                Instructor BioChristine Remski is a proud Explorers alumnus who has dedicated much of her time to her life’s passion of music. After a year of intense music education studies at Concordia University Ann Arbor, she has been in several choirs over a span of ten years, many times being a lead soloist soprano at both her church choir and in her time with Concordia’s Women Chorale. She has been a part of several musical productions and continues to take voice lessons. Christine has a firm belief that when approaching musical studies with children, it has to be kept fun but also informative enough so that they walk away knowing more at the end of the class. She is currently working on finishing her Associates Degree in Fine Arts and Performance at Washtenaw Community College.
                Additional InformationChristine Remski is a proud Explorers alumnus who has dedicated much of her time to her life’s passion of music. She studied music education in her first year at Concordia University Ann Arbor after high school, and since then has been a part of several choirs and sings many Sundays as a soloist in her church. She has been a part of several musical productions and continues to take voice lessons weekly. Christine enjoys teaching early theory the most because she believes the earlier they learn it the more they retain, as it aids for future musical endeavors whether it be singing or playing an instrument.

                DescriptionEach lesson will be
                a private, weekly, 30 minute tutoring session where students will receive individualized instruction, feedback and practice on their instrument. Students will benefit most if they commit to 15 - 20 (30 for older students) minutes of daily practice of assigned
                work. My goal is to create a comfortable, fun environment where students feel free to make mistakes and learn from them, hopefully avoiding too much frustration which can lead to discouragement and quitting.

                I will choose appropriate
                materials needed to be purchased throughout the semester and school year.
