As a speech-pathologist, I rely on Christine as a valued member of our community to help reduce and prevent the recurring muscle tension that inhibits the quality of life and performance abilities of my clients and patients. I've also utilized her services to help keep me in top vocal shape during vocally demanding teaching periods to offset vocal fatigue and ensure all day vocal freedom.

Competent, committed, and caring... that’s Christine Schneider. She knows well what singers complain of and how to help them. She is a total professional and it is without hesitation that I recommend her.

Joan Lader, M.A.

(Voice Therapist/Teacher)

Christine came and taught a series of self- care workshops to my undergraduate students at UArts. She's an incredibly knowledgable practitioner who is able to break down the complicated anatomy and physiology of the voice and body into meaningful information for the young performer. My students walked away from the workshop with a plethora of tools and tricks to release their own musculature in a healthy and effective way.

When I tell my singing and speech coaching clients about Christine (as I invariably do), I refer to her as "pure magic". I came to her to address TMJ and tension issues in my jaw - after only a few sessions, I no longer get migraines. She has truly changed my life and I consider her an essential part of my "team".

Casey Erin Clark

Broadway singing coach and founder of Vital Voice Training

Christine is an exceptionally gifted, compassionate and knowledgeable practitioner and an articulate, passionate teacher.
Having experienced the positive impact of Christine’s work on my own singing and overall wellbeing, I was thrilled to arrange a Vocal Self-Care workshop at my private voice studio. Exposing my students to this very important aspect of vocal/body work as an integral part of their vocal training was/is a perfect complement to voice lessons. The material covered in Christine’s workshop is vital to any singer or actor, particularly with the ever-increasing demands of high-stress singing in theatre today.

Christine clearly loves her work. She shares important anatomical and physiological information in ways that are meaningful to performers; she translates dry facts into “how this can affect you on stage”, and the heightened attentiveness in the room is palpable. Christine’s warm, encouraging presence and professional demeanor put participants immediately at ease, even as they discovered tense or vulnerable areas of their own vocal anatomy while learning new self-massage techniques. The results of various self-massaging techniques were significant; some results could be felt and/or heard immediately in students' singing that evening in the workshop, and some students reported freedom from jaw and neck tension/pain for up to several days after the workshop. All were delighted in having the new stretches or massages as additions to their warm-ups or daily physical regimens, as well.

Christine’s Self-Care workshop is a 'must have'  for any curriculum involving training for serious actors and singers. Performers gain invaluable information and self-care tools that can help them both prepare for and sustain careers as professional voice users.

Voice Teacher, SVS

Working with Christine definitely changed my artistic practice and approach to the voice as a wholistic embodied entity. Her expertise in the field answered many physiological questions that had been previously unaddressed in my vocal studies. She gave me the tools to be self-aware of tension prone areas, and a self-care routine that I continue to use on the daily. I feel like I re-learned my instrument from the inside-out, which has truly been a gift to my artistic career.

Having workshops with Christine Schneider drove me to look into my body, my instrument, in analytical ways.  The exercises that I’ve been generously taught had a profound effect on me even within a short term period.  Right when I tend to call this effect “magic”, Christine would go on to explain the intricacies of human anatomy and physiology which is her passion!  Herintimate knowledge of singers allows her to impart valuable knowledge about longevity in professional singing. Further, she’d not hesitate to refer me to trustable resources and connect me with colleagues for topics that she does not cover herself.  Overall, I’ve been much impressed by what one person can offer.
