Christy was very patient with my hyper daughter. It was a positive experience for us and my daughter used her piano education to expand her musical experiences to band and choir.Apr 14, 2015
Christy taught both my daughter and son piano for several years until she moved to California. She was their first teacher, and they loved her, and so did I. She has a wonderful ability to make learning the basics fun, and used both classical and modern music, so the kids did not lose interest. Due to her initial training that gave them a love of music, they both have kept up with their music through the years-Alicia playing piano and percussion in the Canberra City Band that placed second place in Australian Nationals 2 weeks ago, and Joey playing keyboards, guitar, and bass clarinet. Thank you, thank you, my friend Christy for your influence on both of them!!!!Apr 14, 2015
Christy was an awesome piano teacher!! And she has a beautiful voice, too!! She helped me learn to play the piano and appreciate playing by helping me to learn songs that I chose, songs that I enjoyed singing and music that would challenge me, but not frustrate me to the point I didn't want to play anymore. Christy was very patient, calm, positive and kind - even though some days... I'm sure she knew I hadn't practiced!!! :) Christy was always on time, prepared and smiling!Oct 1, 2014
I took piano lessons with Christy for nearly 7 years. I learned not only how to play the piano,but also about music as an art. She was always encouraging, honest, and taught in an easy and understandable manner, especially for a child. I would recommend Christy for anyone wishing to learn to play the piano with a comfortable and diligent teacher.Aug 19, 2014

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge by the half-hour, but often give 5-15 extra minutes as my gift of time.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I will email you with a student attendance and tuition policy and set up a lesson time for [parents and] students. I'll buy the first set of books (so you have the appropriate ones) and you pay the cover price plus tax at the first lesson.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?20 years of private piano and organ lessons, including university music education major. My mother was a piano teacher (my first teacher), and I often checked student homework books or taught as substitute for her when she was ill. I've been a church musician since I was nine years old, and have accompanied soloists, choirs, congregational singing, etc., since 1976, and have played preludes, offertories, postludes, and "special music" on solos countless occasions. In addition to piano and organ solo work, I've spent years playing in contemporary praise teams.
