About our Choral Director       

John David Maybury is so grateful to be teaching at A. Mario Loiederman Middle School as the Director of Choirs and a Digital Music teacher. Maybury strives to provide and organize empowering experiences being a director, clinician, arranger, composer, a vocal coach, and leading educational workshops in many singing organizations like SingStrong, CASA, BHS, ACDA, and MMEA to name a few. Doing this has allowed him to coach ages spanning over 8 decades from 7 year old beginners to 90 year old gold medalist in the Barbershop Harmony Society, where he currently is a front line director of two choruses. He has done this across the nation from here in Maryland, to California, to Ireland, where he arrived to successfully get his Master’s Degree with no place to stay, no source of income, and only 5 euros in his back pocket. Maybury so strongly believes in the importance of music in our lives combined with Dewey’s quote, “Education is not preparation for life, education is life itself,” that chances are if you are talking to him, he is simultaneously wondering how he can get you involved in singing somewhere if you aren’t already, even if it is with him right in that moment!
