In Teacher Studio
My name is Kristin Phillips. I have been playing the piano since 1994 when I took my first lesson just before turning 7, and have been teaching since 2003. I absolutely love what I do, and am looking forward to the opportunity to assist you in your music goals. It is forever my desire to encourage my students, share my love for music with them, and help students develop diligence, joy at their instrument, and the amazing skills that will carry over into every area of life - while providing them with a joyful, peaceful, and gentle approach to studying music.

I love you, Kristin. You're the best piano and voice teacher ever. :)
I like my teacher, Kristin, because she teaches me very well. She is also very kind. Se has taught me all the note names and how to play great!
Kristin is an awesome teacher! Her dedication to her students and her studio is to be applauded. She is a blessing to all of her students.
It has been great to watch our daughter’s progress after just 1 & ½ years with Kristin. The recital is well put together and it was a pleasure to watch all the students perform. The choir class was also a wonderful addition to studio lessons.
Josh's playing for worship at church went wonderful. He is so excited and practically lives on the piano practicing the worship songs. We just love hearing him play them and it is going to open up new avenues at youth group for him. Thank you again for being such a great influence as a teacher for Josh. We are so happy with how far he has come in a short time.
Kristin is GREAT. Avalon and I love her and appreciate all she does!
Kristin's music-teaching style is fresh, with creativity and energy! She puts all her effort into best teaching her students. Thank you for the blessing you have been to my kids!
Kristin is a wonderful teacher! She is kind and encouraging. Even when I make mistakes, she doesn't laugh, but instead helps me fix them non-confrontationally. She conducts herself with professionalism and is very organized. Her love for teaching shows in everything she does and her dedication to her students is a testimony to her love for music.
Kristin's website clearly shows that 'simple is better'. I've noticed many sites where the designer spent more time on the 'look and feel' rather than the content. While the site doesn't have any fancy animations or effects, it's still pleasing to the eye, and finding the information you need is extremely easy. Kristin displays an incredible amount of enthusiasm and passion for what she does; and not many "older" teachers have that. Young people are certainly lucky and blessed to have her for a teacher.
Kristin is an awesome pianist. She has been playing for many years and is very skillful and artful at playing. She composes her own music, writes her own songs, and is very good at it. She is respected by many, she is determined, reliable, kind, considerate, organized, and friendly. Kristin has been serving God for many years with her piano, literally touching many people's hearts with her music. It is definitely a good investment to have her teach you or your family.
Kristin is a great teacher because she understands how much encouragement and praise helps to teach.
Great job as always.
Wonderful! I was at the last recital and I am so impressed with all the kids’ improvement. You are obviously a great teacher and good role model for these kids. Thanks for caring!
I find Kristin to be highly organized and accomplished. She has a wonderfully positive attitude and is the perfect teacher for all ages of people – particularly those of us “over 60”!
Kristin is a fantastic music teacher, encourager to students and a wonderful role model! She is a blessing to our family.
