• About Mrs. Hughes

    This year is my 9th year teaching choral music at Tipp City Schools.  Our symphonic choir recieved a I at State Contest for the past 14 years straight but had to take a year off from contest as school ended just days before district contest due to Covid-19.  This year will certainly also be different in many ways but I will do my best to continue to teach the techniques of singing, the art of choral music, and the love and understanding of music in general.  
    My previous experience includes six years of teaching choral music in the public schools and one year as a graduate teaching assistant at Wright State University.  After graduating from The University of Dayton in 2005 I began my teaching career at Sidney High School.  While there I taught 5 high school choirs, 7th and 8th grade choir, music theory and 8th grade general music.  I was very active in OMEA, serving as President Elect for the district in 2009 and taking my groups to Solo and Ensemble, Large Group District and State Contest every year.  After my five years at Sidney, I took a position at Wright State University, where I assisted teaching Men’s Choir and Collegiate Chorale and taught the Chamber Singers.  During that year I received my Master in Music; Choral conducting performance.  In 2011 I took a position at Springboro High School and was there for one year teaching High School Choir.  All three of my groups received Superior ratings at District Contest and went on to State Contest for the first time in program history. I have also served as adjunct faculty at Wright State University teaching chamber choir and performing in the "Madrigal Dinners."  I am interested in fitness and dabble in running and have a beautiful daughter named Adelynn.
