Tina Bennett has 37 years of experience in all aspects of instrumental and vocal music education with a diverse student population (elementary general music, junior high literary classical theater choir production, and variety of senior high school ensembles). In addition to the spectrum of teaching responsibilities, Bennett established and created an award-winning show choir, which she solely developed, implemented, and produced. This vocal ensemble received top honors and superior rating in several states.
Although Bennett has instructed approximately 300 students each year for the past 37 years, her expertise is in performance coaching, in both small group and individualized instructional settings. Her passion and commitment has inspired and impacted the career choices of several of her senior high school students in which they continued their professional pursuit in the field of music (radio producer/promoter, music educators, military band, and entertainment law). Bennett graduated with a Music Education Degree from Clarion University with additional graduate credits at Wilkes-Barre and Duquesne.
