  • Teaches two instruments that compliment one another well.

Christine has been our Son’s violin and piano teacher for five years. It is extremely rare to have one teacher for both instruments, and she is a brilliant teacher. She is very encouraging and attentive, students who work under her will go far. She offers a beautiful studio, two gorgeous recitals a year along with her expertise and attention. We couldn’t recommend her more highly, she is truly one of the greatest music teachers ever.

As of August of 2019 I decided to do something that I have been wanting to do for many years. I started taking piano lessons. At the age of 53, I decided it was time to take one out of the old regret bin of life. My dilemma was who to go to for lessons. Obviously, my choice was Christine, and I could not be happier about this decision. Christine is what every great teacher is… Patient, understanding, kind and knowledgeable. I would encourage anyone reading this that is thinking about taking lessons to contact Christine. You will be glad you did. I am!!!

A patient piano teacher, with an ear for every wrong note, but who conveys the correct way to tickle the ivories clearly and respectfully. As an older student (aka, old fogie) who has taken piano lessons from Christine for 5+ years, I witness her outstanding patience with young students, including some 5 or 6, at the semi-annual recitals and wish all teachers shared this fine manner.

When I started lessons with Christine, my goal was to learn to play Debussy's Clair de Lune. This goal was accomplished. I've tackled pieces by Chopin, Beethoven, Brahms and the Beatles too, among many other composers.

Customer Testimonials

Violin lessons and piano lessons from Christine are world-class for the Albany, NY Capital Region. She does amazing work from beginner to advanced lessons for both violin and piano for all ages. I was shocked when I learned of her credentials and background, the level you would expect to only see in New York or Boston. Highly recommended.

Our daughter started lessons with Christine Chin at age 3. In a short time, Christine had her reading music and playing both the violin and the piano. Christine’s caring demeanor and structured lessons are perfect for young children. She really knows how to teach young kids and works to make each lesson engaging. Our daughter absolutely loves Christine and looks forward to her weekly lesson!
