Christina Carranza Voice & Piano Studio
I have a B.M and M.M of Music Education from the University of Redlands. I have been teaching private voice and piano lessons for over 20 years. I tailor each lesson to fit each individual student's needs. With encouragement and nurturing I can help the most timid child, or adult student grow in confidence and self-assurance.
I enjoy working with students of all ages, abilities and goals. My greatest joy is watching the process of my students develop into artistic and confident musicians.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I treat a first lesson like an interview. I encourage new students and/or parents to ask me questions about my experience and qualifications. I then ask the student about his/her music experience and goals.
For new voice students, I analyze their vocal range, sight reading and ear training skills in order to establish a base in which we will build upon. I teach voice lessons to students of all ages and abilities.
For new piano students, I analyze the student's rhythm and music skills in order to establish a base in which we will build upon. I excel at teaching younger students by incorperating music learning games into each lesson. This helps in keeping younger students excited and motivated. Most times, students don't realize that they are learing music theory while playing music based learning games!
