Cristina has had the most profound effect on Emma's voice! She brings vast experience, technical knowledge and an amazing ability to convey that to even her youngest students. In a short time after Emma began working steadily with Cristina, her voice showed remarkable improvement, which has continued to evolve in both sound and technique. By working with Emma to prepare for auditions, musical roles or just giving her experienced advice, Cristina has been a wonderful influence, coach and guide on Emma's journey of performing. She is a consummate professional.

I have watched my daughter develop as a singer and a confident young lady under Cristina’s expert instruction. The delightful consequence of this instruction is not just the thrill of watching my daughter perform on stage in school plays and community theater but also in watching her become entirely confident in front of an audience, in front of her class or in a social group. All of this, remarkably, with my daughter looking forward eagerly to every single lesson!
Few of us will become star performers on Broadway (as Cristina has) but the skill set needed to prepare to sing in front of an audience also happens to be the same skill set needed to competently deliver a presentation or a speech. It is one of the most important gifts a parent can bestow upon their child.
Cristina is a splendid instructor and can give your child an important edge in today’s competitive world. Children will quickly discover the wonders of music while simultaneously and effortlessly learning skills that will pay dividends for the rest of their lives.

After one of my first “open mic” performances, it was obvious that I needed help from a professional to improve my singing. I found Cristina’s website, was impressed by her credentials, and, somewhat nervously, arranged my first lesson. She immediately put me at ease.
She records each lesson and then emails it to me, which is a great help with practice. Her passion for music and her dedication to teaching make her a stand-out instructor and educator. Cristina seems very comfortable with different genres of music and embraces the specific songs that I want to learn to sing.
Since I began lessons with Cristina I have received numerous compliments from my musician friends about my singing, which makes me really happy and encourages me in my musical journey.

Cristina is an amazing teacher! My daughter has been attending lessons for over a year and I am amazed at the development of her singing ability and confidence in performing. Cristina has a wonderful way of connecting with her students and is supportive and encouraging. She is a very gifted singer and performer and her love of music shines through in her lessons. I highly recommend her as a vocal coach!
