Tina has a BGCE in Secondary Music from Sussex University and a First Class Ba (Hons) from the University of Chichester in Music with Musical theatre.
Tina has conducted a singing group in concerts, led a string group and also ran a school piano club.
She regularly performs in recitals and has sung in several operatic roles. She has toured Europe and America playing the violin in several orchestras.
Uckfield Singers hold rehearsals each Monday during term time at Belmont Centre, next to Holy Cross Church in Uckfield.
The 90-strong choir sings a range of music from stage and screen, rock, pop, folk, gospel and more.
Members work towards two major concerts each year which raise money for local and national charities. They hold other events such as workshops, quiz nights and theatre outings.
The choir is open to everyone aged over 18.
