I am primarily a composer, guitarist, tenor, pianist and percussionist and I love sharing what I have learned with others and watching my students develop and grow. My goal is to teach my students until they are better than me, so I hold no secrets, tricks or techniques back and I devote my time and energy to help others become the best musicians, artists and people they can be.I have a BA in music composition and a BA in music history, both from California State University, San Bernardino. I play the guitar, bass, piano, drums, orchestral percussion, mandolin, ukulele, banjo, recorder, harmonica and didgeridoo with varying levels of proficiency and have experience in music theory, songwriting, recording, MIDI, arranging, singing (contemporary, broadway and opera), and acting/performing. I have performed in The United States, Austria, Spain, Australia and New Zealand and have 13 years of experience, development, mistakes and successes to offer my students. I love learning new things and have been teaching as a profession since 2007. I am also First Aid & CPR certified, Live Scan fingerprinted, FBI background checked, Safe Environment trained and a Child Abuse Mandated Reporter.
*** Lesson Details ***
I do not use a set curriculum. I prefer to discuss goals and music with my students and their parents to determine what genres, styles and techniques they are most interested in. I then use techniques I have gained through experience along with songs and classical exercises to develop strong technique, a developed ear and the ability to read music. I do expect students to be disciplined, practice regularly, and be prepared for lessons, enabling them to expect the same from me. Whether a student wants to be a classical virtuosi or learn how to play a song they heard on the radio, I will keep the lessons fun and interesting for anyone willing to practice and learn, and I will always to my best to cater to the student's individual needs and goals.
*** Studio Equipment ***
I provide all copies of music, handouts, exercises, etc. Students are expected (when applicable) to have an instrument in good, working condition.

*** Specialties ***
I form all of my lessons around being able to learn, memorize and play songs, read written musical notation (along with sight-reading & technical exercises), and improvisation (based on scales and exercises).
For guitar and it's relatives (bass, mandolin, ukulele, banjo) I can teach any style or genre of music, including modern tapping techniques, and I also teach TAB notation.
I teach both classical and popular piano, usually combining classical sight reading exercises while learning both classical and popular repertoire.
I have experience acting and singing on stage in both non-musical and musical productions, as well as five years of classical vocal experience singing in high school and collegiate ensembles. Being in these environments has equipped me with the tools and exercises to be able to teach everything from basic singing to fundamentals in broadway and opera.
I also have a small studio in my home where I write and record, providing me with the opportunity to also teach recording, songwriting and music theory.
I have been teaching foreign languages (Spanish and ESL) for three years in various settings, whether that be 1-on-1, a small group class or a large lecture hall in various places (Spain, Peru, the US) and settings (elementary, high school and college). I seek to identify your needs first so I can adapt a specific strategy to tackle your learning goals so you may succeed in the subject.

Welcome! My name is Christopher S. and I am a classical guitarist, song writer, and experienced music teacher. I began learning music when I was nine on the piano however by the time I turned twelve I discovered my passion for the guitar. I began by learning songs and playing in band with some of my school friends. This was the start of my journey into music. I started with blues, rock, and pop music but I quickly moved into more complex genres such as funk and Jazz music.
In college I began my studies of the historically endless and huge world of classical music. This is also when I began teaching and taking students of guitar. I studied classical music at Hofstra University and completed my degree at Humboldt State University in Northern California. After earning my degree I began working as a music and guitar teacher. I taught classical guitar at a summer camp called Long Lake Camp for the Arts and later I moved back to my home in Vermont. I was hired as the music instructor at a private music school called the Upper Valley Rock School. There I gave group lessons and private classes in guitar, bass, drums, piano and recording equipment. I have had experience teaching to kids ages 5 - 17 and to adults of all ages.
After working and saving up some money I realized that in order to better my skills and become the guitar teacher I wanted to be I had to travel abroad. I moved to Seville, Spain where for two years I studied the art of classical and flamenco guitar. I studied with a world renowned professor named Francisco Bernier at the Conservatory in Seville for two years and gave private guitar lessons to beginning classical guitarist part time.
Recently, I have been accepted into a Masters of Music program at the New England Conservatory and I am moving back to the US after three fantastic and culture enhancing years in Europe. I will be studying with the worldly recognized guitarist, Eliot Fisk. While in Boston, I will be accepting and taking on new students who are passionate and eager to learn classical and fingerpicking guitar. If you are interested in taking a lesson please contact me and we can set up a lesson time and begin learning the art of making beautiful music on the guitar! I teach all levels from beginners to advanced. Thank you very much and I look forward to hearing from you!
