Taking lessons online from Christina has not slowed my progress at all. She is very patient and understanding of her students’ quirks. She never lets us forget the importance of the fundamentals, no matter how technical our exercises or music may be. I have improved more with her as my instructor than I thought possible. When I think it’s too difficult, she encourages me to just make small improvements each week. Those small moves forward make all the difference between constant improvement and the voice in my head that says “What were you thinking? Why did you think you could do this?” Also, she has a great sense of humor and is almost always flexible with lesson times. I took lessons for almost 3 years before meeting Christina and I think I was at a good place in my development for her to help me become a better player and musician.
