In 1999 and 2000, she apprenticed at Ann Reinking’s Broadway Theatre Project, hailed by Playbill as “the world’s most prestigious musical theatre arts education program for high school and college students.” There, she trained with such notables as Julie Andrews, Gwen Verdon, and Ben Vereen.
In the summer of 2008, Molly toured Italy with a choir that performed at the Duomo in Milan, St. Mark’s Basilica in Venice, and St. Peter’s Basilica and the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City. The tour concluded with a performance for Pope Benedict XVI.
At the age of 18, she began writing and recording her own music and transitioned from musical theatre and choral singing to pop music.
More recently, Molly attended the 2015 NYU Summer Vocal Pedagogy Intensive, where she worked with the famous vocal research scientist Johan Sundberg, along with Broadway coaches Joan Lader and Brian Gill. In 2016, she completed a course in Estill Voice.
Molly’s voice-teaching style is influenced by a number of sources, including classical training, Speech Level Singing, and the wonderful Estill Voice Training system. In spite of her extensive technical expertise, she doesn’t believe there is a single ideal approach to teaching voice. She believes every voice and personality should be treated differently, and that lessons should be based on the student’s current abilities and ultimate aspirations. Working with each student individually, Molly teaches them healthy singing habits and helps them hone their style. Her Just Sing method is based on the premise that there’s no one-style-fits-all approach to voice.
After approximately a decade of teaching students all over Orange County, you can find her students on Broadway; in movies and television (including the Disney Channel and Nickelodeon); in pop, punk, alternative, country, folk, and metal bands; studying voice in prestigious programs, including Berklee School of Music and USC Thornton; in the All American Boys Chorus and Orange County Children’s Chorus; and in art schools, including Orange County School of the Arts (OCSA), Academy of the Arts (APA), and South Orange County School of the Arts (SOCSA).
