Tina Beveridge, Ph.D. 

Tina Beveridge is an Assistant Professor of Choral Music Education at the Dewberry School of Music of George Mason University. Prior to her appointment at Mason, Dr. Beveridge had twenty years of music teaching experience in Seattle and Chicago Public Schools as well as rural and suburban districts near Portland, Oregon. 

A specialist in choral music, she has taught music at the elementary, middle, and high school levels, as well as the community college and university levels. Early experience working in urban settings has directed her philosophy and research in educational policy issues, which she has published in journals such as Arts Education Policy Review, Music Educators Journal and Update: Applications of Research in Music Education. 

Prof. Beveridge was awarded the Ph.D. in Music Education in August 2022 from the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami, where she taught vocal/choral methods classes, and supervised student teacher interns. She earned a Master of Music degree in Music Education from Northwestern University in 2009 and a Bachelor of Arts degree with a concentration in Music Education from Seattle Pacific University in 2002.
