For several years now, Tina Meals has been helping Sonoma Academy students prepare for vocal competitions and college/professional auditions. Both on campus and through private instruction at her studio, she has been guiding students to fulfill their highest potential. This year, she was hired to be the vocal director for SA's spring show. Her skillful instruction made it possible for the cast's young singers to handle the complex and challenging material. Her high standards, dedication, and impeccable work ethic - in addition to her strong conviction in the capability of her students - enables her to get the most out of them as possible.
Tina has been working one-on-one with my daughter, Nina, for a year now, and I'm always impressed by the focus and rigor of her approach. Her commitment to her craft, and to supporting her students as individual artists, is truly exceptional.
"She is a lovely, warm, and truly caring human. She loves these students as much as I do and it’s a joy to bring her in to our family." - Jen Coté
Please join me in supporting Tina's family as they struggle to cover ongoing medical costs for her daughter that do not fall under the umbrella of their insurance policy. Out of respect for their privacy, I won't go into detail here, though Tina may have spoken openly with some of you. It has been a trying time for them. This is an opportunity to support her child the way she's supported so many of ours. Any amount will help!
