Celeena Corbin is a percussionist, educator, and author active in the southeast. Before all else, she is an artist musician capable of working in a wide range of styles from new art music, to classical, to pop/rock and jazz. The breadth of her skillset is broad and commanding-Celeena is as comfortable in the concert hall as she is in the pop music venue. Her ability to bridge styles, genres, and percussion disciplines with ease and fluidity is nothing short of remarkable. Whether on drum set or hand drums, behind marimba or timpani, or delivering soulful solo performances on vibraphone while she sings, Celeena’s musical presence is authoritative.

Celeena is currently an Adjunct Percussion Professor at the University of North Georgia and the Director of Percussion Studies at West Hall High School in Oakwood, GA. As an educator, Celeena has worked with high school, university, and Independent World WGI marching ensembles, percussion ensembles, and concert groups by providing engaging, effective, and efficient instruction. Additionally, her writing and arranging for marching and concert percussion ensembles is interesting, musical, and instructional-facilitating successful/competitive performances for the ensembles for which she composes.

Celeena completed her Masters in Percussion Performance in 2021 at Middle Tennessee State University and studied with Lalo Davila, Julie Davila, Brian Mueller, and Russell Wharton. Celeena also received her B.A. in Performance from University of North Georgia in 2018.
