Teaching and Leadership
Christy has a background in music and elementary education. She grew up in the Lowcountry, and after finishing her education as a music major, she taught in the public school systems in Tennessee and North Carolina before moving back to Bluffton. She is married with six children. Christy has had tons of experience playing sports since she was a kid. She enjoyed volleyball, basketball, softball, and track throughout middle and high school. She received a music education degree in college, which didn’t allow much time for sports, but she stayed involved with intramural sports and ran track one year. She coached volleyball during her first year of teaching. In the last couple of years, she has taken up CrossFit, running 5K’s, and enjoys staying fit with her oldest two daughters attending with her when they are able.
Group lessons are a great way to experience the instrument and decide if a student should move on to private lessons. Students get to improve social skills, share with one another, be competitive, and even be inspired from one another in this setting. Students will need their own keyboard (message us if you need help with this) and a book set. Music will be provided at first class and teacher will provide assistance with finding the correct book set (approximately $23 to start) if needed.
Receive private instruction at your level and needs. By taking private lessons your student will receive one on one instruction which is vital to quickly improving skill level. The teacher will be able to closely observe hand positions, fingerings, specific patterns, and learning style. The first lesson will assess what resources are needed.
We welcome High Tide and their popular camp-style curriculum featuring character time, devotion, sports, fitness, theme activities, group games, structured health time, and more. Quality physical education programs are needed to increase the physical competence, health-related fitness, self-responsibility, and enjoyment of physical activity for all students so that they can be physically activity for a lifetime. We strive to bring this to our students along with fun and friendships. See all classes.
