Hi, my name is Christa! I am a voice and piano teacher with a background in songwriting and classical piano. I embrace an intuitive and holistic approach to teaching, learning and discovering the uniqueness of your own style in a fun learning environment. I studied voice and songwriting at Berklee College of Music and have been playing and teaching music to adults and children for several years. I bring a relaxed and holistic and also disciplined approach to my lessons, incorporating warmups and exercises, and song performance and interpretation into each lesson, providing you with tools and strategies for you to take away from each lesson. Voice lesson skills might include: breath management and support, pitch control, ear training, music reading skills and various other topics as well. Piano lesson skills might include note-reading, sight-reading, music theory, time and rhythm, finger technique, music interpretation and more. Lessons are always tailored to your learning goals and musical interests!

Christa is an excellent teacher that makes the experience fun and rewarding.
Christa is a joy as a teacher. She is warm, flexible and a professional in the theories she teaches. Though we are only allotted 30 minutes, I still am learning so much! After many many years from piano playing, she has already given me the confidence that I can do this again. From a more conventional way of being taught piano as a child, she has introduced new ways of learning. Am truly grateful we were connected.
I loved my first lesson with Christa, it was fun and engaging, and I think I'm going to learn a lot from her. I will definitely be scheduling more lessons with her!
