Mary began her musical training in Westlock, AB at a very early age by exploring the many sounds on her parents’ pump organ. After everyone’s ears stopped ringing, they enrolled her in piano lessons where she progressed enthusiastically, venturing into the realm of RCM. She spent her teenage years learning to play by ear and singing in church, as well as dabbling in other instruments including guitar and drums. Her love of music led her to Grant MacEwan University where she graduated in 2008 with a Diploma in Vocal Performance, studying many different styles of music.
Mary has a passion to give to others the things she has learned. She has been teaching vocals and piano to people of all ages for the last 10 years, and recently enjoyed teaching in an after-school program at Master’s Academy in Calgary, AB.
Her specialties include songwriting, music theory and playing by ear.
