The biggest compliment I can give Miss Cindy is that when I ask my son how his class went, he says "fun"!! He practices everyday . . . without prompting. He's always eager to play for anyone who'll listen. He really enjoys the piano and he especially enjoys taking lessons with Miss Cindy. If you're trying to find you're child's passion, Cindy's Music School is a good place to start."

I specialize in Pop, R&B, Musical Theater, Spiritual, Gospel, and all other forms of contemporary music.
I started performing on stage at the age of four years old. I began formal private lessons in voice and acting at the age of 10 at The Newark School of the Arts and at The Children’s Theater Workshop in Essex County, New Jersey. As a young teen, I also began directing and leading the youth and adult choirs in church. As a result of my commitment to my craft I had numerous opportunities to perform and record as an accomplished artist throughout the United States and abroad.
As an international performer my credits include touring throughout the country of China as a lead singer for the
I am currently the CEO of my own entertainment company 2-4-1 Entertainment and mobile music school. I perform regularly for various commercial establishments and private venues.
I studied Music and Theater at Montclair State University earning a BA degree along with a teaching license in performing arts.
With all that said, I describes my greatest accomplishments as sharing my passion to sing to all who are willing to learn. I am as passionate about teaching as I am about performing.
*** Lesson Details ***
If you love singing, then you should love your lessons. Lessons with me are fun, challenging as well as enriching.
Instruction will include:
-Light stretching exercises to reduce tension and relax muscles that can block good vocal production and vocal freedom.
-Carefully listen to, accessing and giving you feedback about your vocal potential and growth
-Identifying vocal range and limitations
-Proper vocal techniques with respect to vocal scales, learning to breathe, pitch, tonality, durability and posture
-Selecting music collaboratively that suits your tastes and ability
-Working with professional backing tracks like many contemporary artists in the industry
-Lyrical interpretation with respect to performance
-Sharing the understanding of vocal anatomy and how it affects singing
-Allowing you to tape record lessons for practice purposes.
-Comfortable environments where asking questions are encouraged and making mistakes are simply part of the learning process.
-Teaching and practicing good vocal health, including the need to drink water and monitor the speaking voice
-Building confidence as a singer and performer
As much as I loves teaching and building relationships with voice students in my studio, I does not believe lessons should be limited to the classroom. The training process may include performing small venues for family and friends to acquaint the student to performing in front of an audience.
My goal is to teach students who have a desire to perform, the necessary rudiments of singing and performing so he/she can go out into the world and shine as a polished singer!

Until I faced my fears, sent Christine an email and asked if she would be willing to show me a few things about singing. She was so warm, and welcoming I just had to meet such a nice woman.
I realized, this was all in my head....my lessons not only taught me about music but it taught me how to love "all" of me including my voice. I'm so grateful to Ms. Christine, thank you for all your inspiration and support!

It is because of her reliable attitude that I highly recommend Christine for music and voice lessons.

My goal of teaching is to improve the student's intellect, mental-physical collaboration, to develop the skills including aural ability, emotional connection to music, enjoy playing, and to develop strong self-discipline that the students can apply to other activities. I am passionate to keep this precious human art form alive, especially in these future generations!
I grew up in professional conservatories, and started playing the violin at age 4 instructed by my mother who is a full time professional violinist with the Shanghai Symphony. I was so lucky to have her as my first violin teacher that through her teaching, I understand how important it is to study with a patient, encouraging and dedicated teacher. Teaching is such a rewarding experience to me that I am able to use my skills and knowledge to help students developing their interest and potential talent as well as achieving their multiple learning purposes.

Educational philosophy. My teaching originates from the Bel Canto Technique, which allows a singer to sing effortlessly any style of music from top 40 current to R & B to Rock to Classical.
I believe practice makes perfect. Hard work, consistency, diligence and dedication leads to results.

I help students develop healthy singing practice habits that will prepare their voice for every musical performance.
Please hear my playing on my website before signing up for lessons.
Lessons are individually tailored to whatever learning style suits the student best, at whatever pace is most comfortable and realistic. I have a set of lesson plans prepared for beginners, but eventually if there are songs or pieces the student would like to learn, I would be happy to learn them myself during my free time so you get the most out of our lessons.
I teach students of all different ages, and for children especially, learning an instrument can be a lifelong tool that helps with confidence building and self-motivation. I studied guitar for 13 years, and classical composition for 9 years, in addition to being a songwriter and producer of alternative rock. I can teach students to r
I love all styles of music, but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to anyone who wants to excel as a musician professionally, or as a hobby. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to reach your musical goals!

I am passionate in giving my students tools beyond the conventional methods of traditional music lessons. Traditional music lessons often emphasize memorization, regurgitation and limit musicians to only what's "on the page." I believe in tailoring my teaching methods to fit any students visual, auditory and kinesthetic styles of learning. I want every student to have a strong technical foundation so they intentionally break any "rule" they wish.
I believe a music education is simply not complete without an introduction technology i
