Ms. Cherynne Hinton received her Bachelor of Music and Bachelor of Education degrees from the School of Music at the University of Manitoba in Canada, with a major in piano and minor in voice. Ms. Hinton has over 20 years of experience as a private piano teacher and music educator. She was the recipient of an Education and Youth Government of Manitoba grant, which allowed her students to perform as part of the Juno Awards, (an annual national recognition award program for Canadian performing artists) like the American Grammy Awards. While teaching in Canada, her private piano students received top honors with the Royal Conservatory of Music; one of the largest and most respected music education institutions. Ms. Hinton relocated to Atlanta, Georgia where she spent 13 years teaching middle school chorus and at the elementary level. Her choirs consistently received superior ratings at the Georgia Music Educators Association Large Group Performance Evaluations.
