My name is Chris. I have been playing music my entire life. I have over 25 years of musical experience. I work as a Teacher's Assistant during the day. I'm currently looking for new students in Staten Island. I am the drummer and vocalist for my band No Standards. We perform 150+ shows a year including weddings, corporate parties, bars, clubs and benefits.
I teach vocals (clean and screaming), drums, guitar, bass and kazoo. I also teach group lessons with bands. My lessons include harmonies, rhythm 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.
