Laid-back atmosphere, reaching our goals in a fun way. Learning chords, strumming and techniques by learning to play rock songs. Enjoying the process is as important as achieving our goals.

I take time to teach the foundations and to make sure the student becomes strong and confident before moving on. I also know how to break up a lesson so a student doesn't get bored. Fun is so important to keep on playing!

Chris is awesome. So unbelievably talented. He is encouraging and patient and is the perfect teacher for this mom of 2 college boys. Borrowed my youngest son's first acoustic guitar and am slowly learning and loving it. Sore fingertips and all.

Chris was very prompt, polite, and enthusiastic!
Gary G.
Truly alot better than previous instructors trying to rush through time instructing you on sounds then the basic theory of music. Chris made it simple enough, even for a sixty year old adult to understand. Day one of my first class. Thank you.

I specialize in Classical guitar, teaching finger style techiniques in the style of Christopher Parkening. I also teach Folk guitar including reading notes, tabs and chords.

Hey, I'm Bennett, and I have been teaching piano and guitar for nearly 3 years. My goal as a teacher is to make my students succeed in their goals. Everyone responds differently to music lessons, which is why I prepare individualized lessons for each and every student. There is plenty of repertoire to choose from. On top of the guitar, I can also teach music theory. I feel it is important for you as a musician to understand why everything sounds and works the way it does. I have found that understanding this allows you to be a better musician. I look forward to teaching you!

About Bennett

All throughout high school, I taught piano and guitar to mostly elementary-aged kids. I still continue to teach, but it remains mostly though an online setting. I never had a teacher when I was learning guitar, but I wish I had, so I could've avoided time-consuming mistakes that took years to fix.
