Broadway is more vocally and stylistically demanding today than it has ever been. Musicals like A Gentleman's Guide To Love & Murder, Chicago, Wicked and Rent all require the singer/actor to have the vocal versatility to audition for as many roles as possible.

Whether you’re a seasoned professional singer/actor looking to expand your repertoire, or an amateur singer/actor who wants to sing more effectively, studying with Ms. Christine will give you an understanding of Broadway Singing.

My course will develop your technique and skills in Broadway singing so that you'll be comfortable with almost any audition you may encounter.

About CHRISTINE G.

"It's not just about creativity. It's about the person you're becoming while creating." This quote epitomizes my teaching philosophy concisely. My mission is to raise my students’ artistic confidence, grow their skills, and teach them to enjoy the art-making process while building integrity and good character.

I started performing on stage at the age of four years old. I began formal private lessons in voice and acting at the age of 10 at The Newark School of the Arts and at The Children’s Theater Workshop in Essex County, New Jersey. As a young teen, I also began directing and leading the youth and adult choirs in church. As a result of my commitment to my craft, I had numerous opportunities to perform and record as an accomplished artist throughout the United States and abroad.

As an international performer, my credits include touring throughout the country of China as a lead singer for the state of the arts Thai City Theater. Other recent credits include working as a lead production singer for the renowned cruise line, Carnival; sailing the Western and Eastern Caribbean islands performing Las Vegas-style production shows.

I am currently the CEO of my own entertainment company 2-4-1 Entertainment and mobile music school. I perform regularly for various commercial establishments and private venues. I studied Music and Theater at Montclair State University earning a BA degree along with a teaching license in performing arts.

The overall goal of my teaching philosophy is to cultivate independent and critically thinking artists. I want to produce well-rounded individuals, instill a lifelong love of music and theater in every student, and create an effective performance medium in which students will grow not only musically, but also personally and professionally. Through these principles, I strive to become a key mentor in their educational journey.

*** Lesson Details ***

If you love singing, then you should love your lessons. Lessons with me are fun, challenging as well as enriching.

Instruction will include:

-Light stretching exercises to reduce tension and relax muscles that can block good vocal production and vocal freedom.

-Carefully listen to, accessing and giving you feedback about your vocal potential and growth

-Identifying vocal range and limitations

-Proper vocal techniques with respect to vocal scales, learning to breathe, pitch, tonality, durability, and posture

-Selecting music collaboratively that suits your tastes and ability

-Working with professional backing tracks like many contemporary artists in the industry

-Lyrical interpretation with respect to performance

-Sharing the understanding of vocal anatomy and how it affects singing

-Allowing you to record lessons for practice purposes.

-Comfortable environments where asking questions are encouraged and making mistakes are simply part of the learning process.

-Teaching and practicing good vocal health, including the need to drink water and monitor the speaking voice

-Building confidence as a singer and performer

As much as I love teaching and building relationships with voice students in my studio, I do not believe lessons should be limited to the classroom. The training process may include performing small venues for family and friends to acquaint the student to performing in front of an audience.

My goal is to teach students who have a desire to perform, the necessary rudiments of singing and performing so he/she can go out into the world and shine as a polished singer!

I reviewed many teachers over days before I chose Christine as my piano teacher. After watching many videos and reading testimonials, she was the obvious choice. Playing piano had been a lifelong dream since I was a child and I thought playing at this point in my life would be very difficult. Christine is not only patient and a very good teacher, she is a great person. We enjoyed many lessons together and I learned a lot (more than I thought I would). She remains my first choice. When I am able to return to my lessons, she will be the only choice. Thank you Christine. I miss you already.

I took singing classes with Christine for over 2 months and she was an absolute joy to work with. She was very thorough with her lessons and always made sure I was ready before moving on, and was fantastic at encouraging me and giving actionable feedback. After only 2 months of lessons, it's very obvious that I have improved dramatically. I can't recommend taking lessons with Christine enough!

GREAT GREAT GREAT! Class started on time. Always had a smile on her face and made my daughter feel so comfortable. First class was to asses her range and outline what was to be expected during the lessons. Gave her things to do during the week to practice, like warm ups and vocal exercises. Looking forward to the next classes! Excellent!

Ms Christine really is called to teach. I can say this, based on my experience with her. She has several unique teaching qualities. For example, she is an expert at breaking singing concepts down so that they are easliy understood and more importantly, easily applicable in practical terms. I have experienced a lot of 'a ha moments' with her. She has helped me understand the technicality of my voice better. I know how to use my voice better, how to control my breath, how to apply my breath in singing to get the sound I want, and so many other things.

I brought my child who is currently 10 years old to strengthen her singing voice about a year ago. Within a very short span of time, my daughter developed a stronger singing voice and vocal range. She has good diction and more importantly she has CONFIDENCE.

This may sound odd, but lessons with Ms. Christine has helped my child deal with bullying at school. She now believes in herself and not afraid to sing and let her voice be heard. I'm so proud of my child and can't thank Ms. Christine enough for believing in my daughter. Thanks a million :)

This was my first vocal training ever, and I am so glad I had Christine for an instructor! As soon as I signed up, Christine called me, introduced herself, asked me questions regarding my experience in singing, goals, and discussed other areas concerning the training. I lacked confidence in singing, especially singing in front of others. I was also experiencing vocal fatigue and hoarseness due to incorrect singing and inadequate breath support. Christine educated me on my vocal anatomy (which is very important for signers) and went out of her way to give me additional diagrams and aids to assist my developing strong, correct, vocal techniques. She has an incredible, can do, personality that I needed and made me so comfortable. She is passionate about training students. She has a great ear for tone and pitch, and her style of teaching is built around being patient, positive, and other attributes that make learning fun. Christine is determined to help you meet or exceed your goals. I am so grateful that I met Christine!

I have had not less than 10 voice coaches over a period of 15 years and not one single one of them is as thorough as Christine. I had my first lesson today and what impressed me the most is that she's started me how to apply vocal exercises to an actual song. She is also a fantastic communicator who is very good at breaking down complex concepts. She is very humble ....a trait thats hard to find these days. I enjoyed the lesson and she made me feel at ease. She really does know her stuff . I learned a lot today ... She really is a gifted teacher.

I'm a praise and worship singer, I really love singing for the Lord. But in most churches you get a lot of shouting and yelling and can cause vocal damage. I didn't want to be "that singer." So, I started studying voice under Ms. Christine. Boy! Did I get a good understanding of how the voice works. What to do and what not to do. Thanks so much for your knowledge and your compassion for singers like me!

From the first day I signed up with Ms. Christine, she called me and started asking me questions about my musical goals. All the music classes/lessons I've taken, no one has ever asked me what was important to me musically speaking.

I knew from the initial conversation, there was some "special" about this teacher. It wasn't just the subject of music but Ms. Christine's passion to give and share the gift of music. She explained her music course and her expectations of me as a student. I was given my 1st assignment before we even got started working together face to face.

This woman takes her craft very serious and I highly recommend Ms. Christine to any serious singer.

I have worked with Ms. Christine for over six years, and she has been an invaluable member of our school. Christine is an excellent music teacher. She is aware of a variety of approaches to teaching music, and is constantly broadening her musical talents. She has worked to create interdisciplinary experiences as well, by integrating song, instrumentals, and dance with literature, through performances for the school.

She enjoys children and brings wonderful excitement to their music experience. She creates relevant lesson plans and incorporates movement and other modalities into her music lessons. If you walk into a music lesson, students are moving and making music! They are engaged!

I highly recommend Ms. Christine.

I feel so honored to speak on the behalf of Christine, she has truly helped me with my own small business. I'm a professional real estate agent that enjoyed good old fashion family fun, which includes karaoke. I was never a singer, but always enjoyed singing. I figured it was worth an effort to take a few lessons with Christine and see if I liked it. Well, I loved it!

I've been enjoying music and singing every since I started taking lessons with Ms. Christine. I now give monthly dances and include karaoke with prizes; I'm a featured singer/host and it's been WONDERFUL. Never would have thought voice lessons could bring so much meaning to my life.

I love my lessons with Ms. Christine! I always wanted to be a "better karaoke singer," but I never thought voice lessons were for people like myself. I was under the impression that only "serious singers" could take voice lessons.

Until I faced my fears, sent Christine an email and asked if she would be willing to show me a few things about singing. She was so warm, and welcoming I just had to meet such a nice woman.

I realized, this was all in my head....my lessons not only taught me about music but it taught me how to love "all" of me including my voice. I'm so grateful to Ms. Christine, thank you for all your inspiration and support!

She listens to your goals, gets to know exactly what you need and devises an approach that gets you in your way. I really enjoy that she is in touch with popular music and understands the business. DidnInmention she can SING??!!! Omg...My only complaint is that I didn’t study with her years ago!!!!
