About Me

Dr. Nana Wolfe-Hill has conducted children’s, women’s, and mixed choirs at Lakeville High School (Minnesota), Greensboro Youth Chorus, First Presbyterian Church-Greensboro, University of North Carolina-Greensboro, and county and state festivals in North Carolina. At Wingate, she teaches women’s choir, advanced women’s ensemble, choral conducting and choral methods.

She is passionate about creating a space where students feel free to be themselves and teaching in ways that empower students to reach their fullest potential. In music-making, she strives for excellence within a creative process that explores learning about others, oneself, and music as art. Her main area of research is feminist pedagogy in the choral rehearsal setting. In addition, she is the repertoire and standards chair for community and youth choirs of the NC American Choral Director’s Association. In her spare time, she loves to read, walk her dogs, and backpack with her husband, Chris.
