Christina began playing for church at the age of 10 and began arranging hymns for specials and offertories shortly thereafter. The more she arranged, the more she loved the process and, as a young teenager, began dreaming of the day that her arrangements would be published.
This dream became a reality in 2016 when her first collection, Praise to the Lord, was published by Piano Pronto Publishing in Temecula, California. Praise to the Lord is a collection of 10 arrangements of traditional hymns. Each arrangement was developed for church pianists to easily read and perform with minimal rehearsal time.
Her second book, Praise to the Lord: Volume 2, was published in 2019, also by PPP. This collection is for the advanced church pianist. Christina is currently working on her third collection - simplified versions of the same hymns found in Collection 2.
