Christine Jones graduated in 1995 with First Class Honours in Music from the University of Nottingham, UK. After a variety of academic and practical teaching posts in schools and post secondary education Christine was invited to train with The Voices Foundation, a leading provider of Professional Development Programmes for Local Education Authority Advisors, teachers and whole school staff development throughout the UK.
Subsequently, Christine was invited to become a tutor for the Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development through the nationwide Training Company DPG, for whom she delivered their Certificate in Training Practise with a wide client base from a variety of public and private organizations.
Christine ran many Voices Foundation 'Find Your Voice' Workshops for the general public across the UK. Consequently, she was invited to create Choral Staff L&D Programmes for business managers, looking to incorporate Arts Based Intervention within the workplace as a highly effective and enjoyable staff development tool.
Alongside her responsibility for delivering professional development training for both the education and corporate sectors, Christine maintained a private studio, with many of her voice students gaining places in the National Youth Choir of Great Britain and on Eton Choral Courses.
Christine was also very active as a choral conductor, working with various youth and adult and choirs whilst receiving musicianship and conducting methodology professional development through the annual British Kodály Academy courses and the Voices Foundation Conducting Symposia.
As a student, Christine sang with the internationally acclaimed girls choir 'Cantamus' throughout the 1980s. Following Eton Choral Courses, Christine was invited to sing with the renowned Rodolfus Choir through the early-mid 90s. Her commitment to choral development and the transformational role high calibre choral experience offers, is rooted in the incredible opportunities she had with these world class ensembles under the direction of inspiring leaders.
Christine is dedicated to the development of Interdisciplinary Choral Arts, seeking opportunities for combining choral performance with illuminating connections across art forms and fields of learning. She moved from the UK to New Brunswick with her husband and 4 children at the end of 2015.
