Hi! My name is Cristina and I am a Colorado local musician and photographer. My first passion is for music! I attained my degree in music, and I love supporting students in finding their passion for it as well. I am a patient teacher and do my best to make music fun for my students. Through my career as a musician I have become a highly skilled clarinet and tenor saxophone player. I am proficient in playing, music theory, notation, improvisation, embouchure, and sound. I have directing experience in many sectionals, and master classes supporting other musicians in improving their skills and performance level.

In addition, over the last three years I have been running my own photography business. My business focuses on empowerment portraits as well as fine art/digital art. I shoot with Nikon cameras (Nikon D3 and Nikon d750) and use Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom for post production as well as digital art creation.

I have a lot of experience shooting portraits, weddings, animals, boudoir, compositing, and creating digital art. I had photography work published in Conceptual Magazine in 2016.

I have so much to offer and would love to get you exactly where you want to be in a fun and efficient way. I look forward to supporting and working with you!

Another great lesson!

My daughter appreciated the extra time. She has been practicing with the metronome and working on the scales you assigned. We are looking forward to the next lesson! Thanks again for taking extra time with her and for making time this week Cristina!

David, 3 lessons with Cristina

Very knowledgeable and patient with me.

What I like about Cristina is her patience. And she really knows her stuff. I would highly recommend her. I am working on streamlining my Lightroom library and she has helped me organize a rather large library so I can easily find what I am looking for and at the same time easily and efficiently download new images. I look forward to working with her on editing and also helping me with actual photo work as I am having difficulty with focus. I think very highly of her.

Mindblowing!

I learned more in 1 hour than I ever have with photography! She is amazing at explaining things in detail so they make sense to the individual and she is very in tune with your specific goals.I haven't put my camera down all day. Cannot wait until my next lesson.
