I've been playing music for most of my life. Music is what I do full time, supporting myself, my wife, and my three children. It would be easiest to explain my musical life with a timeline:
Age 9 - piano, drums
Age 10 - cello
Age 12 - guitar, bass guitar
Age 16 - harmonica, mandolin
Age 17 - upright bass
Age 19 - ukulele
Age 21 - baroque cello
Age 22 - baroque violone
Age 24 - Banjo, Renaissance lute
I studied cello performance at three different schools (USF, BYU-Idaho, and BYU). I then switched majors, and studied commercial music at BYU. There I studied sound recording, songwriting, orchestration, film scoring, and jazz. I also played the upright bass and bass guitar with their top jazz ensemble, Synthesis.
Today, I do a mix of several different things - studio recording, performing (piano, bass and cello), arranging, songwriting, and teaching. I've got experience in all kinds of styles - classical, rock, pop, jazz, Latin, singer-songwriter - and I'd love to pass some knowledge and skills on to you!
I play piano at the airport!
I play cello, bass, and piano professionally. I also write songs, record and mix music, arrange, orchestrate, and teach.
Played piano at one of the best Italian restaurants in Utah.

Chris is awesome! I went to college with him, and I've always been impressed with his work. He is an extremely talented musician. He has highly refined and improvisational, sightreading and technical skills. As a person, he is really easy to get along with. He's very chill and laid back. I would definitely recommend working with him!+ Read More
