Instructor Mary McGinty - Cello
Mary E. McGinty hails from the Chicago area. With a degree from University of Illinois and 12 years as a professional symphony cellist, one of her primary joys is working to bring the magic of music making to new players. She performs in the Chicago area.
Abiding along with her deep love of classical music she listens especially to Celtic music, classical guitar and a smattering of virtually everything else. Her tastes are wide-ranging, and she used to perform with a “jazz-fusion” original music group.
A new-found excitement in music arranging has enabled her to put together numerous ensemble pieces (especially cello duets) for use by her students. Recently she has made "He's a Pirate" (from Pirates of the Caribbean) and the theme from "Game of Thrones" available even to her youngest students. They LOVE it!
Mary and husband Jim live in Warrenville They have two adult children, Alana and Jamie, of whom they are very proud.
