Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

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 taught about two dozen lessons a week for the better part of 10 years; from age 8 to retiree, beginner to advanced, hobbyist to college-prep or gig-ready. He specializes in blues, rock, improvisation, ​and songwriting. What he loves most about teaching is being able to pass on everything he has learned and continues to learn in his 20+ years as a musician, helping students take step after step to achieve their musical goals. As an active musician, Chris has been the lead singer/songwriter/rhythm guitarist for a local rock band and has performed/recorded as the lead guitarist for a number of other bands/artists.

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!

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I’ve developed a unique approach to understand the guitar and bass. Whether someone is a beginner or even advanced. I’ve found a way that gives new insight to the instrument.

Even those who are advanced have commented, “My playing has gotten so much better – people are complimenting me on how much I’ve improved.” and… “You’ve really opened up the instrument to me.” One former student who had been playing 50 years prior to coming to Oslo Studio said, “I’ve learned more from you in the past 6 months than my last 30 years of playing!”

I’ve learned a lot from my students as well. Due to my open style of teaching. I’ve designed alternate ways for students to learn their instrument.

When I started teaching I was pretty set on each student having to learn how to read music. However, I found not everyone had this desire. This has led me to design different ways to learn music. I teach students ways to understand where the notes exist on the neck by reading chord charts and seeing ...

One thing about learning guitar.. it's alot like life.... As u learn guitar with me, I not teach guitar but I also relate it to life... Life is painful and at times in life one cannot get to the next stage without learning and learning lessons gets painful... For example for one to learn to be strong they may endure hardships to achieve it...same with guitar...it can be painful... Toughing the fingers and no pain no gain...also...why can't learning be fun... Most dropouts quit their progression because of boredom.... The main goal for my students is to keep them interested and also give them good leadership with advice through with the example of music...ok...NOW LETS ROCK!!!

About Gregory

Hey why not decide to feel the best feeling on earth.... I'm not gonna say more and spoil the surprise just want u to know that deciding to learn guitar is the way to unleashing super powers in more than one way you know... Only way to know what I'm texting is to find out...cause it's so outta this

"Kevin is a born teacher. Coming from traditional classroom teaching, that ability to communicate translates well to the classroom. He is very patient with his students and communicates exactly to their level. I would recommend Kevin for a way to take your music to the next level. He excels on several instruments and could even help you write your next song."

"Chris was such a great instructor! I first started lessons with Chris a few months ago and I told him I only had a limited time to learn guitar. Taking the knowledge I already had with music, Chris helped me in only a few months to pick up and to be able to jam to some awesome songs on my acoustic guitar. He is very patient and works very well with whatever level you come in as! I came in knowing only one or two chords, and now I know many more and can confidently play some songs! Since I was a crazy busy college student, Chris was also very flexible with when lessons were, which I was very thankful for! I'd highly recommend taking lessons with him!"

"Abraham is one of the best instructors I've ever had. Abraham is patient, willing to listen, and able to breakdown complex concepts into simpler ones to make it easier to understand. Having a good guitar teacher is more than just knowing how to play the guitar well - it's more about being able to understand the students needs and tailoring the lesson in the most efficient way for them - and Abraham does just that. We make the most out of the 45 minutes we have and I always walk away learning a lot each and every lesson. At this rate I am going to learn a lot quicker than I thought and it's all thanks to Abraham! I highly recommend him."
