Piano, Voice, Theory, Rock Band Studio Director
Christine specializes in classical and pop styles and has been teaching since 2002. She is a certified teacher with the Royal Conservatory of Music, holds a BA in Music, Minor studies in Psychology from the University of British Columbia where she received Golden Key Honour Society recognition (placing in the top 15% in academics within her faculty), and a Music Diploma (Classical) from Capilano University.
Lessons may include theory, vocal exercises, ear training, and song arrangements for multi-discipline students (piano/voice) for self-accompaniment on the piano whilst singing.
Christine has sung with The Capilano Singers, Good Noise and Richmond Chorus, the latter in Carnegie Hall, NY. She played the Changgo in the UBC Korean Drumming Ensemble. Outside of music, Christine is a host/junior producer for Vancouver Television, a mother of two, and a cyclist in the Tour de Cure (Ride to Conquer Cancer) since 2011. She is a former Miss Vancouver.
Christine believes that is important to instill a sense of equilibrium when it comes to musicianship practice: hard work with smart practicing; to be proud of success and achievements whilst remaining humble; to be dynamic, yet respectful; to find the opportunity in a challenge; and to pursue excellence. It is important to Christine that every student trusts their own ability, acknowledge their progress, and to do something uniquely great with their talent.
Christine is grateful to her most influential teachers: Gail Suderman, Heather Pawsey, Wendy Chan, Dr. Rudy, Dr. Perrino, David Vandereyk
