My piano lessons have been enlightening and I look forward to my time with Christie each week.Feb 4, 2018Verified
Christina is amazing at teaching our son piano! She is so patient and encouraging with him. Our son is not the type of kid to be able to sit and focus on a task like that for very long, but with Christina’s kind encouragement and teaching ability he could sit for hours working on his songs with her.Aug 30, 2019
I loved my lessons! As an adult, I didn't always have time to practice as much as I should, but Christie was always patient and supportive. I learned so much, and gained a confidence in my ability to read music and play well.Feb 20, 2018
Great communicators with a positive impact. Our student has learned so much, he said about his studies, “It’s really cool when it starts to sound like music.”Aug 29, 2019
Austinburg Music Academy meets all my needs for musical education. The teachers are friendly, knowledgeable and very professional. While I am free to advance at my own pace, I’m always encouraged to develop the habits sure to maximize my growth. That gentle push is propelling me to new heights in my musical skills which I had not considered possible before signing on with AMA.Feb 1, 2018

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We arrange a time and begin with a free consultation lesson to talk about the student's goals. We plot a course for how to get there. We go over any needed materials (music books, instrument accessories, etc.) and make sure the student's instrument is in good order. Then we get started.
