Christina Adamoli is an active musician in the Twin Cities, with interests ranging from Bluegrass to Opera Theatre. In 2012, she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Vocal Performance from the University of Northern Colorado, where she performed the roles of Tytania in Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Mrs. Anderson in Sondheim’s A Little Night Music, and more.
She appeared professionally as Javotte in Manon with Opera Classica Europa during the summer of 2012, where she also performed the role of Pamina in the student production of Die Zauberflöte. Christina appeared in productions with Cabaret Otaku (Mrs. Gobineau in The Medium) and Opera Colorado (Chorus: Die Zauberflöte) during the 2014-15 seasons.
In 2017, she received her Master’s degree in Vocal Performance from the University of Minnesota. At the University, she sang Lucia in Benjamin Britten’s The Rape of Lucretia and Mrs. Hayes in Carlisle Floyd’s Susannah. During the summer of 2016, Christina performed the role of Nannetta in Verdi’s Falstaff with La Musica Lirica in Novafeltria, Italy and Santarchangelo, Italy.
Christina has taught music in group settings since 2013, where she led an introduction to music workshop for adults with developmental disabilities through To The Rescue in Parker, Colorado. As part of a summer workshop program in 2015, she directed opera scenes, coached singers, and led musical rehearsals for students of Greenwood Music Studio. Christina has studied German Lieder and Scandinavian Art Song extensively, and is currently preparing a lecture-recital for the spring of 2018 on the life and music of the female Norwegian composer, Agathe Backer-Grøndahl.
I combine a love of culture, literature, and languages in my instruction of music. I work with students to find vocal freedom and a balanced production. In my personal experience, the most effective teaching guides have been adaptable to their student’s learning needs. Lessons are tailored to the individual’s vocal development and focus on ear-training, theory, basic piano skills, breath, alignment, diction, expression, and more. I believe that a solid foundation in classical technique will allow the student to traverse any genre of musical expression. The goal in my instruction is to develop a well-rounded musician and performing artist, equally at ease on stage or at home

Students may pay for the lesson in advance, or at the time of their lesson.
If a lesson is cancelled by the student, I must receive 24 hours notice to reschedule the lesson. Cancellations that occur with at least 24 hours notice will be rescheduled. If less notice is received, I will not be responsible for rescheduling, and will still require payment (barring extenuating circumstances). In an event where I must cancel a lesson, I will provide ample notice. I will then reschedule with the student or parent.
