"I appreciate how you're not afraid to talk about the hard things."
Sarah, independent piano teacher

This self-led course is for you if:

  • You feel tired or uninspired when it comes to your approach to studio teaching
  • You've always wanted to take a pedagogy course but didn't know where to start
  • You appreciate Christina's "vibe" on the Beyond Measure Podcast
  • You are new to teaching lessons and aren't sure where to begin
  • You have been teaching for any number of years and are ready to take a deep-dive into what you TRULY believe about music study

This self-led course is NOT for you if:

  • You don't enjoy listening to Christina's voice on the Beyond Measure Podcast
  • You believe there is a one-size-fits-all solution/method/strategy for ANY aspect of our field
  • You just want someone to hand you a checklist of what you need to do to become a top-notch educator
  • You are unwilling to experiment
  • You look down on other teachers who do things differently than you
“I appreciate your realistic, personable spirit.  Every topic you have is related to where I've been as a teacher, where I'm currently at, or where I hope to be”
Monica, independent piano teacher
Christina Whitlock, Your Self-Proclaimed Anytime Piano Teacher Friend
Christina is a multi-passioned piano teacher with ENORMOUS enthusiasm for the art of teaching, as well as the art of...well... teaching HOW to teach. 

Having recently made the (difficult!) decision to hit "pause" on her university teaching responsibilities, Christina is eager to shift some of her focus to sharing pedagogical observations in the most accessible ways possible - beginning with this Studio Foundations Course!

The Beyond Measure Podcast is a project Christina is wildly proud of, and she delights in the loyal following it has found since launching in 2020. 

In addition to maintaining a large independent studio, Christina manages frequent speaking engagements, one-on-one consultations with studio teachers, and a growing list of desired contributions to this field she adores with her whole heart.

“There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning.” – Jiddu Krishnamurti
