“Dear Chris, thanks for your expertise and engaging anecdotes during your presentation in my new course this evening.  With warm regards,”

Dwight Manning, Coordinator, Music and Music Education at Teachers College,  Columbia University


 “As both a woodwind performer and educator, Chris is the consummate professional.  Not only can she clearly articulate vital concepts, she can also demonstrate them with ease on any of her instruments.  Chris’s knowledge of the entire woodwind family is second to none, and her master classes with my college students have been among the best that I have witnessed.”
