Tina Tate

Tina TateTina Tate has been performing professionally as a freelance artist throughout the lower mainland for over 20 years.   After a life-long passion for music was fostered in private violin lessons starting at the age of two, she went on to complete a diploma in music (KPU), a certificate in arts and entertainment management (Capilano University), and a bachelor’s degree in music therapy (Capilano University) while picking up the piano and guitar along the way. Classical, Celtic and Folk music are her favorite genres to play either solo or collaborating with other musicians on stage or in a studio.   

Tina is currently the artistic director, owner, and operator of the Music for Life School of Music.  The Music for Life School of Music provides in-home music lessons to students of all ages and levels.  They are committed to dynamically enhancing our students' lives through music.  Their teachers are professional, university-trained musicians and are valued immensely.  They strive to maintain open communication between all parties (students, their family, teachers and administration) in order to provide the absolute best quality of private music education catered specifically to each student's needs.
