MUSIC COORDINATOR | VOICE | PIANO
As a child, Mairead was heavily involved in children’s theater, which later led her to school arts programs. In high school, she was involved in the Academy of the Performing Arts in Huntington Beach, where she performed for one year in the musical theater program and three years in the commercial music program. She engaged in a lot of live performances that shaped her knowledge of stylistic choices in contemporary music settings. APA allowed her hands-on work with background harmonies, choreography, and solo performances in a large-scale show environment. She is very excited for any opportunity to guide students looking to be, or who are already, involved in the Academy of the Performing Arts and other similar school music programs. She strives to have her students combine correct technique with modern performance choices to feel comfortable and confident singing, no matter the occasion.
Mairead has also spent time in Irish bands. She was the lead singer for the band “Wooden Tantrum” in Southern Utah for a few years. Now, she performs as a featured singer for the local Irish band “Cillian’s Bridge,” who play all across Orange County. Surrounded by seasoned musicians with many miles and performances under their belts, Mairead brings a refreshing air of youth and exuberance into the equation.
Mairead is very excited to meet and teach new voices! In the words of Ella Fitzgerald, “the only thing better than singing is more singing.”

Performance opportunities can be as important in your musical development as the lessons themselves. At Molly’s Music we offer at least 6 recitals per year, 3 Kid-Teen ones, 2 Teen-Adult ones, and an Instrumental Only Recital.
Pop Star Camp
Our annual week-long pop vocal performance camp. You’ll make new friends, learn some great vocal technique, and work on the craft of commercial music performance. The class culminates in a Spotlight Performance, in which each student shows off his or her own solo. Class sizes cap at 12 to make sure each student gets plenty of personalized attention.
