From Student to Teacher
Where it Began
Tina Norman began her music career at age twelve when she was given an upright bass to play because she was the tallest student in the middle school orchestra. From that moment on she knew that her life would be focused on her passion for music and her love of the bass which is contagious to her students and her fellow musicians.
Tina has a vast performance background in Jazz, Orchestra and Symphonic Band. She was the Principal Bassist during college and has performed with the band Kansas, Kurt Bestor, Gentri and as part of the Juilliard Jazz summer program. She currently performs as the Principle Bassist with the Nebo Philharmonic. In addition to the Bass she plays multiple instruments including string and percussion.
Tina holds a Bachelor of Commercial Music with an emphasis in Bass Performance from the Horne School of Music at Snow College where she graduated with Honors. Concurrent with that program she completed her requirements for licensure to teach Music grades K-12 through Weber State University. Tina is currently developing the music program for the newly built Treeside Charter School in Provo. She also teaches private lessons on several instruments through Boothe Brothers Music in Spanish Fork. Tina lives in Pleasant Grove, UT and was just married this fall!
