Hailing from the small town of Aberdeen Washington, Maria Wulf fell in love with the drums at an early age. She found her love of jazz in high school after attending the Bud Shank Jazz Workshop in Pt. Townsend Washington, (now the Centrum Jazz Workshop), where she met and learned under Jeff Hamilton, Larance Marable, and Frankie Capp. Attending the workshop for several summers laid the foundation for her desire to embark on a career in jazz along with making connections with future key players in the Northwest music scene.
After completing her graduate degrees Maria embarked on her Music Educator journey with stints teaching all types of music classes to all grade levels including Band, Jazz Band, Orchestra, Choir, Guitar, Class Piano, and Music Appreciation. Maria has also served as Adjunct faculty at many colleges in the area including Grays Harbor College, Pierce College, St. Martins University, and ten years at Pacific Lutheran University. For six years she was director of the Seattle Women’s Jazz Orchestra, an all women 16 piece big band. She is currently percussion instructor at South Puget Sound Community College in Olympia. She can be seen performing in venues up and down the I-5 corridor from Seattle to Portland.
