MANSFIELD - Richland Academy of the Arts has announce its most recent new-hire, Bailey Maxfield, who will be teaching voice lessons at the school.
Maxfield obtained her Master’s degree in Vocal Performance from Bowling Green State University. Her previous experience includes both private teaching and serving as a K-12 substitute teacher. During her degree, she specialized in classical voice and opera and has experience with musical theatre and contemporary styles.
During her time at Bowling Green, Maxfield participated in the world premiere of student composed operas as part of the annual MicroOperas program.
