About Christina Whitlock:
Christina Whitlock, M.M., N.C.T.M. operates a bustling independent studio in Muncie, Indiana. Her studio currently offers individual and group instruction, in-person and online.
Christina earned a Bachelor of Music degree in Piano Performance from Kent State University in 2004 (summa cum laude), and completed a Master of Music degree in Piano Performance and Pedagogy from Ball State in 2006.
Christina began teaching in the private setting when she was only fourteen, and has maintained a full studio roster ever since. She is proud to be celebrating over twenty-six years of teaching at the age of 39.
Having recently made the difficult decision to leave her adjunct position at Taylor University (where she taught Piano Pedagogy, Piano Literature, and Directed the Center for Musical Development), Christina is leaning into producing opportunities for continuing education for teachers.
As an active freelance artist, Christina enjoys working with several local school districts and independent studios on a regular basis.
Christina has served on the Indiana Music Teachers Association Board of Directors since graduating in 2006, currently acting as Independent Music Teacher Forum Chair and Recording Secretary.
Christina’s speaking credits include presentations to numerous collegiate, local, and state teacher groups, as well as sessions at MTNA National Conferences (2016, 2017, 2019, 2022, and 2023) and NCKP (2023).
The podcast Beyond Measure with Christina Whitlock launched in October of 2020 and continues as a weekly shout-out of solidarity for the independent teaching profession.
Helping other studio teachers find their stride in the profession has become a strong passion point for Christina. She enjoys working one-to-one with individual teachers, guiding them in continuing education and enhanced business strategies. She also teaches Introduction to Piano Pedagogy courses for high school pianists, in addition to the popular Studio Foundations Course
