About Christian

My name is Christian L. and I am a 29 year old guitar/music instructor in the Orlando area. My interest in guitar began when I was 12 years old and blossomed into a full time obsession about 3 years later when I started playing small gigs as a solo guitarist playing simple jazz and classical pieces

Dylan T.
A teacher of this caliber comes around once in a blue moon. His knowledge of the guitar and music is vast and he knows how to pass that on simply and effectively. He can take you where you want to go musically if you have the dedication. My creative potential has expanded beyond what I thought was possible. I am beginning to have a real experience of myself as a musician and the unfolding of my own music through the insight of his teachings. I definitely recommend learning from him!
Joseph
Christian was super helpful and helped me get a better idea of how i want to learn. Thanks so much!
Mayra
Christian is not only a talented musician, but he is also a true guitar teacher. So far, I have taken 4 classes and I've learned more with his methods than any other way. I've had tried from the Fender Play app, YouTube videos, to other instructors, but nothing compares to his teachings. He is patient and truly pays attention to what I am struggling with. He breaks everything down piece by piece. If one way doesn't work, he tries a different way until I understand. As mentioned before, he is a gifted teacher. One thing is to be a great guitar player who teaches how to play a few chords, and another is to be a great guitar player who puts him/herself in the student's shoes and help them progress with each lesson. He is one of a kind. Thanks, Christian!

My goal as a teacher is to avoid any type of dogmatic "one size fits all" curriculum. I always want to know what music the student enjoys and build my lesson plans based on their tastes. Chords can be physically challenging for beginners so I like to work with single-note melodies early on so that the student isn't quickly discouraged. Learning chords becomes the medium-term goal. As for the long-term, I will then use specific songs as examples for how music theory works in the context of their favorite bands. I am always prepared to adjust my lesson plans based on the students progress and overall comfort zone.

About Chris

My name is Chris B. and I've been playing music for most of my life. The best lesson that I've learned is that we're never done learning. Once you start believing that you know everything there is to know about your instrument then you've stopped growing. I've also learned that I enjoy sharing

Awesome first lesson for our 14 year old daughter! She’s pumped to continue with Chris, and we’re pleased with the entire process so far.
Ron
I have been taking lessons from Chris for 5 years. He is very open to learn and teach all styles of music. in turn, allowing me learn and play music I though i never would. His guidance in "the technology" of music is also greatly appreciated.
The learning experience with Chris is top notch, never an issue with communication or punctuality.Always able to move around his busy schedule for the "adult" student.
I want to thank Chris for allowing to find my "Soul Mustard" He is the best you can find

"What I like about lessons with Greg:
1. He has a great personality and is very enthusiastic and understanding, which makes any struggles during lessons less painful.
2. He tailors your lessons to what *you* are interested in. (While teaching the fundamentals you will need to make your goals happen)
3. He is always thinking of new ways to revolutionize lessons and peoples' perspectives on music.
I really enjoyed my lessons with Greg and you will, too!"

Omar is engaging and knowledgable, combining practical guitar knowledge with bits of theory when I was interested in learning what's behind the nuts and bolts. He's flexible and open with his approach, tailoring it to my interests in music and also answering questions I had when buying my first guitar. And, he's a great guy! I would highly recommend Omar to other prospective students of any instrument."
