Margy Horowitz began her musical career at the age of 5 in Chicago, taking both piano and solfege lessons from Livia Ayal, a student of Zoltán Kodály and Béla Bartók. In just a few years she was accompanying her friends in school plays and choirs. She began teaching piano at the age of 12 and continued throughout high school and college, where she majored in music. She also performed in her college’s theater department in several dramatic plays and musicals.
Margy earned a Master’s Degree in Piano Pedagogy from Northeastern Illinois University and followed that by working as an editor for Clavier Magazine (a publication for piano teachers). After relocating to Los Angeles in 1998, she worked as an editor of sheet music for Alfred Publishing and took on a few piano students as well. In just a year, she was instructing over 50 students a week.
In 2005, feeling the urge to perform again, Margy founded the Jewish Women’s Repertory Company and has produced, directed, and accompanied a full-length musical each winter since then.
Margy currently lives in Beverly Hills with her husband, Jeremy, and her two children, Julia and Nathan.
