Vocal Music Director

Shawna K. Hinkle graduated from Muskingum University with a BA in Music Education, piano performance, and vocal performance and earned a Master in Music degree from Kent State University. While completing coursework for choral conducting at Kent State University, she fulfilled responsibilities as Dr. CM Shearer’s graduate assistant, conducted the KSU Women’s Chorus, and accompanied the KSU Chorale. 
Mrs. Hinkle is honored to teach middle and high school vocal music and assist with the high school instrumental program at Dover City Schools in Dover, Ohio. She seeks to help students develop a comprehensive knowledge and personal awareness of music through active participation in vocal music education opportunities. She believes students need to be assessed regularly to maintain a forward movement in development. Musical instruction is the same in that if students do not have the basics as a foundation, they will not be able to become independent musicians and develop to their full potential. Providing inspiring musical experiences both in the classroom rehearsal environment and concert setting enables students to accomplish outstanding levels of musical growth. A passion for the art of music can be ignited, inspiring personal commitment and dedication.Mrs. Hinkle also served as the vocal music director at Brunswick High School and Copley-Fairlawn High School and Middle Schools. Mrs. Hinkle is actively engaged in NAfME: The National Association for Music Education and the Ohio Music Education Association, as well as an advocate for arts education.
