About

I have enjoyed singing, dancing, playing trumpet and piano all my life.   I started taking lessons at the age of 6 and knew that I was meant to be a music teacher.   During my school years I was always involved in multiple music lessons each week.   I  attended Troy Univeristy, Troy Alabama,  for 5 years so I could major in vocal/ choral and instrumental music.    I earned my Bachelor and Masters Degrees  and have 23 years for teaching experience.   My  teaching experience include band 5th-12th and vocal/ choral K-12th.   I have coached vocal and instrumental students that successfully made All-State Band and Chorus.   I presently teach elementary music  in Montgomery, Alabama and serve as chairman of the Montgomery Public Schools  Elementary Honor Choir.  

     

Areas of Certification:

Class A Elementary-Secondary Grades P-12 Instrumental/Vocal choral music                         

 Class B Elementary Grades K-6th    Highly Qualified

Bachelor and Master Degree in Music Education - Troy University   

My teaching experience  includes  :

11 years teaching elementary music

5 years teaching vocal /choral music 

3 years teaching band 5th-12th grade.

I serve as chairman for Montgomery Public Schools  Elementary Honor Choir

Cooperting Teacher for Alabama State University   

Since 1999 each year  I  have served as the music director for Alabama Girls State and prepare a choir to  perform at inauguration cermonies.

My teaching style is to find the students' level and  favorite type of music and build their talent from those two points.  I enjoy teaching at the elementary level  because I love building a strong foundation in their music skills.  

Reviews of lessons with Christy Clark

My first trumpet lesson with Christy exceeded my expectations. I am an absolute beginner - before this lesson I still didn't know how to properly blow or produce any notes. You can tell Christy is not only a musician but also a professional music teacher. She explained me with great detail how to move my lips, my tongue, what the proper position is, how to release the air, etc. She was very patient and encouraging and I can tell teaching music is her great passion. She gave me some excercises to practice at home and I plan on continue taking lessons with her.
