Madelynn is a pianist and oboist in the Quad City area. Growing up in Moline, she studied both instruments and was involved in many extracurriculars for each one. When it came to university, she knew she wanted to continue studying both instruments with the same intensity. Mady is currently completing her degree at the University of Iowa where, along with major-level lessons in both instruments, she has enjoyed being involved in chamber music and large ensembles. Outside of the university setting, Mady has supplemented her studies with intensive summer music festivals in Iowa, Colorado, Tennessee, and Italy. Her most recent teachers include Dr. Rene Lecuona (piano) and Dr. Courtney Miller (oboe).
Mady has previously taught private lessons in Iowa City for three years and understands how music education is an individual journey for each student. She is committed to fostering a supportive and inspiring learning environment where students can flourish as a musician and as an individual. Some of the core principles that guide her teaching include creating individual learning experiences, building strong foundations of theory, history, and technique, supporting creativity, and cultivating discipline, resilience, and confidence.
