Chrissy S.

Bolingbrook, IL

About Chrissy

Originally born in Germany, Chrissy developed a passion for music, language and teaching early on. Right out of High School she helped her mother, who was an educator at that time, write and stage-manage a children's Musical which found great response from the audience. During her Music studies in the Netherlands she was offered an internship at the local Music School which she gratefully accepted and where she enjoyed her first voice coaching experience. There she was also nominated as one of the most promising young singer/songwriters at the LUX Festival in Nijmegen. Over the years she was b
lessed with more and more private students in voice as well as piano. During her stay in New York she received the opportunity to work with a Broadway show ensemble ("Dreamgirls") as a Music Director on their different harmonic parts. She's proudly been a member of the Music of Oz Studio staff in Crown Point, Indiana since Jan. 2011 and is looking forward to teaching out of her home now as well. Chrissy is crazy about all her students and wants them to succeed! She's very much looking forward to working with you and having buckets of fun! :-)

Georgina has been a great instructor. She's worked with me to design a lesson plan that's customized to my needs and non-traditional learning style. I specifically wanted to become conversational and gain more exposure to the Argentinian accent. She's given me strategies to help me gain confidence and be able to speak without a full vocabulary. Her lessons have been fun and engaging.

Adriana saved my son from dropping Spanish class. The school warned him that he will be eliminated from Spanish class if he doesn't improve his grades within one month. Adriana gave him the confidence that he needed. In less than one month, he brought his grade from 67 to 81. Thanks Adriana.

I have now had a second lesson with Cyrus. Tonight's lesson was very valuable as he introduced a dialog in Spanish. I have never studied Spanish, ever! I have had 2 classes with Cyrus and I can now greet someone in Spanish already. I can say some very basic phrases, such as "good morning" or "nice to meet you, my name is Mary, what is your name". Tonight we used google documents, it was a very effective. He has listened to what I'd like to achieve and is using that information as a basis on which he builds my lessons around. His plan is geared specifically around my expectations. That, I think, is pretty awesome!!!
