Driven by bringing together people to create unparalleled opportunities for students, Maggie W. Spear serves as the Assistant Director of Strategic Growth and Programming at The Hartt School Community Division (HCD). A Connecticut native who studied at HCD growing up, Maggie joined the HCD team in 2011 as the Music Program Manager and later transitioned to the Music Program Director. During her tenure she has overseen the growth of core music programming, the expansion of summer and academic year program offerings, as well as developed efficiencies to allow for a more streamline experience for families and faculty alike. Her work at HCD aligns her personal and professional passions, encouraging the development and support of transformative arts communities where students become a part of something larger than themselves. Maggie holds a B.M. in jazz studies (trombone) with a concentration in music-in-education from the New England Conservatory of Music, Boston, MA and an Ed.M. in arts-in-education focusing on arts programming and community engagement from Harvard University, Cambridge, MA.
