Christina has been singing and performing since her early teens. After performing professionally for ten years, she started her voice studio in 2007.
Christina's unique background helps her train successful singers. A proud geek, Christina holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Her science and engineering training help her understand the science of singing. Her performance career and choral directing background help her understand the more ethereal aspects of vocal performance, allowing her to express them more concretely to her students. She blends artistry, experience, and technology to help her students uncover their best singer.
Christina enjoys arranging and composition, and she specialized in these areas at Berklee College of Music. As a long-time educator, she knows how to make a potentially dry topic such as music theory into a fun and interactive experience. She enjoys incorporating music production into her lessons so her students can see immediate results. Her novice students do not need to be heavily versed in music theory to achieve success, but her more advanced students gain exposure to various tools and ideas to help them grow musically.
