Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate

I have been composing, performing and teaching for over 20 years. In that time I have learned that each student learns in their own way and as such my lessons are designed for each particular student.
Whether they are young or old my students always get a personalized experience that is both educational and fun.

Teaching since:

*Serving Eastern Queens and Western Nassau County*
My passion for music started when I was 10 years old and began taking lessons at that age and I haven't stopped since.
I have been a professional musician and songwriter for over 20 years and began teaching private students in Eastern Queens and Nassau County in 1996.
I also worked at Catalano Music from 1996-2017 where I gave lessons as well as handled NYSSMA related music and issues and am well experienced in guiding students who participate in NYSSMA to success.
All of my lessons are geared toward the needs and wants of the individual students and many of my students have been with me for years.
I look forward to the opportunity of helping my students achieve their goals and dreams.

Chris is flat out the coolest and best guitar teacher I have. He’s patient and kind and very professional but also fun.
I tried other teachers and yeah they taught me a few chords or a few songs and that’s great but I wanted to actually learn not only how to play but WHAT to play and WHY.
Of course he can teach songs and it’s always fun but his knowledge of theory and scales and all the different variances is what helped take my playing to a whole other level.
