March 2006

I've been teaching private music lessons for over ten years.

I started playing music at age 9. My first instrument was the piano, then the drums, cello, bass guitar, guitar, upright bass, banjo, ukulele, violin, viola, harmonica, Baroque violone, lute. There might be more in there.

I majored in cello performance in college for 3.5 years, before switching my focus to the bass. I now play both instruments, and the piano, professionally.

In addition, I write songs, record, arrange, and orchestrate music.

Chris was really great. I took several lessons from him. He helped me a lot and had some really good ideas that helped me understand how to play better. He was really understanding as far as my scheduled. Online lessons are difficult, but I live several hours away from the nearest cello teacher, so it was what worked.

Chris has been teaching our son the Bass for about 9 months. Chris has kept a10 year old interested in learning that he willingly practices 2 hours a day. I highly recommend Chris to anyone.
