Christian is helping my son get ready for an audition. He is always prompt, my son says he gives good tips and feedback, and he emails me to let me know what he needs to work on and how it's going. We'll stick with it!

We are very glad we have selected Christian, and we are very pleased with the approach he has used to teach our son. Our son is new to the trombone and Christian is very patient and appropriately communicates constructive criticism to build confidence and endurance.

I would recommend Christian for any student that is new to music.
