  • "MaryAnne is more than just an acting and singing coach. She is your friend, your guide, your cheerleader and your life coach. Her acting philosophies are her life philosophies, as is the way she helps you gain access to your true voice, cutting out the blocks and revealing who you are underneath. When I first came to her, I had an opinion about my voice, how it sounded, how I wanted it to sound and it was initially very confronting to put all that aside and look further. MaryAnne said that if I trusted it, all the parts I loved would still be there to call on, when I needed them but for now it was about finding my authentic voice and connecting to that. The rest took care of itself."

  • "I began lessons with MaryAnne (Mac) nearly a year ago and I’m amazed at the success she has helped me achieve in such a short time!  I’d had singing lessons before with other teachers and had found them fairly ineffective.  
In addition to the remarkable work MaryAnne has done with me from a singing perspective, her acting coaching and guidance has helped me through a number of auditions, with the result that I am now studying at one of the top performing arts academies. MaryAnne’s approach to acting inspired me to find the honesty in my performance and connect with it on a level I hadn’t achieved before. She also helped me to hone my skills in developing material appropriate for these drama school auditions and interviews. Aside from being a superb singing and acting teacher, MaryAnne is extremely supportive and an endless source of knowledge for anyone who is creatively inclined."

  • "MaryAnne, (Mac) is an obvious rare talent, when you team that up with some of Melbourne's best musicians it’s a pretty flawless combination... I couldn’t more highly recommend the band."

  • "The Mac Project have played at a number of our events and each time we could not have been happier… I would and do recommend The Mac Project in a heartbeat!"
