Christi is absolutely wonderful. We are so glad we found her! My 12 year old only had two months of 6th grade orchestra before the COVID lockdown happened. She was feeling very sad as she was looking forward to learning cello! I found Christi on Thumbtack. She responded to my email within hours! I didn’t realize that she was on the opposite side of the state when I contacted her, but was so impressed with her credentials we opted to do Skype cello lessons! My daughter is happily playing her cello again, and she finds Christi to be very patient and positive! Christi is great with kids, and her lessons are structured in a way that makes learning seamless and fun. I highly recommend her!Jul 23, 2020Verified
I took piano lessons from Christi for around 8 years- all throughout elementary school, middle, high school, and I even returned while I was attending college for a bit. Christi is a wonderful person all around, and extremely talented and experienced musician. With her background in teaching preschool, as well as playing piano and cello professionally, she is a piano teacher for students of all ages! The way that she has her students practice playing makes it manageable for kids with multiple extra-curriculars, and she was usually flexible if we had to re-schedule, and offered lessons all throughout the week at many different times. While I was taking lessons, she had a nice piano room in the back of her house that was quiet and private- we were able to do my lessons undisturbed even with her 3 dogs (which she always kept away in case kids were scared, etc) Christi was always offering different types of sheet music, and sometimes would even find specific songs that I wanted to learn. She would also help me one-on-one with my concert band music while I was in high school if I needed help. I would recommend Christi to anyone I know! I had a wonderful experience taking lessons from her, I learned so much. She truly loves music and it really shows.Jan 27, 2019Piano and cello lessons with Christi's reply
Thanks for your very thorough review Melissa! It was my pleasure to work with you throughout the years....and wonderful that you came back while in college! Good luck to you!
My son just loves Ms. Christi, she makes the lessons fun but very informative. I have seen a big difference since we started coming to Ms. Christi with my sons ability to play and he has shown more excitement about playing then ever before!!!

Thanks for the review Dove! I am looking forward to the next lesson Tuesday and future lessons. I'm glad Dorian had fun!! :)
My 5 year old is a very energetic, wild but smart little guy. Christi has seen through all of that to assist him during his lessons. I am more than excited to have found herv to teach my son!Feb 6, 2019VerifiedPiano and cello lessons with Christi's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?60 minute lessons are $45. I also teach 30 and 45 minute lessons. I offer discounts to seniors as well as discounts for siblings
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I get to know the students at the first few lessons and together we pick the best books to use, and discuss future goals.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I grew up in a musical family (I used to watch my mother teach piano), I studied cello with my father, who is a professional cellist , I've played in orchestras since 4th grade, I currently play cello in church (and occasionally accompany on the piano and sing), I've taught preschool for 20 years....I am very patient and enjoy challenges....I always strive to find each individual student's learning style. I have been the chair for the piano guild in CA and in FL
