“You don’t travel to arrive, you travel to travel on.” Goethe
Having grown up in Germany before moving to the US, Christiana has always been an avid traveler. Her interest in history and architecture led her to be a tour guide in Rome and a docent for the Chicago Architecture Foundation. After teaching piano privately for ten years, she became a classroom music teacher. Besides directing concerts and musicals at the school, she loved researching music history, an activity that connected her with her colleague Lee.
During her childhood, Lee took many trips to Europe, first with her family visiting relatives in Switzerland and Austria, and later exploring on her own. Growing up with a passion for art, she went to Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan, where she completed an MFA in sculpture. For several years Lee pursued her own art and later shifted to teaching studio art and art history in New Hampshire, where she successfully instilled in her students a strong foundation in art appreciation.
For fifteen years we have been teaching music and art history together. We are fascinated by the strong connections of art, architecture, music, and history and feel that the best way to grasp this is to visit the country. We decided to do just that and share it with you! Gute Reise!
