Expertise/Specialty: Singing Teacher for 40+ years: Voice Building and Repairing
Musical Styles Taught: Classical, Sacred, Musical Theatre
Education: BA-Vocal Performance, Music History, MM-Vocal Performance
Memberships/Affiliations: National Association of Teachers of Singing

Christie has been teaching voice for over forty years. She actively performed for thirty-eight years. She teaches individuals as well as groups. She has conducted college and church choirs. She has taught courses in Vocal Pedagogy and teaches courses in Diction for both Singers and Actors. To greater understand how body functioning can improve the voice and reduce tension, Christie studies and teaches "Body Work." Believing that communication of dramatic ideas is at the core of any successful performance, she has also studied acting, movement and performance enhancement techniques.

Each singer is a unique individual. The sound they make and the ideas they communicate are as unique as they are. My job is to help a singer find "their voice" through exercises that accommodate aural, visual, and kinesthetic learning styles. These exercises lead to healthy singing and reduce tension, improve breath management, strengthen the voice, and increase range. I am a proponent of the use of body work to improve mind/body connections. I embrace a wide range of quality repertoire in many languages and styles. I encourage and assist in my student's selection of a variety of appropriate arias and songs: sacred, secular, and popular. I believe that for a singer to reach their highest potential they must feel safe, secure, and valued. The best performances come from knowing what you do well, while continuing to strengthen weaknesses.

In addition to being a perfomer, I am also a vocal teacher offering voice lessons for Opera, classical songs, show tunes, and choral music. Will teach in homes near Rahway, NJ or at Shelter Studios in Manhattan. As a teacher my philosophy of teaching is to instruct in a positive manner which makes my students feel at ease during their lessons. I focus on what the students strengths are, and work on things that need to be addressed in a positive way. I teach students of all levels and abilities, because I sincerely believe that the purpose of taking lessons is for the enjoyment of it. Every student has a different set of goals when studying, and I am here to help them achieve those goals. What makes a good teacher is a teacher who is positive, uplifting, does not put students down, and who will make students want to keep coming back and learning more. I have learned to incoorporate those qualities into my teaching. Any time that I have gone to various teachers who teach in a positive way, I feel inspired by that teacher. It is my job to inspire students, because I want students to be turned on to music versus turned off to it. Music is a wonderful gift that the world needs, so I am here to help people enjoy it. To set up lessons please contact me at nickhay32@gmail.com.
