In addition to years of live rock singing experience, I have over ten years of classical vocal training from opera singer Jordan Ferrar. I help each student to find their own unique voice, combing healthy singing with contemporary singing styles.
About Christina B.

Openings now available for at-home and online lessons! I have been vaccinated and am following social distancing guidelines. I teach piano, voice, music theory, songwriting, and production. I love finding out what gets my students excited about music and working with their strengths! My students learn not only to play or sing songs, they also learn about the music theory behind the songs, so they can be empowered to exercise their own creativity. As an experienced performer and artist, I can also teach students about songwriting, live performance, home recording, music and video production, forming a band, and the music industry. I cut my teeth studying classical piano with an acclaimed pianist, and in high school I became a keyboardist and vocalist for one of the United States’ largest megachurches. I began to teach piano lessons while in high school. I later went on to NYC to pursue a music career, where I founded an indie rock band with a cult following. As frontwoman and keyboardist for the band, I produced four albums that were praised by magazines like Spin, Magnet, and Billboard. With the band, I toured extensively and appeared on stages with notable artists such Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Kate Nash, Nick Waterhouse, and Lucius. I also have over ten years of classical vocal training from an acclaimed opera singer, and I can help vocal students combine healthy singing with contemporary singing styles.

We do not have enough kind words to say about Ms. Christina! She is so very good at what she does and knows how to engage with a 5 year to keep their interest while offering high caliber instruction. We have had the honor to work with Ms Christina in our home since Aug 2021; my daughter has learned so much and looks forward to her lessons. Thank you Ms. Christina for being so incredible, you are truly gifted.

My daughter and I both loved our first lesson with Christina! Can't wait to learn more :)

Christina really listened to what I wanted to get out of the lessons and catered her instruction for that. She was also very encouraging and made me feel good about what I had learned on my own before starting lessons with her.
