In a fun and easy going atmosphere, I will introduce to the beginners the
Conga drum, how to play correctly and effortlessly all 7 “official” sounds on the Conga. Every class will consist on a routine of proper technique review and warming up exercises, followed by learning basic patterns.

The first couple of lessons will be always geared towards the beginner student. As the student grasped old concepts, then we will move at a faster pace to attend the needs of the intermediate level students.

The guitar has been around me my whole life. I picked it up as a hobby in high school in the late 90's and never looked back. It's become a way to express myself, share my gifts with people and also, fortunately enough, make a living. I love teaching students of all ages and interest levels; whether you just want to learn a couple of chords to play around the campfire, or work towards being a pro-level lead guitar player.

About Chris

Chris grew up hearing his dad play guitar around the house and at live shows. He “caught the bug” around age 13 and hasn’t stopped playing since! He’s been teaching guitar since 2003 and received his Bachelor of Arts in Music at North Central University in 2008 where he studied jazz, blues, rock, c

Renee
My 15 year-old son started guitar this summer. He has truly enjoyed working with Chris. Chris is patient and encouraging, as well as being a cool guy that my son looks up to.
Helen
My 13-years old son was reluctant to take music lessons. He had not liked piano (with a different instructor) when he was younger, but agreed to try guitar. Since the first trial lesson, he has been excited to learn more!

Chris is a fun teacher who knows his stuff and who communicates well with both his students and their parents. I have three kids and have found it’s difficult to find a teacher who is responsive to parents + engaging with youth + gifted at music.

His rates are very reasonable for our area. His in-home lesson space is professional and comfortable — I get to sit on a comfy couch and get work done during my son’s weekly lesson. In addition, Chris goes above and beyond to make sure the lessons are meeting our expectations. He tracked down strings for us when we accidentally broke one. He has rescheduled lessons due to our busy schedules. He is genuinely kind and such a pleasure to work with — we couldn’t be more thrilled!
Brian
Our kids have loved working with Chris. He picks songs they're excited to play, teaches them patiently, and has a lot of fun with them. They've made a ton of progress since they started with Chris, and they're always excited to see him!

As an adult, I was hesitant about learning a new instrument. Nick has been amazing at helping me learn the banjo! He is encouraging, patient, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Nick to anyone at any age.
Peter
Nick is an amazing ukelele teacher! He has been teaching my 9-year-old son for about 8 months now. He is cheerful and enthusiastic, and an undeniable talent. His teaching style is at once relaxed ("feeling" the music over strict adherence to technique), and rigorous (dropping in some heavy music theory early on). He's teaching my son to be a "musician", not just a "ukulele player". He encourages creativity and tailors the lessons to what our son enjoys. He sends a great summary email after each lesson with notes and reminders and things to work on for the next week. And his lessons even carry over nicely to how my son is learning piano. We would recommend him highly.
Josh
Nick is a great ukulele teacher. He works with my daughter in her after school program but we've also done online/virtual lessons and even I learn so much! He's fun, easy going, super encouraging and a true talent that he can see what my daughter (and I) are doing right and wrong. He's the best music teacher you can find.

Having experience for 40 years of playing guitar, I am playing the instrument by merging different style techniques like flamenco, classical, Indian and jazz. As a result, I had developed unique teaching system and study guide.

About David

As of today, I am playing acoustic guitar with musicians of local churches and congregations. In addition, I played Indian classical string instrument Veena. During the years of my exploration in styles of music, I had chance to travel with the Indian music band in Baltic States with concerts.

"I have been working with Brandon since late November 2019. I am new to drumming and having a drum teacher who is willing to come to your house to teach you on YOUR equipment. I find this to be not just convenient, but very helpful in that I find I can retain what Brandon is teaching me each lesson. Brandon is very friendly, capable and knowledgable. He has patience and never ever gets frustrated, in fact his positive reenforcement builds my confidence and keeps me engaged to continue to learn. As many folks new to drumming want to do, I wanted to 'just learn songs' and while Brandon would have done this he explained the foundational need to get the sticking, timing and coordination foundation so that we can get to my goals!

I recommend Brandon very highly. He is a nice person as well as great drum teacher. He will NOT disappoint!"
