Teacher Feature: Kristina M Seelert
The Music Abode is excited to introduce a new piano teacher! We would like to welcome Kristina Seelert to our lineup of teachers and announce that she is taking on new students!
Kristina has a wonderful teaching history, and has been a piano teacher for 6 years. Kristina is a classically trained musician who holds her Associates degree in Fine Arts. She has a very well rounded education which included emphasis in music and arts education. She recently moved to Orange from Rancho Cucamonga where she was a teacher at a studio and also taught private lessons. She also plays with Cumbia and pop bands as a keyboardist performing live and traveling to great performance venues in Southern California.
As a teacher she loves to keep her lessons fun and exciting for her students. “I like to get on the same level as my students,” Kristina says, “I want to connect to them and their life and make music fun while still focusing on theory.” She finds ways to engage her students and make the lesson an exciting time while not forgetting her classical training and making sure that music theory is at the forefront of her lessons each day. A famous quote that best exemplifies her passion for teaching comes from Victor Hugo, “Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent.”
Kristina also loves working hard and doing exciting physical activities. She enjoys rock climbing and hiking and is a volunteer for the Auxiliary Coast Guard.
Kristina’s schedule will no doubt fill up extremely quickly what with her immense experience and passion for teaching! Don’t miss out on the opportunity to learn from a wonderful musician who is an insightful and down to earth teacher.
