In his role as a Instrumental Music Teacher and the Chair of Fine Arts Department, John Bina takes great pride in working with the student body here at Saint Thomas Academy. Since coming to Saint Thomas Academy in 2011, Bina has seen a trend among all the Cadet student body. “I find the students here to be hard-working, dedicated and passionate about making music." Bina has had many great moments at Saint Thomas Academy, but he says his favorite moment by far, happened while on tour with the Vista band in 2017.  “We played an outdoor concert on the shores of Lake Como, and ended the concert with the Italian National Anthem with the entire village singing along.” In addition to music, John has another passion in international travel, “I have been to Europe many times. Some of my favorites stops include Florence, Italy and Salzburg, Austria.”
