Offering in-home and in-studio lessons in the Chicago area, for Ages 3-Adult.
My greatest passion is helping students find their personal connection to music, and helping them develop the technique and skills for self-expression. Whether through accompanying, facilitating original composition, arranging pop music, or using traditional literature, Christine leads her students to their goals in practical, attainable ways, by instilling creative and effective practice habits.
For young pianists: I use both the My First Piano Adventures series, and the Wunderkeys series. I believe in the power of play for young students. Games, singing, off-bench activities and stories are all part of piano lessons!
For intermediate pianists: Technique, theory and book work are all important, but I strive first to make piano about the music. What does your child listen to? I make appropriate arrangements of what students love to keep them practicing and engaged.
