Maddy began her music journey at the age of 5 when she surprised her parents by teaching herself songs on piano just by listening to them. She began piano lessons by the age of 6 and also starting singing in musicals and theatre productions, though by high school she found her true passion when playing in a band. By high school she was taking piano, guitar, voice, and songwriting lessons, all with Real School instructors! Maddy is what Real School likes to call a "homegrown musician." Playing guitar and singing became her main focus and in 2015 Maddy was accepted to Berklee College of Music where she attended in 2016 for Voice and Guitar. Maddy's most recent music venture is her debut album that she wrote and recorded, "Rings," featuring 7 original songs. Maddy has a passion for performance and songwriting which stems from her first and favorite inspiration, The Beatles.
Maddy's teaching style puts an emphasis on understanding the fundamentals necessary to play in a band of all different styles, as well as understanding theory and rhythm, although the most essential part of teaching for her is making sure her students are having fun and being creative!
