About Chrissy

My name is Chrissy and I have a long career as a Music Educator, as well as extensive experience in many facets of Music. In 1993, I graduated from Pfeiffer University (then College) with a BA in Music (concentrations in Music Education:Choral and Instrumental Music K-12, and Church Music); I have also taken many graduate courses in Music, In addition to 20 years of teaching Music in public schools (all levels), I have also been a Director of Music in various churches since 1989. I come from Virginia Beach, and have led several Teachers' professional development courses, re-written the Virginia State Music Curriculum for Virginia Beach, and taught many theory classes (kids and adults).

I love teaching all aspects of music and all ages. Please be assured that I am patient with students and try many approaches for the student to have success. I look forward to hearing from you!

In addition to being a teacher of large groups of people AND having a personal studio for individual lessons, I am very good at the theory/history part of Music (Music History, Ear Training, Rhythmic and Melodic dictation, Counterpoint, Music Theory etc. I also teach piano and voice lessons, as well as handbells in group settings. Part of my training also includes all Western Orchestral instruments/

I have a fairly flexible schedule in the afternoons and evenings; however, I teach in a public school during the day. Whether you need a quick review of a topic, semester-long assistance, or private piano or voice lessons, I would love to help you achieve your musical goals. Please contact me, so we can discuss your needs and get started right away!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Ear Training

Ear Training, which is sometimes called Musicianship because of the addition of sight-singing to ear training, is something I took for all 8 semesters in college. In addition, this is something I teach to my classes in school and to the various ensembles I direct.

General Music

My degree allows me to teach General Music to grades K-12, which I have been doing for 20 years. General Music is something that I have incorporated into every workshop and volunteer ensembles I have ever taught/led.

Piano

I was a Voice major and a Piano/Organ minor. In addition to frequent lessons and performance opportunities in college, I began taking piano and organ lessons in the 2nd grade (1978). I also began teaching piano lessons when I was 17 to the present (26 years).
