Cristyn studied music at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama where she attained a BMus (Hons.) degree, followed by Trinity College of Music in London, where she was awarded a scholarship to study for her Master’s Degree in Music. After performing harp and piano for a UK tour with a children’s theatre company, Cristyn developed a passion for sharing her love of music with young people and obtained a PGCE with QTS in 2008. With a decade of teaching experience in both UK and international schools, Cristyn has delivered an engaging music curriculum to students of all ages and believes that music is unique in its ability to inspire and encourage self-expression. Although originally from Wales, Cristyn will be joining NAISNY from an international school in Hong Kong and is looking forward to exploring the rich world of the arts that New York has to offer.
