Maureen Anderson was born into a musical family in eastern Oregon. After moving to Tennessee as a teenager she became involved in every choral and theater activity she could find, participating in All-State choirs, community choir, madrigal and swing choirs, national forensic speech competitions, VFW national competitions, and numerous stage productions. She continued with music and theater groups in college and was grateful for unique opportunities to sing professionally. Maureen graduated from Murray State University in Kentucky with a BA in music performance. After graduation she married her college sweetheart, Aaron. She studied vocal performance and pedagogy with Dr. Lucinda Schultz at Armstrong College in Savannah, GA, where she also taught private voice and started a Kindermusik program for children. 

Maureen stepped away from formal involvement with music while she and her husband raised and educated their family. She is honored for the opportunity now to make music alongside Overture staff and students. Teaching music is an overflow of God’s grace in her life. Music tunes hearts and trains affections to the things of God, edifies the Church, and is an engaging means of opening doors for sharing the gospel. Her desire is to share the God-given joy of music with her students. 

Maureen and Aaron have lived in middle Tennessee for 23 years and are active members of Parish Presbyterian Church. They have five children and two sons-in-law, and Maureen is always ready to share pictures of her four amazing grandkids with anyone who shows the slightest interest.
