She received the Ph.D. in musicology from SUNY-Stony Brook, after completing degrees in historical wind instruments at Musikhochschule Hamburg and in music therapy at the Guildhall School of Music London. Long focused on Medieval Studies, she has published a complete edition of Hildegard von Bingen’s Symphonia, as well as a monograph, with Stefan Morent, entitled 'Hildegard von Bingen: Der Klang des Himmels' (Cologne: Böhlau, 2005). Her editions of unknown 18th-century hautbois music (Muller, Bodinus, Schieferdecker) found in European archives appear at Prima-la-Musica, UK. And The 'Hautbois Reed Making Book,' with Bjoern Lindemann’s pictures and diagrams, has appeared at Egge Verlag in Kassel (2011).
Active as baroque oboist and recorder virtuoso, M. Pfau performs with American Bach Soloists, Jubilate Baroque Orchestra, and California Bach Society in San Francisco, and in Europe with Musica Alta Ripa, Corona Musica and Cythara Ensemble.
