What’s your favorite part about teaching/coaching/doing your job? There is nothing more thrilling to me as a voice teacher, than seeing a student expressing an idea that is authentic to them as a person, while feeling confident to use all of the colors of their singing voice as a vehicle to tell their own story.
“I have been taking lessons with Molly for three years. I was confidence impaired and wanted to face my demons head on. I chose the right person to work with. My confidence has gone through the roof. I am now a diva. This has been better than therapy. I am looking forward to singing harmony, and recording on Garage Band. With Molly by my side, I know I can do this.”
