Personal Statement
Christina is an active professional musician in the Raleigh, NC area. She has been playing trombone since 1992, and holds a Bachelor of Music degree from East Carolina University and a Master of Music degree from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Christina's musical background is unique--she is a classically trained musician who spent many years playing trombone in punk bands!

As a young musician, Christina toured Europe and the United States performing with indie bands and jazz ensembles, and became fascinated with understanding the subtle differences and similarities among musical styles. Throughout her professional career, Christina has sought to expand her musical horizons further by performing with ensembles ranging from symphony orchestras to salsa bands to trombone choirs. Christina's current musical focus is on performing and recording uplifting original trombone and marimba music with her duo, Summerglen.

One of the foundations of Christina's career is her deep commitment to music education. Christina has taught thousands of people the joy of making music, while on tour, in public schools, and in private lessons. Christina's teaching approach centers on helping students establish good habits that can bring them a lifetime of trombone-playing enjoyment. In lessons, Christina helps students jumpstart their musical progress with problem solving and goal-setting strategies, develop solid practice habits, and gain a deeper understanding of both the trombone and themselves. This learning takes place in a relaxed, fun environment, where laughter is important and students' ideas are valued and explored!
