About Cristina & Timber Studios

Teaching Style

Whether teaching children or adults, Cristina believes in a balanced approach to teaching music. Music should be a joy, not a hardship. Otherwise, what is the point? Pressure and expectations are always kept in alignment with the students goals; if you are learning music for fun or personal satisfaction, then lessons will be fun and engaging and the pace will suit the individual. However, Cristina is fully qualified to teach those who have more ambitious goals!


Cristina has taught privately from home for as long as she can remember. Whether the student started learning to play music with Cristina or came from another teacher, she has a history of successful, long-term teacher-student relationships. During and following University Cristina also worked at a music school in Brampton, Ontario, nurturing a substantial number of students up through the grade levels.
