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 at San Jose State, and our younger son is a cellist and cello teacher.

I am always performing in fun and beautiful productions- please see
