Instructor

Genevieve MacRae, B.Mus, Registered Music Teacher (NB)

Genevieve started her love affair with music at a young age.  Piano lessons from a young age, dance classes, school choirs and school band – if it involved music, she was in.  Upon graduating from Fredericton High School, and receiving a scholarship award from the band department, she went on to study flute at Mount Allison University.  She currently runs MacRae Musical Arts Studio based in Fredericton, which offers private and group lessons for voice and a variety of instruments and teaches school band at the Elementary and Middle school levels.


Performing continues to play important role in Genevieve's life.  From singing lead vocals in rock groups to playing piccolo with the Fredericton Symphony Orchestra, she is a versatile musician who is willing to try anything once.  She regularly derives pleasure from playing in pit orchestras for the local musical theatre scene and although is usually recruited to play piano or flute, she has also covered alto flute, piccolo, guitar, clarinet and keyboards.


Genevieve is a member of the NB Registered Music Teacher's Association, the Fredericton Music Teachers Association and Music New Brunswick.
