Hi, I am Mary Hargrove, flutist and flute teacher in San Mateo, California. I perform with orchestras all over the bay area. I coach my students to audition for every opportunity to advance in their flute playing, and currently have nine students in the Peninsula Youth Orchestra program.
I am the flute instructor at College of San Mateo. I studied flute performance at UCLA, California State University East Bay and Foothill College.
My primary teacher was the piccolo player with the San Francisco Symphony. I love teaching the piccolo and hold that chair in some of the orchestras in which I play.
All of the members of my family are musicians. My husband is a percussionist with Symphony Silicon Valley and many other orchestras. Our oldest son is a percussion music major in college, and our younger son is a cellist and cello teacher.
I am always performing in fun and beautiful productions- please see
“Current Performances” for details!
