Ms. Amanda Taylor
Hello Students and Parent,
I am Amanda Taylor, the Choir Teacher here at Maryvale High School. This is my sixth year at MHS. I have lived in Arizona my entire life and am a proud graduate of Maryvale High School, class of 2007. While at MHS I was in Concert, Madrigal, and Jazz Choir all four years, and received the outstanding choir member of the year award(2007) my senior year. I also sang with the Southwest Regional Honor Choir and Greater Phoenix Honor Choir. I received my education at Northern Arizona University and graduated with a Bachelors in Music Education with an emphasis in choral music. While at NAU I sang in the NAU Womans Chorale, Northern Voices Jazz Choir and The Shrine of the Ages Choir. I also played with the Harold M. Harter Memorial Handbell Choir and served as stage manager for the NAU production of Mozart's "The Magic Flute". I am currently pursuing my Master in Curriculum and Instruction, emphasis in Technology from Grand canyon University. I am very excited to work with the students again here at MHS. If you have any questions or concerns please contact me via email, text message or phone.
My philosophy is;
"It isn't about you (the teacher). It isn't about the music. It is about them (the students)."
