Tina completed a Bachelor of Music degree with Distinction and a Graduate Diploma from the Queensland Conservatorium, under the tutelage of Gerhard Mallon.
She won a two-year scholarship through the 'German Academic Exchange Service' to study classical flute repertoire with Professor Klaus Schochow at the Munich Musikhochschule from 1995 to 1997.
During these formative years Tina performed solo, in small ensembles, and played with orchestras throughout Germany, Switzerland, England and the Ukraine. After gaining her 'Meisterklasse' diploma in Performance, she continued cultivating her art for three years in Germany and Canada before returning to Australia.
She then completed a Master of Music degree at the Queensland Conservatorium where her focus lay in exploring flute music of Latin America. Since then she's been putting her own studies and experiences into practice!
Tina has performed for and with world renowned flautists such as James Galway, Patrick Gallois, Paul Edmund-Davies, Andras Adorjan and Michael Cox.
