About Marcie Monaco Music Studio
Marcie Monaco is an active performer with a diverse background as a soloist, chamber musician, and musical theatre flutist. Most recently, she was a member of the Island Chamber Players in Honolulu, a member and soloist of the Kansas City Flute Choir, and flutist with the Stuttgart Theatre Center Orchestra in Germany. She also dabbles in double bass and played big band with the Austin Community Stage Ensemble in Texas.
As an approachable teacher, tenacious troubleshooter, and an indomitable encourager who sets and maintains high expectations, Marcie has experience connecting to students of all ages and skill levels. She can empathize with beginners struggling to learn basic fundamentals, performance techniques, and band and orchestra skills, and she is able to relate to advanced students who are preparing for contests and competitive audition processes. She is acquainted with teaching children as young as 4 or 5, and is also very fond of tutoring senior citizens.
Marcie is an accomplished musician, a committed educator and frequent performer who attends music education and flute conferences annually to stay on top of new repertoire, curricula, techniques, software, and teaching styles. She is devoted to developing accuracy in rhythm and pitch, purity in tone, superb breath-support, dynamic posture, and excellent music-reading ability. Marcie is knowledgeable in complementary fields of Music Theory, Music History, and Composition.
Marcie and her husband, Joe, live a crazy gypsy military lifestyle as they traipse around the globe with their 8 noisy-but-loveable children and giant canine in tow. In her spare time, Marcie helps run a non-profit organization called Zeteo Mission Partners (www.zeteomissionpartners.org) that provides funding to a home in the Philippines that cares for children who have been abandoned by their families or have been rescued from trafficking situations. Marcie also enjoys dance, yoga, photography, science, calligraphy, genealogy, traveling, education, sewing, cooking, baking, and eating.
