Maryann “Mar.” Harman Mar. founded Music with Mar. in 1993 when her daughter, Gioia, was 3 years old. Before then, she was a music teacher for K – 8. Her passion for getting parents to value the importance of music in their children’s lives inspired her to create the program and the supportive music and activities. Mar. still actively teaches classes and travels extensively lecturing on brain research and music. To learn more about the wonderful workshops she presents, visit this page : Mar.’s Workshop HOPportunities
Because of the demand for the Music with Mar. Brand workshops, the following instructors have received extended training to present workshops.
Becky Sego (2009) Becky has a Bachelors Degree in Music Education and is a National Board Certified Teacher. After 14 years teaching music in public school, Becky became a Mom of two beautiful girls. Looking for an option to share her passion of music with kids while staying home, she learned of this wonderful program. Along with being an active private woodwind instructor, adjudicator and leadership clinician, she is very excited to be bringing Music with Mar. to the Orlando area. Her girls are also very happy to make Mr. Froggy a new part of their family!

Tamara Mulholland (2003) Once upon a time, Tamara was enjoying staying at home with her two boys, taking them to playgroups and, of course, Music with Mar.! She has a BA in Geography and 5 years in pediatrics. Tamara visited the MwM website and noticed they were looking for instructors. She thought “Wow! I think I can do this!”. What a joy it is to provide an outlet for moms, a learning environment for preschoolers and not have to work full time. Being a MwM instructor has opened doors, too. Tamara leads the “cherub choir” at her church and works at a preschool as a music teacher. Life is great!
