I Love to teach viola, because I love the way this instrument sounds. Everyone thinks it is just like violin but actually there is so many different way to bowing and tech from violin. My goal is make hear how viola sounds, it can actually even touching then cello and violin in some melo piece .

About Cristina H.

I am Steinway Certificated Educator and professional with 10+ years of music teaching experience. Recognized for demonstrating a natural aptitude for teaching lessons in a variety of musical instruments, as well as for charting the development of lesson plans and curricula and motivating and encouraging students, I have a verifiable history of contributing directly to student growth and learning throughout my career.


Professional focal points include spanning performance assessment, relationship management, strategic planning, ABRSM and NYSMMA exam preparation, Violin Piano Viola lessons, standards management, . Delivering superior administration on the latter areas of expertise requires utilization of effective communication skills, interpersonal skills, as well as teaching acumen, lesson analysis, and piano, viola, violin, and other musical instrument expertise to support maximum success.

Currently, I provide music lessons to students of all ages and skill levels and create lesson plans to allow for the provision of effective teaching for all students. In addition, I liaise with senior leadership, students, and various other personnel to ensure the organization’s music teaching support structure is excelling and allowing for maximum student learning and development.

Colleagues describe me as a progressive, driven, down-to-earth, innovative, energetic, and musical expert who can be relied on to provide superior music teaching to all students to allow for optimal learning and success.

My Methods:
For Beginning students or kids from 3 years old, I typically start with Hal Leonard's Essential Elements and also some other theory to help them to read the notes on staff. Once Student slightly progressed, I will begin to start shop pieces with another finger technique etude, to building stronger and solid finger and also I would recommend some music repertories to listen to it, just for building music expression.
For the Adult or Teenager, I would like to know what kind of music brings them here, and we can set that piece what they eventually want to play as a goal, and helping student build and practice the technique.


My Teaching Style:
Nothing is more rewarding than seeing one of my students develop a passion for music! Therefore, it's important that each student progresses at his or her own pace. I understand some student may not have much time to practice, so I encourage as long as you practice even once or twice per week , set a short gaol even one line two lines on the music or couple of bars, progress little and slow but practice on the right way, building right correct position and get used of it still helpful then nothing or some incorrect habit.

Such a wonderful teacher ! Christina is kind and so patient with kids who are learning music. She is so smart and her knowledge in music is amazing. My daughter has progressed significantly in the last few months with Christina , at a much better pace than all her previous years learning with other tutors. She is training my daughter for ABRSM exam too . Christina has great communication skills and always lets us know the ways to help kids learn better. Her positivity and graceful presence has made my daughters passion for music increase immensely !! Great teacher !!! Highly recommended!!

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.
