By West Music Conservatory
11/25/2013 5:01:00 PM

Mary FitzgeraldMary Fitzgerald holds a Bachelor of Music Education and Piano degree from Simpson College where she graduated in 2011. There she also participated in women’s and mixed choirs. While at Simpson, she studied under the direction of Dr. Ron Albrecht and Dr. Michael Patterson. Previously she was taught by Zeljka Stijacic of Des Moines.

In contrast to her classical music background, Mary also enjoys metal music.  She acts as the Bell Choir Director at St. Francis in West Des Moines. In addition to music, Mary also enjoys Starbucks coffee, reading, genealogy, Mexican food, and Texas Hold ‘Em poker. Mary considers herself a lifelong learner and within the past couple years has greatly realized the importance of music, emotion, practice, and patience. Mary accepts students of all ages. Her lessons are relaxed and humor-filled, yet focus on a constructive learning process. She offers lessons weekly or bi-weekly; whichever fits the need of her students’ schedule.
