Timora Thurston has had a passion for music since childhood. Music has been a part of her life for as long as she can remember starting with church children’s choirs and piano lessons as a five-year-old. Timora spent her school years busy with choirs, bands, private lessons and community musical theater productions before earning a Bachelor’s of Music degree in bassoon performance. She regularly performs with the Tim Keyes Consort, St Mary’s Chamber Orchestra and Exit 4 Quintet. In addition to Kids’ MusicRound Timora is an active music teacher at Carmel Nursery School and teaches private piano and woodwind lessons. Timora first joined Kids’ MusicRound as a teacher in 2006. A few years later she took time off from teaching to attend Kids’ MusicRound classes as a parent with her daughters. Now that her children are in school, she is super excited to return to teaching and open her own Kids’ MusicRound center!
