities. I am no longer a passenger in my life. I am the driver."

"I met Mary during a time when I was experiencing a major transition in my life. Music was something I had always wanted to pursue as an adult but never allowed myself the time. With having only spent limited time in my adolescence in high school choir, it seemed the learning curve would be steep and therefore I sat on the idea for years.

At the beginning of the year, piano and singing lessons with Mary were the start of a major shift in my life in deciding to pursue activities and experiences that fulfilled me regardless of the limitations, or fear rather, that had held me back.

In just a few months with Mary's help, I was singing confidently while playing the piano. Music lessons were a time throughout my week that gave me clarity and the ability to be in the moment. Something I had been striving to achieve for quite some time." - Jill Angellotti, sing loud and always be the driver


"In a few months I have gone from absolutely zilch experience in music, to preparing to sing in a NYC jazz club, reading sheet music, and being able to play beginner to intermediate piano pieces, all thanks to Mary's help and encouragement."

"I wanted to take music lessons as a kid but never really did, so when I recently felt the urge again I decided to jump right in... and I am thrilled I now work with such an enthusiastic, encouraging, and all around wonderful teacher that Mary is. My sessions with her are energizing and fun. Even when working through tough sections it is always enjoyable and I come out of each lesson feeling brighter and more confident of my musical ability. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a coach." - Michelle Wernick, Technical Product Manager, Sotheby's

"Each session was rigorous: no cakewalk, she expected me to steadily move forward and improve, which I did."

"As somebody with performance experience, I worked with Mary for both custom feedback on my unique style and for the general voice training that I'd never had." - Mel C.

"She coached me through a few pieces I had to prepare for an audition. She helped me stay disciplined and positive. With her help, I totally nailed it."

"I started training with Mary about a year ago to get my voice back in shape. After my first lesson with her, I felt so happy and inspired. Her positive and passionate energy is so powerful. I've learned so much, and as we continue, my voice keeps getting stronger and my range is expanding. I sincerely appreciate her enthusiasm and vibrant spirit along with her support and encouragement. Mary's an all around unique, talented and genuine person that I'm lucky to have stumbled upon." - Laura B.

"She has helped me gain the skills and confidence to use my own tools and start creating my own music!"

Mary has been an excellent voice coach! She is very supportive, patient and enjoyable to learn from. Not only has she taught me about the technical aspects of voice, but she has exceeded way beyond that. Mary has helped me with singing and music in a more experiential way. She has provided me with her expertise on lyrical writing as well as performing. I continue to learn and understand my strengths and weaknesses vocally alongside Mary and she is ready and willing to take on every challenge along the way. I would recommend her highly to anyone who is interested in taking voice lessons!" - Erin F.

"Mary is an excellent communicator, with a great sense for analogies and concrete descriptions for abstract concepts (esp. crucial for things like singing)."

"I went through 4 voice teachers here in NYC before settling on Mary - been taking vocal training with her for about a year and half now and it's been worth every penny. She's a gifted vocalist, having been classically trained with an opera and jazz background, but more than that - she has the ability to enhance someone else's sense of style and natural voice. She is of course also an amazing human all around, with a great attitude, style, and general "lust for life." I highly recommend Mary as a coach.” - Justine H.

"She works with me to build my voice and doesn't push a style or direction. Her descriptions give me directions on what to think and how to feel when I sing."

"I began taking lessons with Mary after I heard her sing. Besides having a terrific voice I really love how effortless she makes singing look. I've been taking lessons with her for about a month and she's been helping me connect the dots. I appreciate her method. I look forward to the coming months!" - Kate R.

"Mary's teaching and personal style also gave me a massive boost in confidence - I had taken singing lessons more on a whim as something to try, but Mary allowed me to see that I have a voice and can develop it."

"An excellent experience. It's hard to describe the enjoyment and progress I enjoyed with Mary. She is such a thoroughly engaged and skilled teacher. In my first lesson I felt like I improved exponentially, and every lesson thereafter has left me significantly improved. I am continuing lessons and hope to always improve. I really can't recommend Mary's lessons enough - and she is a lovely person to know, very funny and creative with her teaching and extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of music. What a great experience!” - Alice R.

"I found she had good knowledge of her tools and how to apply them to whatever it was that I was up against."

"I had a great time working with Mary. I always felt I had walked out of a session one step closer to my goals and moving in the right direction.” - Vanessa M.


“Our sessions are fun, encouraging, thorough, and unique!"

"Incredibly inspiring teacher! I love her method of teaching and feel I have learned an awful lot already and I have just begun. I look forward to working with Mary and incorporating new techniques into my style. I'm so happy I stumbled upon her!” - Mary K.

“I am much more confident in my voice since working with Mary and believe I have improved overall as a musician."

"Mary’s qualifications as a musician/vocalist are quite astounding. Her qualities has a teacher in my opinion stretch way beyond her musical resume. Her level of patience is quite extraordinary. She has an extremely keen ear and a fine attention to detail. This gives her the ability to spot errors in form and offer the necessary corrections. She is an extremely warm person who is easy to get along with and who expresses deep care for the improvement of her students. As someone with some level of musical experience, I can confidently recommend her for anyone from a beginner to an advanced level.” - Chelsea L.

"A truly remarkable experience. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to improve their singing voice or their ability to play the piano."

"Working with Mary was amazing. She was my first singing instructor ever and she left an impact that will last me for the rest of my life. She was thorough in all of our lessons and was always honest with me. If I wasn't doing my best, she'd let me know what was wrong and how to fix it." - Alyssa J.

"As a voice student who has had considerable instruction in the past, I have begun to address some of the performance and production questions that have lingered in my past for many years."

"I am so thrilled to be studying with Mary Alouette, as her musical ear, performance technique tips and visual cues are simply superb. Mary truly excels at her ability to use visualization techniques to inform on where vocal placements are most effectively produced in the head to aid the studying singer to effectively render correct placement and utilize one's vocal space more effectively. She also excels at being able to hear slight differences in vocal energy and knowing when the support inside the body has relaxed a tad too much. Finally, I am learning techniques to modulate my sound and more effectively vary my vocal production and color. BRAVO MARY!” - Anna C.


I have 24 years of professional performing experience and 11 years of teaching experience. I've performed at the Apollo Theater's National Tour, The Rainbow Room at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, The Kennedy Center, Blues Alley, the Music Center at Strathmore, the National Anthem for the Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals baseball teams and DC United soccer team dozens of times, had a lead role on the Wii videogame Boogie Superstar, worked with Maestro Placido Domingo, sang with the New York Philharmonic at Carnegie Hall, performed in countless professional musical theater productions, and worked as an audio engineer in a New York City music studio that produces platinum artists. I've studied and performed opera in the U.S.A., Canada, Austria, and Italy. I've won songwriting awards, artist residencies, and music grants. I've taught songwriting workshops to adults, kids, and senior citizens; they've ranged from first-time songwriters to experienced professionals. One of my favorite memories was staying in a Gypsy caravan in France and studying and performing Gypsy jazz with some of the world's finest. I've released four albums of my original music and featured on others' recordings.

I've taken unforgettable risks, and they've always paid off. I chased an opportunity one summer to work on a vineyard and live in the historic Château de Paraza in the south of FranceI followed my dream of being a singer in New York City and moved here knowing one person. I persevered after seven dodged interviews and landed the audio internship of my dreams, where I got to produce other artists during the day while studying audio engineering by night. In that internship, I also got to sit in on sessions with platinum artists who are now household names. I stayed in a French Gypsy caravan at Samois sur Seine and sang and played Gypsy jazz music with the greats from sun-up to sun-up. I created a month-long artist retreat in Havana, Cuba to study & compose music, paint, write, and record my fifth album.

I've been trained by the best! I've invested in my own private coaching for business and life. My mentors are Kirk Imamura, President of Avatar Studios; Gina Devee of the Divine Living Academy; Beth Harper of Seriously Successful Entrepreneurs; and Emily Williams of I Heart My Life; GRAMMY-Award winning mentors Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer the Music Center at Strathmore's Artist in Residence Program. I've studied with a slew of music teachers and coaches including Blue Note singer Jeremiah Abiah and got my Bachelors of Music in singing at the Schulich School of Music at McGill University.

We dive deep, focusing on genuine growth and transformation. I will help you reveal the very core interpretations and beliefs that support each and every aspect of your life remaining unfulfilled. We'll work through your future aspirations and take on practices that exercise, strengthen and expand your capacity to manifest your desires.

Taking music lessons requires you to practice being accountable for what occurs in your life. It distinguishes you from the interpretations you has about life in general, yourself in particular, and about the specific outcome you are wanting. Mentorship empowers you to shift those interpretations which no longer serve you. It also empowers you to practice new ways of being that align you with your desires in order to reach your highest potential. It is transformational in nature because it focuses on the states of being that generate actions, which either move you closer to or further away from your desired outcomes. Shifting how you are being, rather than what you are doing, will create transformation, because the way you are being is transferable to every other aspect of your life. You'll transform your perspectives and shift your paradigms, which allows an expanded repertoire of possibilities to exist.
