Music shapes and influences young lives in a way that no other subject matter can. For over 45 years, Macie Publishing Company has been dedicated to partnering with music educators to instill a love of music in their students which enriches and brings great joy throughout their lives. We are dedicated to our core belief that “Music is for Everyone.”
OUR VISION AND COMMITMENT
Macie Publishing Company was founded in 1974 by a music educator, Ed Sueta. Early in his teaching career, Ed believed that there was a better way to teach young students than with the available materials. He began his life’s work of creating student-friendly, sequential curriculum materials that would better serve his students and nurture and promote their success.
In response to anyone who claimed to “just not be musical,” he would respond that “everyone is musical-it is just a matter of showing them how to bring it out.” His children, Julie and Ed, Jr., have worked with Macie for over 30 years and are committed to continue his work and vision. Macie contributes to organizations such as Recorders without Borders as well as to missions that have brought music teachers to the Dominican Republic, Uganda, Haiti, El Salvador, Cuba and Kenya. Macie just established a series of “Music is for Everyone” educational grants in Ed’s memory for economically disadvantaged schools and budget challenged districts in the U.S.
Ed’s work is also continued by the company’s clinicians (with whom he worked closely), who have shared their expertise at hundreds of state and national music conferences, workshops and professional development sessions throughout the United States.
Macie is totally dedicated to providing the highest level of personalized, friendly service. Our customers are the cornerstone of everything we do. The ultimate measure of our success is the success and satisfaction of the teachers and students we serve. It is truly our honor and privilege.
