Here’s what some former students have said about her teaching techniques:

"I've attended other workshops before, but none as thorough as Christina's classes." Andrew Jackson [Studio Professional and Talent]

“It's so hard to find a safe, but challenging environment. Pushing me out of my comfort zone but in a supportive environment is what I look for in a class, and I felt that your class really delivered!” Laura Jones [professional Voice Talent with TMG Salt Lake]

“Chris is the kind of teacher that recognizes her student’s talents and supports them in their business. I went to her for a private lesson. Ten minutes after I left her office, I got a call to come back and audition for a radio spot. I booked the job. Thank you Chris!!” Sandy Tieman [professional Voice Talent with TMG Salt Lake]
