Marya Lowry

Actor, Voice Teacher, Coach
Lives in Boston, MA, USA
Roy Hart Voice Teacher since 2010

The Roy Hart approach offers each person a generous invitation to explore, express and celebrate the fullness of their humanity through the embodied voice and its fullest potential. Through sounding and singing we magnify our vision and assumptions about life and art, and open new pathways to expand vocally, physically, emotionally, and artistically. The foundation of my teaching is a commitment to nonjudgmental engagement with each student as I support their artistic vision, personal journey, and pace of learning with deep listening, open hearted acceptance, and a trust in the individual and their unique process.
