My name is Chris. I am a professional musician that recently graduated from the College of Staten Island with a Bachelor's degree in English Literature, Writing and Drama. I have been playing music my entire life. I am a multi-instrumentalist, sound engineer and recording producer. I am self employed and currently looking for new students in Staten Island. I am the drummer and vocalist of my band No Standards. We perform 150+ shows a year including weddings, corporate parties, bars, clubs and benefits. I have over 20+ years of experience in music. I sing/scream, play guitar, bass, drums, percussion and kazoo. I also teach group lessons with bands. The group lessons include multi vocal & guitar harmonies, rhythm section training and mentoring. I also tutor English literature, creative writing, poetry, song/lyric writing, drama, voice and improv acting and more. You can say I wear many hats when it comes to areas of study. I have a wealth of knowledge to share with my students.
