New Chorus Teacher -- Mr. Jeff Maynard

Hello All!  Thank you again for such a wonderful year with NHS Chorus.  I am proud of all we have accomplished.  I hate that I have to leave so soon, but sometimes life throws a curve ball!  I am confident that NHS chorus is in a good place and will grow and move forward in the coming years.

This is an introductory post (I will have a full "bio" post coming soon), but wanted to announce that Mr. Jeff Maynard will be the new choral director at Northern High School.  After interviewing several candidates, the arts team and myself believe Mr. Maynard has the passion, skill, energy, and vision to take the NHS Chorus forward!  I am very excited about what Mr. Maynard will do at NHS.  He is an experienced teacher, performer, singer, conductor, and private instructor, gaining experiences in St. Louis, Boston, New York, and the Triangle.  While he has been a choral conductor, he decided to earn his Masters in music education at UNC-Chapel Hill (the same program at Ms. Fitz and Mrs. Hayek), and comes highly recommended.  Again, a full bio is coming soon, but I thought I would let you know about Mr. Maynard, and I confidently say that NHS Chorus is in good hands!

Have a wonderful summer!
