CHRISTY ERVAN

Christy has been giving private music instruction for 15 years and has been with Musicians In Motion for the last 7. She teaches voice, piano, ukulele, alto saxophone, and flute.

Growing up, she began singing and taking piano lessons at a young age. She used her knowledge of piano to learn many instruments and explore many avenues of music, including vocal ensembles, show choir, concert band, marching band, jazz band, orchestra, and church worship teams.

After high school, she pursued Christian ministry training. While attending Rhema School of Worship in Broken Arrow, OK, she began to teach music lessons and found her special niche of combining her love of kids and music. Christy now teaches music full time, providing private instruction, as well as directing children choirs, group classes, and general music education for a local private school and home school co-ops. She also freelances as a worship leader and keyboard player for area churches.

Christy’s teaching style is to combine solid basic skills with fun and creativity. Songwriting and performing are used to inspire students to use their knowledge and explore different aspects of music. She believes music lessons can serve an important role in developing many areas of mental and emotional well being in people’s lives. It is more than learning to perform a song, it is a journey of self-discovery.
