My goal as a teacher is to avoid any type of dogmatic "one size fits all" curriculum. I always want to know what music the student enjoys and build my lesson plans based on their tastes. Chords can be physically challenging for beginners so I like to work with single-note melodies early on so that the student isn't quickly discouraged. Learning chords becomes the medium-term goal. As for the long-term, I will then use specific songs as examples for how music theory works in the context of their favorite bands. I am always prepared to adjust my lesson plans based on the students progress and overall comfort zone.

About Chris

My name is Chris B. and I've been playing music for most of my life. The best lesson that I've personally learned is that a musician is never done learning. Once you start believing that you know everything there is to know about your instrument then you've stopped growing musically. Personall

Awesome first lesson for our 14 year old daughter! She’s pumped to continue with Chris, and we’re pleased with the entire process so far.
Ron
I have been taking lessons from Chris for 5 years. He is very open to learn and teach all styles of music. in turn, allowing me learn and play music I though i never would. His guidance in "the technology" of music is also greatly appreciated.
The learning experience with Chris is top notch, never an issue with communication or punctuality.Always able to move around his busy schedule for the "adult" student.
I want to thank Chris for allowing to find my "Soul Mustard" He is the best you can find

I have been a student of Eric's for a little over 2 years. He has taught me so much about music and guitar and is an awesome teacher ! I have learned alot !!
Dennis
after Just strumming around for many years, I finally decided to learn how to play. It’s been a fun journey with Eric and he has me playing things I couldn’t imagine just six months ago. A bit of theory and a lot of repertoire my skills have improved quickly.... one of these days he will convince me to just play and not overthink!

This subject will go over all the basics you need to be proficient in the acoustic guitar world. This is a great introduction to guitar as a whole, but my goal here is also to introduce you to finger style acoustic playing where you can play an entire song without singing a single note!
Topics covered: how to hold the guitar, hand anatomy and how to get the most out of them, chords, strumming, finger picking.
