Nora Maynard

Style: Pop; Opera; Jazz; Folk; Rock; Classical; Musical Theatre
Title: Whole Tone Music Academy Director, Voice & Violin Instructor

Nora has been developing a dynamic, holistic teaching style since 2009, while simultaneously gaining stage experience around the Boston area and abroad. Nora recently performed both original and operatic offerings as part of the "Concert for One" events thru the Celebrity Series of Boston. She received her MM from Longy School of Music of Bard College and is currently pursuing a certification in YogaVoice with Mark Moliterno.

Nora helps her students gain body awareness, efficiency of effort, and genuine emotional engagement. Her voice students develop ease of tone in the upper register, a bold lower register, and a playful-yet-passionate attitude towards singing. For her violin students, she offers an economical left-hand technique, body-aware playing posture, and development of rich tone through balance and trust. Nora feels called to bring the experience of solo and ensemble music-making back into community and family life. She herself grew up singing and playing everything from Elton John to Bach with her family. Whether you seek dramatic coaching to polish and refresh your operatic repertoire, are a karaoke connoisseur, or are trying to pick up music for the first time, Nora will work with you to enrich your experience of music making.
