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!

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!

Chris has great knowledge and musical intuition. He is very in tune to older styles as well as new age melodies and music. He is versed in various instruments and has an ear to help teach and produce phenomenal results.
