Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Denise Bense

 Welcome to the Horbelt Band. I am excited to start my first year here at Horbelt. I taught Band/Instrumental Music at Brackman for 19 years and general music at Collins for 8 years prior. I was also the head coach for the Barnegat HS Marching Band for 7 years. I graduated from Trenton State with my music education, elementary education, and early childhood degrees.

  I hope to share my love of music with your child through encouragement and enthusiasm. Music is a shared language that everyone can understand and enjoy.
