calvin so far is a great teacher I am 78 years old and have had 5 teachers so far and no luck playing the banjo. calvin actually gave me home work which I love. instead of asking me what I want to do. I would not get a teacher if I knew what to do and I love the drop box.

Online Mandolin Teacher

Are you interested in being able to confidently play lead and rhythm parts in a band? Want to learn to write songs? Want to learn to just strum along to your favorite records by yourself?

I will teach you or your child all of the knowledge and tools needed to do whatever your dream is on your instrument. My aim is to help every student achieve their personal goals on their instrument within the context of a relaxed and patient environment that promotes a love of music!

I achieve this by:

1) Individualizing lesson plans so that each student stays engaged and learns in the style that is best for them as learners.

2) Ensuring that students learn BOTH how to play their instrument as well as the theory behind what they are playing. This creates a more well-rounded musician that is capable of problem solving on their instrument and being able to play in a variety of settings.

I have been playing music for over 10 years and teaching private lessons since 2014. I ...

Chris is an excellent guitar teacher! His lesson structure and guidance have really improved my playing. He is also very responsive in answering any questions I have. I highly recommend him for guitarists of any skill level looking to get better
Brian
Chris is a great teacher! He's fun, patient, and incredibly passionate about guitar. Before studying with Chris, I was mostly self-taught, floundering for years, and not making a lot of progress. In the four months that I've been studying with him, we've touched on the blues, Motown soul, neo-soul, funk, rock, and country—all the while learning core concepts that help go beyond just memorizing songs. With every lesson, I'm feeling more comfortable and confident with the guitar. I would recommend Chris to anyone!
Zoe
Chris is an amazing teacher. He has a way of channeling technique and music theory in our lessons which are always fun. His deep love of music and versatility with so many styles is inspiring. I am an older student and because of Chris’s patience with my learning, I know he will be a great teacher for children as well. I chose Chris when I saw his photo, seeing in it the face of a warm and kind man. I was right.
