Christina opened her piano teaching studio in 2015 after the birth of her first child. Originally working on her own, she operated under the name "Christina Faulkner Music Studio." Since then, her studio has expanded to include other teachers and she decided to change the name just recently (May 2016).
Christina is currently on maternity leave until the beginning of 2017 but is continuing to run the studio's admin whilst on leave.
