Have you ever wanted to learn how to play the piano? Well, your dream is about to come true! I have a beautiful Kohler & Campbell Upright in my living room and you get to play it!
When I meet a new student, my goal is first to find out your personal music preferences and goals. Then I usually start with warm-ups, exercises and scales. You get to choose from my wonderful literature of music on your path of discovery! If you want me to I'll keep records of your musical as well as your technical progress. But above all it's important to me that you have fun! So let's get started -your dreams are within reach!

About Chrissy S.

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 blessed 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! :-)

Chrissy was incredibly helpful in determining how I learn and then devising a series of lesson plans that help me learn in the easiest and fastest manner. It's been great so far and I expect to make quick progress because of her skills and personality.

Chrissy is a very competent and understanding teacher. As I wasn’t a typical student for her, she quickly changed her lesson structure and tried to cover content in different musical genres. She was patient with my progress and encouraging. I think I learned quiet a lot of information and hope to continue my lessons hopefully in the near future.

We adore Chrissy. She is a delight to be around, is very welcoming, patient, and encouraging. Her talent is very apparent and she extends that to her students with each lesson. My daughter has displayed noticeable improvement each week and looks forward to seeing Chrissy and practicing. Incorporating students' personal music likes is also very motivating- starting with scales and basic lessons and ending with a personal challenge has been very motivating to my daughter. I cannot recommend Chrissy enough. She is a great teacher!

Our time and resources were valued by Chrissy. She was punctual and very quickly assessed our son's strengths and challenges. Her rapport and ability to help our son delve into his own understanding to find the correct answer, rather than providing the correct responses herself, was refreshing; A natural teacher. We are looking forward to the next session.

I think Chrissy is the most pleasant and cheerful teacher I've ever known. She is extremely knowledgeable and well versed in the technical aspects of singing (of which I never knew there were so many). I intend to continue my lessons and would recommend her to anyone.
