TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Gena Mayo is a homeschooling mom of 8 children. She has always homeschooled her kids, and her oldest two are now in college. She taught for 5 years in the public school system (junior high choir and elementary general music) and has taught early childhood music and movement classes for babies through 7 years old since 1998. In recent years she has also taught private voice lessons, musical theater classes, homeschool co-op music appreciation classes, a high school voice class, and been a musical director for full-length musicals. She has also had extensive performing experience: in musicals, choirs, show choir, opera, and as a contemporary Christian soloist, pianist, and worship team member at church.
