Hi, I am Mary, professional flutist in San Mateo, California. I teach all ages and levels of flute and piccolo.
I studied flute performance at Foothill College, UCLA, and California State University East Bay. My first performing employment was with the San Francisco Opera Orchestra, and I have been performing with opera, symphony, ballet, musical theater and recording orchestras ever since.
My teacher played piccolo with the San Francisco Symphony for many years. I love playing and teaching the piccolo, and in fact hold that chair in some of the orchestras in which I play.
My philosophy of teaching is that wherever the student is in terms of background or goals, we start there and proceed toward realizing the student’s maximum potential. This includes having the most fun possible!
All of the members of my family are musicians. My husband is a percussionist with several orchestras. Our oldest son is a percussion music major in college, and our younger son is a cellist in his high school orchestra.
I currently play for multiple orchestras. Hi, I am Mary, professional flutist in San Mateo, California. I teach all ages and levels of flute and piccolo.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I perform flute (and/or piccolo) in many orchestras in the Bay Area, including Opera San Jose, Saint Peters Chamber Orchestra, San Francisco Merola Opera Orchestra, Lamplighers Musical Theater, American Musical Theater of San Jose, Nederlander Broadway Productions, Santa Cruz Symphony, Ballet San Jose, Final Fantasty XI Concert Orchestra, and Western Opera Theater.
