Sylvia Rose Aycock is a dedicated music educator with a passion for providing young people a platform to share their voices. As the Artistic & Executive Director of the Girl Choir of South Florida, she is devoted to creating beauty in the world with her colleagues and students.

Joining the Girl Choir staff in 2017, Sylvia has worked tirelessly to unite ensembles that reflect the diversity of South Florida. Under her leadership, GCSF has performed with the Lynn Philharmonia, Master Chorale of South Florida, with the alt indie rock band KIDS, and on WLRN’s Folk & Acoustic Music radio program. 

Sylvia is especially honored to lead the Girl Choir of South Florida as an alum of the program, and credits the group with inspiring her to pursue a career in music education. Sylvia earned her Bachelor of Music Education degree from Florida State University where she was awarded several grants to conduct research on community music education in Brazil, and completed her honors thesis on the topic. Applying what she learned in her research, Sylvia started a choir at the PACE Center for Girls in Tallahassee, FL.

Sylvia’s teaching experience includes leading middle and high school music programs in Orlando and Boca Raton, FL. Her students consistently achieved high ratings at district and state assessments, including traveling to New York City to perform in 2019.

Beyond her role at Girl Choir, Sylvia continues to sing professionally at All Saints Episcopal Church and as a member of the Festival Singers of Florida under the direction of Dr. Kevin Fenton. She holds professional memberships in the American Choral Directors Association and Chorus America.
