Congratulations belong to Mary Koenig, Zagaria Vocal and Music Academy’s “Student of The Month of January, 2018”. Koenig is a senior at Boca Raton Community High School in Boca Raton, FL.
Mary recently recorded and mixed her first original song, “Love Hesitation” at Zagaria Vocal Academy’s recording studio under the direction of Jeffrey Zagaria. Her new song, ”Love Hesitation” was recently registered at the U.S. Copyright Office.
Koenig began studying voice with Jeffrey Zagaria in January of 2016. Since then, Mary’s voice has greatly improved in many vocal metrics including range, tone, breathing, stamina, pitch, and artistic expressiveness. She has focused on building her voice and finding her own natural singing style.
Mary auditioned for a singing position in her church choir. In a short time, she began singing solos due to her performance excellence. Now, one can find Mary regularly singing on Sundays at her church as a regularly featured soloist. Furthermore, she began writing songs under the tutelage of Zagaria. After writing and rewriting “Love Hesitation”, and other original songs, Mary has finalized her first release on January 21, 2018.
Mary’s plans include pursuing her singing and songwriting career beyond high school. She plans to attend Florida Atlantic University in the Fall of 2018. She is an AP student and has maintained an impressive 3.69 GPA and 4.9 HPA throughout high school. Mary has been very active in extracurricular activities including volunteer work, working as a hostess for local eateries, and being captain of her high school volleyball team two years in a row.
