Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been teaching privately at my home since 2008, I also teach at the Sound Garden music school in High Barnet every thursday afternoon.
Between 2013 and 2014 I was teaching piano and keyboard at the Saturday Music Centre in Houndsfield Edmonton N9 7RA every saturday morning.
Between 2012 and 2013 i was teaching 1 2 1 classical guitar lessons to children from the age of 8 in a church in Colindale, London
Between 2009- 2011 I was teaching in a private school called Umbrella Music mainly teaching classical grades ABRSM to groups of up to 2-3 children at a time.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

YES

- Where and with whom did you train?

I'm currently training on classical and Jazz piano with the wonderful talented Jazz pianist Kate Williams.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Theme Music

- Tell me about some of your current students.

All my current guitar and piano students are working on their classical grades, I find it the best way to learn even if students don't actually take the exam.
It is definitely the fastest and most thorough way to learn to play guitar properly.
Often people want to skip the initial stages and decide to learn without grades and though it does seem the quickest way it's not usually the best as it leaves gaps in ones technique and understanding of music.
I often prepare students for auditions and exams mixing SLS and diaphragm breathing Bel Canto techniques.
I use a combination of Vowel/Consonant exercises like the ones used in SLS ( speech level singing) to balance the voice and extend the l range in healthy yet effective way.
I'm qualified to teach either classical, mainly following the ABRSM grades or pop / jazz and soul singing using the trinity and guildhall Rock School Grade program or simply working on vocal coaching with students.

Nikki

My name is Nikki Jamal. Singing has always been my biggest dream. But I needed to take vocal lessons so badly. I found out about Cris online and very soon she started giving me vocal lessons. I think she is the greatest teacher i've ever met in my life and I have the biggest respect for her to help me sing. Cris helped me get prepared for the national selection for Eurovision Song Contest 2011 and finally i became a winner of Eurovision Song Contest 2011.

Having classes with Cris helped to get the lead role in "Threepenny Opera" that's going to tour the Uk from February until March. It will be the first time that I will be in a Musical, and one of my favorite pieces of Theatre. in two sessions of forty minutes each, and with her strict professional spirit, she gave me confidence and explained me via exercises the best way to explore my voice. I am very grateful to have her as a teacher

Cris is a very positive and interested tutor who is flexible enough to tailor her lessons to the unique requirements of her students. In my case it was to build a karaoke business and encourage and nurture new singers myself as well as overcoming stage anxiety. Cris has helped to address this latter problem and of late I have been performing at live venues with just lemonade. And I don't sound too bad either!
All together, good value, fun and rewarding
