Christina Williams Woodard

Christina Williams is a native of Brenham, Texas, located outside the Houston area. Her musical interest began at an early age which derived from her parents who are both musically inclined—father on guitar, and mother, on piano. She showed an early interest in piano and like a few of her siblings (four sisters and two brothers), taught herself to play piano. Later, she began to play saxophone in the Sixth Grade band and has continued to perform with her instrument. Christina competed and won various competitions throughout her Middle School and High School years. During her senior year she received a leadership award along with the John Philip Sousa Award which is the highest award given to a High School Band member. She attended Blinn College and was a member of the jazz band. While attending Blinn College she was a recipient of an outstanding jazz soloist award at the formerly named Southwest Texas University Jazz Festival. She decided to further her musical education at Houston Baptist University. She received a Bachelor’s Degree in Saxophone Music Performance. She also has an all-level certification in music from the University of Houston. Following her years of musical studies at Houston Baptist University, she has taught Elementary Music in both Aldine and Spring school districts. While working in the Aldine district she received an Extra Miler Award which recognizes teachers who have gone above and beyond required expectations. Also, during her years of teaching with the district, she received a Teaching Experience Award which recognizes teachers who mentored high school students with an interest to become a future teacher. Christina has also directed many Elementary Music programs over the years and had a music club to encourage students to pursue their musical interests. She currently teaches Elementary music in Spring ISD.
Christina feels blessed to have performed with many great musical artists such as: Frank McComb, Bobby Lyle, Ryan Kilgore, David Caceres, Althea Rene, Dwayne Hildreth, Chris Cortez, Ken Mondshine, Bernard Pierre, Kyle Turner, and Michael Ward. Recently, she participated in the Women in Jazz series provided by KTSU 90.9. She has learned to embrace all types of music including, Gospel and R&B, but Jazz music is her passion. However, when asked the question which type of jazz is her favorite, her answer is “all of it”. “Without the beginnings of jazz there wouldn’t be other genres of music today.” She gives credit to God for providing her with the gift of music. Her inspiration comes from her family, friends, and many other musical giants. Her goal is to inspire people with her love for music around the world. Christina is currently in the process of launching her solo career which includes a debut CD featuring both original music and arrangements of her favorite jazz songs.
