Anna Mayo

(she/her)

INSTRUCTOR

Anna Mayo recently moved from New York City to create, perform and teach in the Greater Boston Area! She is a professional musician, actor and film director/producer with 15+ years of experience as a teaching artist – currently voice, piano and acting.

Anna majored in Classical Vocal Performance, and has a Bachelors Degree from Belmont University and a Masters Degree from Manhattan School of Music. She has additional acting training from the Meisner Studio at NYU, a yoga teaching certification (200hr – Abhaya Yoga), and a professional cheerleading background with Universal Cheerleaders Association (UCA).

Anna uses a technical and holistic approach that regards the whole person, and believes that music lessons are opportunities to not just practice music, but self awareness, expression and empowerment. Their students have gone on to perform on American Idol, collegiate sporting events, leads in school musicals, and special occasions, but she also teaches students who just want a space to express themselves.

Anna has also sung for diverse audiences, from the Duke of Austria to the incarcerated on death row. Lending her voice to chamber, choral and a cappella groups, she has enjoyed the stages of the Lincoln and Kennedy Centers, and international tours in Italy, Austria, China, and across the US. She loves to sing theatre, classical, country, rock, folk and vocal harmonies. 

Behind the scenes, Anna’s a fierce advocate for environmental conservation, food injustice, LGBTQIA+ and holistic mental health. For fun, she watches Miyazaki films at home with their partner, hangs out in nature, checks out immersive art/design exhibits and dances.
