Tabitha Peck is the Director of Choral Activies at Leon and FineArts Department Chair, where she teaches Capital Singers, Madrigals, Melodears, AP Music Theory, and two classes of Technical Theatre. She is a proud graduate — and former marching band Drum Major — of Tallahassee’s James S. Rickards High School, and holds a B.M.E. and M.M.E. in Choral Music Education from the Florida State University College of Music. She studied voice under Janice Harsanyi (undergraduate) and Roy Delp (graduate).

Under her direction, ensembles have performed at the Florida ACDA conference, the FLACDA President’s Concert, the FMEA President’s Concert, and the Southern Region ACDA Conference. Under her direction, choirs have received “Choir of Distinction” titles at the State Music Performance Assessment. She has presented sessions at the FMEA State Conference on the topics of Music Theory and a cappella music. Each summer, Mrs. Peck produces and music directs the Leon Summer Musical, and is active in Leon’s Thespians, selecting and assisting with musical numbers that perform at District and State. The musical numbers are frequently chosen “Critic’s Choice” and “Best in Show” at the District and State level.

 

While at Leon, Mrs. Peck has founded the national award-winning pop a cappella group “The Mane Event”, as well as the Theatre Tech program, which develops the skills necessary for facilitating all productions and performances in the District’s most comprehensive Performing Arts program. She manages the Leon Performing Arts theatre, which oversees approximately 120 events in “LPAT” each season.

Students from Mrs. Peck’s programs have consistently gone on to place in collegiate voice, music education, music therapy, musical theatre, and technical theatre programs. Former students have performed on Broadway, Broadway National Tours, and in Opera Houses throughout the United States and Europe.

Mrs. Peck has been active in leadership with FMEA, FVA, and ACDA throughout her professional career, along with membership in USITT and NAFME. She is currently serving as FVA District 3 Chair after having served as Treasurer in the District for many years, while continuing as a member of the Executive Board as State Treasurer and Webmaster for Florida ACDA. Mrs. Peck enjoys adjudicating choirs, performing as a soloist (her favorite roles to date are the Witch in Into the Woods and Mrs. Potts in Beauty and the Beast) and raising her two beautiful daughters with her husband Tim.
