Hi, I’m Christine Smith. I have a Masters Degree in Early Childhood Music Education form the Hartt School of Music, where I studied with early childhood music expert John Feierabend. I have taught music in public and parochial schools and in the university setting for the past 25 years. I am the Program and Artistic Director for the Millikin Children’s Choir Program and direct the youngest ensemble, the Dolce Choir. I am certified in Kodaly and am the president of CILKE (Central Illinois Kodaly Educators). I am a member of Opus 24, which performs yearly with the Millikin Decatur Symphony Orchestra and Decatur Municipal Band on both oboe and English horn. I live in Decatur with my husband and two children.
