Taneka M. Bennett is a musical theatre composer, lyricist, librettist, creative writer, classically trained violist/vocalist, producer and a public relations/strategy consultant for arts related organizations.

    She was inspired by music at an early age and  was often in the company of musical greats, such as Patti Labelle and others. If she wasn’t sitting in her window seat writing music, lyrics or a play, she was singing in the bathroom, playing the viola, playing the piano or having the neighborhood kids perform one of her original theatrical productions – her stage, the grassy area above a retaining wall.

    As a former therapist, life inspires her work and she strives to impact positive change in others through theatre.
