I am Mara Keen

Mara’s love for piano, composing, and performing began at the age of 6. She is a graduate of George Mason University and received her Bachelor of Music in composition. She spent a semester studying at Oxford University researching various musical styles and music history. Currently she is working on her Master of Music and is expected to graduate in 2022. Mara has been teaching piano since 2012 and has taught ages ranging from toddler to adult. She likes to push students to get out of their comfort zone, and experiment with different musical styles.  She loves to instill a lifelong love of music in others and enjoys bringing out the creative side in her students. She recently presented some of her film scoring work for Patchogue's "Song Slam" contest.
