About Cristina H.

I am Cristina, Violin Piano Music teacher, recording artist and educator. Classical trained from Piano and Violin when I was 5 and switched to viola after high school.
I earned Advanced Certificate and Music Performance Master degreed from New York University where I also teach private lesson as an adjunct. I had also performed at major music festival such as in Norway, Czech Republic and Korea.
I have taught students of all ages from 3 to teenager and adults. and have prepared students for ABRSM exams, NYSSMA exams, specialized middle school and high school auditions, pre-college programs and other auditions. Of course, I have also taught students who are learning just for themselves from reading sheet music. I like to teach students the method and tip to practice, and encourage student challenge something new techniques , and most important is expression from music.
I love to help students to reach their goal or giving them practice tips. Have fun with music.

My son has been taking lessons from Cristina for 2 years and wow has he progressed. He loves his lessons, can read music, and is playing well. The struggle is getting him to practice! Cristina has a great blend of warmth, knowledge and discipline that works well for my 6,7, and now 8 year old son. I highly recommend her.

Our 8 year old had been taking violin for two years and was about to the point of quitting due to the lack of motivational teaching. I went in search of a teacher that could motivate her while still progressing rapidly each week! My daughter is so eager to please Cristina, because she makes the lessons fun and interesting. When I check in to see how the lesson is going, my daughter is engaged, and answering questions correctly which tells me she's still paying attention - even in the evening hours when she's tired. Cristina mixes classical and popular music as well. I still have to ask my daughter to practice each night but she pulls out her violin on her own a couple of times a week as well. It's a complete 180 from where we were 8 months ago. Cristina is a rare find and I'd recommend her to anyone who wants to ensure their child is getting the best violin training while being inspired!

Our 11 year old daughter, Drew, started with Cristina for a little over a year, and has made some amazing progress from not knowing how to play, to having great intonation and musicality. Cristina teaches our daughter in a way that works with her interests and learning style, rather than having a regimented curriculum. I think this has allowed Drew to be way more excited about playing.

i've been playing music all my life but since i'm a square parent, it's hard for me to teach drew :) Cristina does a great job giving her guidance during the lesson.
i would highly recommend her as a teacher!

I started taking piano lessons this past year as a gift from my musically talented mother, and found Cristina through research online. For the months that I took lessons with her she was incredibly talented, patient, kind and understanding when I wasn't getting certain notes. I couldn't recommend her enough whether you are beginning or advanced. Sadly I am moving away from NY so won't be able to continue lessons with her, but if you are looking for lessons.

Cristina is an amazing teacher as well as a very inspiring one. She is a great communicator and will work with you at your speed and comfort level. Very out going and attentive teacher! Great with teaching me how to handle my violin, teaching me proper technique(s) when it came to my sound overall, and many other things within only an hour of time! It was a memorable experience overall. I am definitely looking forward to my next lesson ♡

My daughter had violin lesson with Ms. Crisitna since 2017
my daughter start violin from school and seems has some difficulties that school teacher doesn't have much time help one to one.
So we start having private lesson outside,and Ms Crisitna has helps my daughter fix a lot foundation and build solid skill to apply on school songs. Which is good way for long term playing.
