in youth orchestras.
An Honor's graduate and teaching specialist,
Christine has extensive experience in English,
Welsh, Portuguese and American schools. She has
drawn on her strong musical background to create

for Music Reading, in 1999.
Christine currently lives with her family in
Virginia Beach where she continues to play and
