I've had over 8 years of experience teaching people of all ages in Canada and here in the United States, I have become an expert at being punctual and having patience towards each person's way of learning. I have developed different strategies and problem solving in the event of a conflict, and to always have a positive outlook on a situation while encouraging the students to reach and achieve their goals. During our time together I would help you with proper breathing technique and vocal placement! We would explore all different genres of music to help broaden your voice stylistically.

Beyond my teaching experience, I believe I am a good fit for you because I would bring enthusiasm and a great dynamic energy to your team, along with great communication skills that I’ve garnered from my previous jobs.

Training includes: Royal Conservatory of Music Grades 1-8, Piano Grade 6, Music Theory Grades 1 and 2 with First Class Honours and Distinction.

Great first lesson!!
Grace W.
My daughter takes guitar from Maria and I didn’t realize how much she’s progressed until we went to a friend’s recital. 8 months with Maria and my child is leaps and bounds ahead of kids who’ve been taking for 2-3 years. It’s really motivating for her to see. Maria has standards which are non-negotiable but she’s patient and truly guides the kids to success. I’m so happy with our choice as her as a teacher.
Carlos V.
Maria has been wonderful with our son. Very motivating and goal based. The recitals blow me away year after year. The progress these kids make with her plus the longevity of her students says a lot.

"This was my first vocal training ever, and I am so glad I had Christine for an instructor! As soon as I signed up, Christine called me, introduced herself, asked me questions regarding my experience in singing, goals, and discussed other areas concerning the training. I lacked confidence in singing, especially singing in front of others. I was also experiencing vocal fatigue and hoarseness due to incorrect singing and inadequate breath support. Christine educated me on my vocal anatomy (which is very important for signers) and went out of her way to give me additional diagrams and aids to assist my developing strong, correct, vocal techniques. She has an incredible, can do, personality that I needed and made me so comfortable. She is passionate about training students. She has a great ear for tone and pitch, and her style of teaching is built around being patient, positive, and other attributes that make learning fun. Christine is determined to help you meet or exceed your goals. I am so grateful that I met Christine!"
