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!
It is my pleasure to Highly Recommend, Mrs. Christi Hucks to you as a Music teacher for your children. I have known Ms. Christi for the past 5 years, she is a gifted music teacher and I can speak with confidence about her. Ms. Christi is very respected in her community, she has been teaching music for over 10 years, her teaching skills and dedication to her students are excellent. She is absolutely passionate about music and her students. She has a great sense of humor and a passion to deal with kids. Ms. Christi is exceedingly patient with all her students, she encourages them and coaxes the very best effort from each and everyone. My daughter had taken piano lessons with Ms Christi for five years and I am tremendously grateful to her for everything she has taught my daughter. It has always been a joy listening to her playing the piano for our family, and we have no one else to thank but Ms Christi! It is my greatest pleasure to recommend Ms Christi Hucks to for your music teacher. Best Regards Patricia Myers-Hines.Nov 10, 2018Piano and cello lessons with Christi's reply
Thanks for the wonderful review Pat! I really enjoyed teaching Ava and getting to know your family! I know Ava will go far
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 Lee! I love teaching your talented son and look forward to his lessons!
Christi has a calm, measured nature that is just right for my little girl. My kid is doing really well in piano so far and- even better- enjoys the experience!Aug 26, 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
