Mairi started singing lessons at age ten and studied a variation of styles including musical theatre, jazz, Scottish folk and classical. She decided to focus on classical singing and studied Music at the University of Glasgow, graduating with a BMus Hons in June 2017.
During her time at University of Glasgow Mairi spent a semester studying at the State University of New York where she performed as a soloist with the Chamber Singers, Choral Society, course recitals and the N.A.T.S Art Song Festival.
Mairi started teaching piano at age 16 at her father’s music school, where she eventually taught piano, singing, violin and theory of music over a period of 5 years before beginning her music degree. She occasionally still finds herself still taking group/solo lessons at Mansfield on days when she only intends to pop down for a visit!
