She became involved in musical theater in middle school and high school, and decided to pursue music as a career.

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.
