About the Instructor - Mae McLean
Classically-trained, Mae grew up in Marin and started studying piano at the age of 7 and flute at the age of 8, through formal lessons and participation in music festivals. In middle school and high school, she played piano in the Jazz Band and was first-chair flute in the advanced band. Continuing her music studies at the University of California, Davis, Mae graduated with a B.S. in Animal Science and Business Management and a Minor in Music. She has performed regularly as both a piano soloist and as an accompanist. She has performed with the College of Marin Symphony Orchestra and numerous chamber groups. In 2010, she began Marin Piano Studio in her living room with her beautiful 1926 Steinway grand piano and found the connection, wonder and sparkle in teaching something to others which she, herself, loves so much.
Being a mom to 3 kids radically informs her approach to teaching and presenting the Studio's curriculum. With her concept that "kids love to do what they think they do well" she and the other members of her caring, nurturing team dive deeply into empowering confidence and intentionally engaging each student in enchanting ways that can't be found elsewhere.
In her spare time, Mae enjoys learning dressage with her horse, Elegante, reading and participating in book clubs, baking, hiking with Oreo (her family's loving black and white cocker spaniel), and being a wife and mother.
Mae is a proud member of the following organizations:
* California Association of Professional Music Teachers
* Music Teacher's National Association
