Mara Flannery was born and raised in the Pittsburgh area, and has been involved in music based activities since writing her first song- “Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah Bonessa” (we still don’t know what it means to this day). She became involved in musical theater in middle school and high school, and decided to pursue music as a career. She attended Slippery Rock University as a Voice major where she discovered Music Therapy. This new career path joined her two loves, music and helping others. She graduated from Slippery Rock University in 2017, and completed her music therapy internship at Johns Hopkin’s All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida in 2018. She is now a Board-Certified Music Therapist (MT-BC). When Mara moved back to the Pittsburgh area, she interviewed at Sing Sing Sing! and immediately felt at home. She identifies very strongly with Sing Sing Sing’s message that music and singing are for everyone, and that it‘s purpose is to bring joy, expression, and release into our lives. In private lessons and classes, Mara hopes to foster an atmosphere of acceptance so that students feel that they can truly be themselves, and find their own unique sound. Since joining the Sing Sing Sing! family, Mara has helped the company set up a non-profit called Sing Sing Give! that provides free music activities and Music Therapy to groups in the Pittsburgh area. Mara is very happy to have just celebrated her two year anniversary with Sing Sing Sing! and is excited to help spread it‘s message around the world. Keep singing!
