Picture this....you get home after a long day of work or school, you feel a little stressed out by the world, wishing you had more time to get the endless list of things done and more energy to do them.....

Instead of turning on Netflix and zoning out, you pick up your guitar and play your favorite song.

Feels pretty great right?!

Learning to play an instrument is one of life's most rewarding endeavors, that just keeps getting better the longer you pursue it.

With playing an instrument, you will have something you love to do and look forward to doing every single day, enriching your life and those around you.

If you'd like to chat or have any questions just shoot me a message and I'll get back asap :)

Thanks for checking out my profile and I hope to hear from you soon.

I've been described as exceptionally patient and flexible regarding my teaching style. I specialize in teaching with an approach centered around music theory, but I'm happy to focus our lessons around technique, repertoire, theory, composition, or any combination thereof. Included in our lessons will be custom sheet music (standard notation or TAB, printed or .pdf) and recorded demos of any songs or exercises from the lesson.

I teach all styles of music and I have been playing guitar for a little over a decade.I will take a non traditional approach to teach you how to play the guitar. I will start you off with finger exercises because in order to be able to play the guitar your fingers need to be very flexible. Finger exercises will be demonstrated at the beginning of every lesson before we start playing music. I will not only teach you how to play the guitar but I will introduce you to guitarists that really shape today's music. My teaching will be well rounded. Each student learns differently so I will be very attentive to your musical needs. Music is fuel for the soul! I will guide you on your musical journey.

"So I started out with Christian just knowing the basic chords after noodling around for the past few years. I knew I hit a point where I wasn't going to have the freedom to explore until I learned music theory and got the foundations down. I went in wanting to know the basics to be able to go into any genre at some point. Man I was not disappointed. He is supremely patient working with you at whatever level you're at. And you can tell he's truly passionate and cares as a teacher. For example, countless times we go over the 1 hour time window and he never rushes you out. He sticks with you until the lesson feels concluded naturally. Honestly its all you can ever want out of a teacher. Whether learning riffs from a song, or figuring out what key a song is in, or how to apply the scales at every level, he simply has you covered. I am extremely grateful to have been so lucky to have found him. He alone is one of those rare musicians where his ability, technique, and skill in the art form is matched in his ability to teach it."
