Hi! I’m Christina.
I have helped hundreds of businesses, musicians, and educators build their presence on the web since 2001.
As a music teacher and studio owner with 20+ years of experience as a website developer & designer, I bring a unique viewpoint when creating websites for music teachers.
If all of the jargon above scares you, don’t worry- it’s my job to worry about those things for you!
Here is the rest of my story:
I studied Music Composition at Chapman University and graduated in 2005 with a BA in Music with honors. I paid some of my way through music school as a help desk technician in the IT department, until I found my passion in teaching piano, violin, and music theory at a local music studio.
After graduation, I opened a multi teacher studio with over 150 students in Irvine, California while continuing to work as a website developer and designer (at a design/branding firm, and freelance). In 2010, I relocated to Long Beach, where I currently enjoy a full studio and a growing number of music studios as website clients! It has been amazing to meet teachers from all over the world during this time.
I have always believed in volunteering. Aside from my two careers, I try to make time to give back to my community in some capacity whenever possible. In 2019, I switched gears from volunteering with an animal rescue organization to volunteering at our local children’s hospital, alongside the music therapist.
I enjoy photography, bike riding, creating new recipes, practicing musical instruments (for enjoyment!), and hanging out with my two rescue dogs, Buddy & Bebe.
