Hello. This is my story.

My name is Maria Finale. I am a vocalist with over 40 years of experience in the entertainment business. I hold a Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education, with over 12 years of teaching experience, that includes Behavioral Therapy; teaching children on the Spectrum. I display exceptional observational skills in ABA that lead to the implementation of set skills.  My approach to teaching children includes “learning through play”, my passion for music, combined with my Wellness training, teaching the whole child, mind body and spirit. Being that I am a Reiki I & II, and sound therapy practitioner, I am able to implement a very unique style of teaching that facilitates learning in a fun and organic manner, using music as the catalyst.  I am a private vocal coach, and within the past 6 years I was the music director for The Young Singers of The Palm Beaches after school choir consisting of 26 children ages 5- 12, at Sacred Heart Catholic School (2015-2018) where I taught Kindergarten for two years, and led the “Cherub Choir.” I provided the same music service, after school vocal lessons, at Delmar Arts Academy in Ft. Lauderdale where I was the lead Pre-k Teacher for 2 years. Aside from teaching I continue to perform on weekends, and provide healing and sound therapy for cancer patients.
