Collaborative pianist and teacher Christina Mathis began studying piano at the age of six

and immediately fell in love! Christina holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Piano Performance

from Judson College in Marion, Alabama (2012), and a Masters of Music Education from

Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia (2019). She is currently pursuing a Doctor of Musical

Arts in Collaborative Piano from the University of Southern Mississippi, where she studies with

Dr. Michael Bunchman.



Christina first discovered her love for collaborative piano when she began playing for

church at the age of ten. From there, she discovered a love for choral music both as a pianist and

as a choir member and also began collaborating with other student musicians. Now several years

later, Christina’s collaborative experience includes all genres from choral accompanying to

musical theater to chamber music. Christina is also a published composer and is honored to have

multiple hymn arrangements and original compositions published through Piano Pronto

Publishing.


In addition to her collaborative work, Christina also has extensive experience as a music

educator and adjudicator and is a Nationally Certified Teacher of Music (NCTM) in Piano. She

has been teaching private piano lessons for thirty years and spent almost fifteen years in the

classroom as a choral director and music educator. Her high school choirs and ensembles

frequently placed in state and national fine arts competitions. 

Christina is currently an adjunct faculty member at the Winters School of Music at

William Carey University in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, where she teaches class piano, piano

pedagogy, and collaborates with students in the voice and string departments. She is currently

organizing a program of art songs featuring both lyrics and music by BIPOC women. More

information about this program will be announced in the near future.
