About Christy F.

I teach MUSIC, PHOTOGRAPHY, & MATH

MUSIC
I am an independent music instructor. I have trained students in opera, jazz, and contemporary.

I began my piano studies at age eight and began teaching in high school. I have a Bachelor of Arts minor in vocal performance from Brigham Young University.

I have taught hundreds students of various ages and abilities and have been involved in a number of musical groups and productions, such as Opera Scenes, Phoenix Rising, Women's Chorus, and the Cincinnati Women's Group.

My instruction emphasizes a relaxed learning environment with a focus on the student's needs.

I also encourage and teach my students how to take care of their voice and body to avoid strain or injury.

What Students Will Learn:
*Sound, rhythm, and beat
*Figuring out where the notes are on a page of music
*Dynamics (such as loud and soft)
*Understanding high and low notes
*The importance of regular practice
*Following instructions
*Performing for a teacher (and an audience, in some cases)

Sources for Student Learning:
*Student books
*Handbells (for young children)
*Pictures of notes
*Flashcards
*Videos/songs that help students learn how to read notes

Performances:
*I encourage each student to find at least one opportunity to perform yearly. Whether performing for friends or family, regularly performing for an audience results in tremendous growth!

Student Books Used:
*Piano Adventures
*Suzuki
*Alfred Series

PHOTOGRAPHY
I earned my Visual Arts major in Photography from Brigham Young University.

I have run a photography business for 18 years.

I have taken pictures for weddings, engagements, senior pictures, landscapes, and family portraits.

I focus mostly on what students would like to learn.

How to manually operate a camera is a critical learning emphasis.

If applicable, we'll also talk about how to run a photography business.

MATH
With my kids, I have worked with one child who requires substantial help and another who is several levels above standard. Both have challenged me to research and learn many resources and methods to help them learn and perform math at a high level.

My goal with students is to assess their math proficiency and either help them find new ways to challenge themselves or help them learn how to be more comfortable with math and perform at an appropriate level.

I strongly believe math is critical for success in K-12 and college. My philosophy is if a student is comfortable with math, he or she will be happy at school!

Christy was really great with my two sons who have two totally different personalities and she was able to really meet them where they were at. She was really helpful for us getting set up for virtual learning which we had never done before and the system was very easy to use.

Working with Christy was amazing! Thanks to her expertise, my singing started sounding better almost immediately. Not only that, but she also helped me have more confidence in my voice so that I didn't have to be as nervous about performing. I'd highly recommend her to anyone looking to improve their singing.

Christy is a very patient voice instructor with a very good ear for technical issues in singing! I've improved in my singing and I'm very glad I signed up with her.

My first lesson with Christy was wonderful! The technology wasn't being the most cooperative, but she is an excellent teacher. My voice sounds so much better after just one lesson! Can't wait for the next one :)

Christy is an amazing instructor. Gifted, patient, knowledgeable, and inspiring. I think it would be very difficult to find someone of her caliber online or locally. She truly is a wonderful teacher and person!
