Mac hails from Los Angeles, CA and has been playing music in various professional settings since he was 14. He plays around 10 instruments and has been teaching for 10 years. His teaching style is based around understanding Theory and the language of music, and applying it in practical and performance settings. And at the end of the day, he just wants his students to have a good time and feel motivated to continue pursuing their passions.
Mac Christensen received his B.M. in Piano Performance in 2016 from Brigham Young University, where he studied with Dr. Richard Anderson. While there, he accompanied instrumental and vocal soloists and a French diction singing lab. He was also a tenor in the BYU Concert Choir. After graduating, Mac moved to Arizona to study music therapy at ASU, where he gained experience working with children with autism, older adults with dementia, hospital patients, hospice patients, and adults with developmental disabilities through his clinical work. In October 2018 he became a board-certified music therapist (MT-BC). He also taught private piano lessons at East Valley School of Music from January 2017 to May 2019, and accompanied the Chandler Children's Choir from January 2019 to May 2019.
Mac recently moved back to Provo with his wife and daughter to pursue a master's degree in speech language pathology at BYU. He is a member of the Collaborative Pianists Guild of Utah, and is excited to be a part of BIMEC."
