In addition to years of live rock singing experience, I have over ten years of classical vocal training from opera singer Jordan Ferrar. I help each student to find their own unique voice, combing healthy singing with contemporary singing styles.

About Christina B.

I cut my teeth studying classical piano with an acclaimed pianist, and in high school I became a keyboardist and vocalist for one of the United States’ largest megachurches. I began to teach piano lessons while in high school.

I later went on to NYC to pursue a music career, where I founded an indie rock band with a cult following. As frontwoman and keyboardist for the band, I produced four albums that were praised by magazines like Spin, Magnet, and Billboard. With the band, I toured extensively and appeared on stages with notable artists such Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Kate Nash, Nick Waterhouse, and Lucius.

I also have over ten years of classical vocal training from an acclaimed opera singer, and I can help vocal students combine healthy singing with contemporary singing styles.

My students learn not only to play or sing songs, they also learn about the music theory behind the songs, so they can be empowered to exercise their own creativity. As a seasoned performer and artist, I can also teach students about songwriting, live performance, home recording, music and video production, forming a band, and the music industry.

I have been taking lessons with Christina for some time now and have been extremely impressed with her teaching style. She knows how to break down the music in ways that are understandable, and instills excitement about the learning process. I strongly recommend her as a teacher for any child or adult.

I have been Christina's student for almost a year now and with no prior experience I feel like I've definitely grown in my ability to play the piano. She is very professional, makes me feel comfortable and is very patient! At first I was concerned how the transition to moving our lessons online would be affected but she really made it an easy adjustment. I love working with her!
