MaryKate Cary is a classically trained vocalist with studies in gospel, jazz, and pop. In the fall of 2022, she earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in General Music along with special studies in Music Entrepreneurship from Florida State University. Her passion is to empower youth through music and community support.
Over the years, music engulfed MaryKate inside and outside the classroom. Since the age of thirteen, she has been a part of many choral ensembles, musical theater ensembles, vocal recitals, and solo performance opportunities in Noirmoutier, France. In Northwest Florida, she was actively engaged for six years managing clubs and programs for academia and four years as the Director of Choreography for musical theater programs. MaryKate says, “I have always enjoyed the thrill of performing and also find voice teaching just as exciting and rewarding.” She loves sharing the joyful experience of music with others.
Singing the music she enjoys has always been a safe place for her. Through her trials or tribulations, music was there. Music is medicine for the soul. She knows the healing elements of music and desires to enrich the soul of others with the power of music. Her mindful positivity and uplifting personality is refreshing. MaryKate says, “I highly value spirituality, joy, and community.”
Recently, MaryKate has joined Ray and Lisa Cyr at Studio 237 Music Lessons in Santa Rosa Beach to provide Voice Lessons for students of all ages and experience. Her diverse background and experience has provided enough knowledge to enable one to improve their vocal ability and sound better after a season of instructions. MaryKate is not only a gifted performer, she is a teacher who understands the training each individual will need and is excited to provide it at the Studio.
