About Maggie

Maggie McCallie holds a master’s degree in flute performance from University of Missouri-Kansas City and a bachelor’s degree in music from Principia College. During high school, Maggie decided to learn clarinet and saxophone so that she could participate in the school musicals. She also played baritone saxophone and eventually lead alto in jazz band. Since that time, Maggie has continued to practice and perform on all three instruments.

In 2011, Maggie attended the Suzuki de Peru festival to take Suzuki Flute training. In 2012 she took book 2 Suzuki Flute training and in 2013 studied tone development with the developer of the Suzuki Flute program, Takahashi.

Currently, Maggie serves as principal flutist of the St. Louis Philharmonic and the Gateway Festival Orchestra. She has participated as a member of the West Winds clarinet quintet which was originally formed to play the music of Matt Betton, renowned clarinetist, orchestra leader, composer, and founder of the International Jazz Association.

Other performance opportunities include various performances in musicals throughout the St. Louis area for the past 12 years. These performances have included a mixture of flute, piccolo, clarinet, and saxophone.

As a teacher, Maggie started giving her first lessons in the 8th grade. During high school, she assisted the band director in teaching after school lessons for beginning flute students. For the past 12 years, Maggie has been teaching clarinet, saxophone, and flute lessons in the St. Louis area. She has also taught band, choir, and pre-school and elementary general music classes.
