Mariah Gillespie has been playing the piano since age 5 and the harp since age 10. She studied music performance and musicology at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
While Mariah was completing her undergraduate degree at U of M, she fell in love with teaching when she met her first student, Sarah Cattell, from Ann Arbor, Michigan. When she moved to Australia, she continued to teach with Yamaha Music for 2 years while completing her masters degree and working full time in marketing. She moved to California in early 2013 and worked for Qualcomm whilst continuing to teach music on the side. Finally, in early 2014, her pianistic passions persuaded her to pursue a full time teaching career, and she's been living life to the fullest ever since. A member of the Amateur Pianists Society of San Diego, Mariah enjoys performing in recitals, learning about early childhood education, and volunteering with the San Diego Symphony Orchestra.
Mariah teaches exclusively in-home piano lessons in Coronado, California.
