Being able to create music is an integral part of the human condition as it helps us express and understand an exceedingly wide range of human emotion. Teaching how to do it has therefore always been my greatest passion and having been privileged with the guidance of great pedagogues in the past, it is my ambition to pass that invaluable knowledge and skill on to aspiring musicians. I am certain that every person (no matter what age) has vast potential and it is my duty as a teacher to extract those talents and nurture creativity. Guiding students to find a deeper understanding of themselves and their relationship to music will encourage them to not only be exceptional artists, but also human beings. It is essential to cater to each student individually helping each one find the right practice strategies, technical studies, repertoire, and most importantly, their own musical identity. My goal is not simply to develop skill, but to teach students how to teach themselves, find their ...

I've been teaching guitar for 5 years helping students develop a love for the instrument and learn more about music along the way. There are many styles I'm comfortable teaching from folk (fingerpicking or flatpicking), rock, blues and funk and I would love working on developing a unique style of your own. Within the first few lessons you'll have a solid base of strumming, picking and chord changes and even a few simple songs under your belt. Moving on from there I will craft lessons to move you toward a "goal song," making sure to cater your progress to your needs while keeping a focus on good technique. I enjoy working with students of all ages and experiences and I can't wait to meet you!

Kristina
Christina is a PHENOMENAL teacher! I highly recommend. She’s very observant and was able to identify specific areas that I can improve on as a singer. Better yet, she goes out of her way to create (and record for later practice) vocal exercises targeted to my weak areas. I appreciate her perspective on what songs I should try to sing; she has increased my confidence and helped me get out of my comfort zone.

I had seen Christina in-person before Covid in NYC and have continued to take lessons with her virtually ever since (she has been very flexible given the pandemic). No matter if we are in person or over FaceTime, the energy she brings to my lessons is one of the reasons I look forward to our time together each week!
