Hi! I am a recent graduate of Marywood University where I graduated with a degree in Music Therapy. I am currently an music therapy intern at BOCES and have significant current/past experience with children, adults and elderly who have disabilities.

I started taking snare drum lessons when I was 9 years old. Soon, I was taking drumset lessons and participating in my high school music program. Graduating from the music program at Marywood University gave me significant knowledge in the field of percussion/drum-set. Classically trained, I was taught over the course of four years on Marimba, Timpani, Snare drum and Drumset.

I have also served as a worship leader at Parker Hill Community Church in Scranton, PA where I played drumset to Christian Rock songs. This experience gave me the opportunity to lead and play with a rock band.

My previous experience was mostly with kids/young adults ranging from ages 8-22 but am open to other ages as well! If you are interested in either learning to learn some Rock-and-Roll beats on the drumset or learn how to play Solo Marimba please feel free to contact me!

Chris is a great instructor. Happy he was available to teach in our home. He was very good at working with our 6 year old daughter. Very focused lessons and recognizes when kids need a minute or two to take a break and do some fun things.

Chris is a super amazing instructor. He is knowledgable about the instrument and very personable. He will get to know you and you will have a great time while learning to drum. He will meet you where you are and help you grow in a very personalized way. It is everything you need to be a successful learner and expand your ability on the drums.

Man, I've never felt so inspired to release all of my passion and intensity into the drum. He truly awakened the potential that I didn't even see in myself. Highly recommend him, not only because of his impeccable technique, but his drive to watch his students succeed.

His instructions were easy to understand and he made a huge improvement in my overall drumming ability with sticks. He was very kind and patience is impressive
