I've been writing music since I was in elementary school after all the best songs come after a struggle. My struggle was against a flesh eating disease that almost took my life at 2 in a half years old. I've been singing since I was cleared of having vocal nodules on my vocal cords. Currently I'm studying at Corning Community College taking Voice lessons along with piano on top of all of that I'm also in the Vocal performing ensemble. The teacher when ever she has a second year perform she has us tell our story, but this year I didn't tell my story she told it for me. Her definition of me is that "Music is not something that mary does but rather its who she is. It's her heartbeat".
