*Singer and Performer Testimonials*
I have been working with Marcy for a year now, and the vocal growth has been phenomenal! Marcy's ability to encourage the artist to sing from a truthful place is uncanny. Her style of teaching puts you at ease allowing for total vocal freedom which creates a effortless, natural sound. My range and entire voice has grown — from low belt to high legit soprano, the voice is one fluid instrument, no more guessing in the middle voice. The best part is applying her technique to any material. There is such a variety of styles these days in musical theater — Marcy and I flip from Gilbert and Sullivan to rock and roll in one coaching with ease. She's the best out there and great for all levels.
Leah Riggs, Actress
I have studied voice technique with Marcy: breath control, range, speech patterns, musical and dramatic interpretation. I have found her to be kind, considerate and sensitive to my needs. I enthusiastically recommend her classes.
Avrom Berel, Actor
Marcy is a wonderful teacher! My voice feels stronger, clearer, and more expressive after every lesson. I am singing Beethoven with a chorus for the first time in my life, and Marcy has helped me understand and grapple with the technical challenges.
Marcy is more than a voice teacher. She is an all-around artist, engaged in a vigorous exploration of her own expression, and her experience informs every session. She is an inspiring person to know: full of enthusiasm, spiritual insight, and emotional sensitivity. Marcy is a pillar of my artistic life.
Scott Blumenthal, Actor
The skills Marcy teaches are technically specific yet very freeing, and she's truly gifted when it comes to tailoring these skills to individual needs. Her approach is a fully integrated one which I find myself using to great effectiveness not only on stage, but also in my daily life. I'm always looking forward to the next class!
Gin Hammond, Actress
I use my voice for re-creations of Hollywood legends and for sound effects that go to a place of wonder and entertainment. Marcy provides me with the vocal strength and enhancement that I need to achieve my results. I feel more confident in my day-to-day speaking...and get the desired response from how I speak to people!
Michael McQuary The New Man of 1000 Faces
Marcy is a joyous voice teacher. My children, 13 and 10, have grown under her nurturing and coaching. She is positive and encouraging. Marcy has a knack for kids - she helps them focus and opens their voices with simple exercises they can practice on their own. Their range and clarity have improved but more importantly their self-confidence and self-esteem continue to grow.

"When Marcy coaches musicians in my music theater pieces, she looks deeply, penetrating to the heart of what the person is trying to express. She analyzes the performance, uncovering precisely the nature of what is impeding success. Then, she clearly communicates the steps necessary for improvement. I've seen her do this again and again with great effectiveness."

David M, Sony artist with Tru Voices
Vocal training helps me use all the tools at my disposal to win a sale. How you get your message across is often as important as what you say. My training has helped me to relax before important communications and speak without the nervous constraints that often compromise effectiveness. Your teaching style offers a structured curriculum with exercises that work equally well at home and during the session.
