About Chris K.

I have been teaching private music lessons for fifteen years and have eight years of experience teaching instrumental and general music in public schools. I have a Master of Science degree in Music Education and a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Education. I have an Advanced Professional Certificate (APC) for Music Pre K-12 from the Maryland State Department of Education. My education background helps make my music lessons flexible, relevant, and enjoyable, meeting the diverse needs of each individual student. I teach my students both online and in person at my home music studio. I follow appropriately paced, sequential lessons, always having a personalized objective to accomplish each time we meet. I offer a wide range of lessons including: -Guitar, Bass Guitar, Ukulele, Mandolin -Saxophone, Clarinet, Flute, Ocarina -Piano, Music Theory, Ear Training, Composition, Arrangement -Logic Pro Software/GarageBand -Conducting, Audition Prep I like to incorporate opportunities for students to compose their own music during lessons if interested. These opportunities help students apply music theory concepts in a hands on way. I also allow students to select some of their own pieces of music based on their own interests to help learn musical concepts. Having experience teaching in public school, I can assist with additional performance opportunities such as Solo and Ensemble or preparing for auditions. I have helped my students earn placements in honor bands and gain acceptance into college music programs. Please send me a message if you have any questions, and I hope I can help you accomplish your musical goals!
