I'm an operatic soprano and and have an MM in Vocal Performance at the University of Minnesota, with a BM in Vocal Performance from the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University. In addition to experience teaching vocal technique, I have experience with English, French, Italian and German diction, and many musical styles. Pop, musical theater, you name it! It's all good. :)
I recently became TEFL-certified and have begun tutoring English as a second language as well. I try to make my lessons as fun as possible, and will organize the lessons according to your wants, needs, experience, and age!
Singing lessons typically start with a short physical and vocal warm-up, and then we move on to repertoire (selected by either myself or the student). As with English lessons, singing lessons are very student-focused--I will do my best to structure the lessons to work toward the goals we make together!
120-hour TEFL training course which covers lesson structure and techniques, as well as most common student mistakes and how best to address them.
I am always happy after our lessons and I learn a lot of new words, word groups and content.
Christine is very friendly and helpful. My singing voice has definitely improved since beginning lessons.
Christine helps me with English pronunciation. She has absolute music ear, easily catches any divergence from native language, and explains very clearly how to improve. Thank you!
Christine is an outstanding teacher. Our son loves her classes
First 3 lessons went great! Looking forward to coming lessons.
Excellent session with structured approach and way of handling. Very interesting to learn in way of conversation topics.
awessssssosome she made me great for my show
She is patient, funny and listens to you carefully. She really encourages you to be better and gets you out of your comfort zone.
So far all lessons were very helpful for me and funny too. ;-))
Great teacher. Lessons are very easy to follow.

Christine is a warm-hearted and very friendly person. I liked the 1st lesson with Christine very much and it was really helpful to me. I'm looking forward to the next lesson.
best instructor EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bad bad experience from the beginning but decided to stay with her since we paid for 12 lessons. Now 8 lessons have finished, we couldn't tolerate her any more. She gave us a few mins notice to cancel the lesson, I kindly agreed because things happen. Then we missed two lessons/ forgot about the lesson, she emailed us with very rude tone: she would cancel our lessons if we miss again. What? We already paid!+ Read More
i liked her alot
Christie is a great teacher. She teaches with enthusiasm and has great experience in the music field.
Christine is an awesome teacher. Very vibrant and patient. On my second class and she has already improved my voice. Its amazing! I'm thankful that I found her.Would recommend to anyone.:)
Great 1st lesson to get started.
You will really enjoy it!
I really appreciated Christine's direct approach and her ability to gently challenge and guide me. She's precise, astute and talented, and it was a lot of fun!
Really a great teacher. Highly appreciated n recommended
Love this class. Appreciate it very much.
She is more than wonderful! Absolutely recommend!
Absolutely love her! I took her classes for about 3 months and by the end of it I was comfortable with singing in my higher register. I've always been a belter and loved singing with my lower register, and she helped me break unhealthy habits and work on building good ones. She would never push you if she feels that is the limit for the day. I was also taking a for credit musical theatre class, and my vocal chords was exhausted at some point. She never pushed it, instead worked on my transitions instead of practicing to increase my range!+ Read More
She a awesome teacher to work to work I like her teaching and her energy I'm really happy to work with her she worth it!
Christine is an excellent teacher and gives her all! If you want to improve or begin she is the perfect choice!!! She is super friendly as well!
She's super friendly and awesome. She constantly motivates you to do better. I wanted to be able to sing higher and expand my range as a soprano. She helped me achieve that as well as helped me smoothen my singing especially in transition notes in my voice. All of course within the boundary of your voice. She'll never push you if you or her feels like that's the limit for today.+ Read More
