Andrés grew up in Bogotá, Colombia, and learned from his father how to play the guitar at an early age. Andrés first studio experience was at the age of 8, and from there continued to learn music and earned his Doctorate. He also won a National Composition Contest in Colombia for one of his first songs.
Christina grew up in the Midwest United States in a Spanish-speaking immigrant family from Colombia. Her love for the stage started when her mother signed her up for theater and dance as a child. After college she worked in the classroom as a public-school teacher, and earned a Master’s in Education. When she joined 123 Andrés, she found her calling teaching through music.
Great job, Christina and Andres! You have plenty of musical and dancing talent, but also great teaching skills! The visuals (maps, written work, word prompts) were all perfectly appropriate for this age group. Your presentation showed great creativity and a lot of thought about communicating with kids and teaching them! I was very happy with both programs and very pleased to meet you!
