Tina Hebner is a classically trained musician with a passion for music that has been with her throughout her life.
As a child, she watched her grandfather build violins in his home workshop. She fondly remembers the sense of community that music brought to her grandparents home as friends and family would gather to enjoy an evening of music together.
Tina enjoys feeling that same sense of community and musical kinship now as she encourages people of all ages to explore music.
Throughout her 20+ years of performing, facilitating workshops and private lessons, Tina has learned as much from her students as they have from her.
She encourages people to enjoy playing with passion, and not to worry about perfection. This mindset has allowed her students to enjoy music with her in a spirit of carefree exploration!!
"I can't believe how much I'm learning!"
"You know how to explain things in my lessons so that beginners like me can really understand."
"I never thought I could play the guitar. I can't believe I'm finally learning how to."
"I came to this camp a waitress, but thanks to you I left as a musician."
"My daughter had guitar lessons with Tina. They were so much more than guitar lessons... They were lessons on self confidence, encouragement, and she turned out to be a great musician. Tina was a wonderful mentor."
"Thanks for a great evening. I can't remember when I've felt so relaxed playing for people who are not part of my household. ;-)"
"Thanks Tina for all that you do--for setting up the Zoom sessions, keeping it going so positively, and for the music you give so freely."
"Tina is pretty amazing. Somehow through her laughter jokes and patient teachings we end up going happily home learning more than we thought we did. Tina has a special way of reaching each and every student."
"You were great fun. In 14 years that's the first song I ever memorized. "
"I really appreciate how your humor makes concepts more memorable. "
