Teaching since:
2015

A native of Seattle, Christine began her musical studies as a classically-trained trumpet player, receiving her Bachelor's in Trumpet Performance from Indiana University. Moving to Chicago and collaborating with jazz colleagues led her to pursuing a master’s degree in vocal jazz. She was accepted into one of the nation’s leading jazz institutions, the University of North Texas. There she focused on her new passion for singing, honing her skills in piano, songwriting, arranging, and improvisation.

When she isn't performing, Christine has enjoyed teaching piano, voice, trumpet, and theory to students of all ages at such academies as Dallas School of Music, Frisco School of Music, and most recently, Piano Power, based in Chicago. Her greatest passion is helping students find their personal connection to music, and helping them develop the technique and skills for self-expression. Whether through teaching self-accompanying, facilitating original composition, arranging music, or using existing songs, Christine leads her students to their goals in practical, attainable ways, by instilling creative and effective practice habits.

Christine specializes in contemporary vocal styles - jazz, pop, R&B and singer-songwriter, country and contemporary worship music and uses her extensive experience to teach technique, artistry and lyric interpretation in these styles.
