Molly Holleran teaches individual voice lessons for all skill levels, adolescent to adult, at her full-time independent studio in Richland, Washington.
Molly Holleran's life-long love of singing began to grow in her high school choir (hooray for arts in public education!) with director Roger Tweiten in River Falls, Wisconsin. She received bachelor's degrees in vocal performance and theatre from Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin. Her master's degree in vocal performance is from the University of Arizona. Her former voice teachers include Tamara Fudge, Joanne Bozeman, Catherine Caccavallo, Grayson Hirst, Korby Myrick, and Kari Ragan, and she currently studies with Reginald Unterseher. She is a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing, and the Music Teachers National Association.
Since moving to the Tri-Cities in 2008, Molly has been active as a performer with Mid-Columbia Musical Theatre (favorite roles include Marian in The Music Man, Maria in The Sound of Music, and Cinderella in Into the Woods), CBC Summer Showcase (favorite roles include Betty in White Christmas, Christine in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Kitty in The Drowsy Chaperone, and Sister Robert Anne in Nunsense), Richland Players, Mid-Columbia Mastersingers, and as a concert soloist with the Mid-Columbia Symphony, Washington Idaho Symphony, Oregon East Symphony and Walla Walla Symphony.
In addition to sharing her love of vocal music through performing and teaching, Molly practices yoga and tap dancing, she is an Anglophile who loves British books and TV shows, she takes a daily walk along the beautiful Columbia River near her home, she never misses doing the New York Times crossword puzzle, she wishes she had a greener thumb, and can't wait for her next trip to Ireland or Italy. She volunteers as a graphic and web designer, and as a reader for the visually impaired. She lives in Richland with her partner Justin Raffa and their elderly long-haired dachshund Coda.
