The Teachers

We are deeply passionate about music and the development of children. In these classes we create a fun, informal, social setting that spurs engagement and supports each child's musical development.

"Christina was a phenomenal teacher. She brought so much energy to the class and interacted well with both children and adults. She helped facilitate a wonderful music community." - Parent, Toronto ON

Teaching dance workshops at summercamps and highschool phys-ed classes, Christina is a certified Associate Member of the British Association of Teachers of Dancing. Singing from the age of 9, she picked up guitar and piano and began composing her own music. This lead to a self-titled solo EP and 2 records with the folk trio, The Lady Racers. She also lends her vocal back-up skills to the band Rocket Surgery and a wide variety of other local artists. She toured from Montreal through to Windsor playing numerous festivals and concerts meeting many of her idols along the way. Christina trained at the Music Together® headquarters in Hopewell, NJ, and is a registered Music Together Teacher and Center Director. She taught Music Together classes at a center in Toronto for a year and was over the moon to introduce the program in her home community of Kingston back in 2013! Music collaboration has been her foundation to nurture her passion and skills, and she adores sharing this joy with children and their families!
