In addition to his teaching activities, Chris has written, arranged and recorded original music for many projects, including the score for the feature film A Genesis Found, and several music projects including Madrigal, Local Color, Freight Train, Erica Hughes and the Well-Mannered, The Drifter Kings, and his Rockin’ Trio.

About chris W.

Hi there! Thanks for visiting my profile. I've been playing guitar since 1980, and teaching since 1998. After taking piano lessons as a small child, I fell in love with the classical guitar around 11 years old and haven't put it down since. I'm comfortable teaching children and adults of all skill levels. Whether you're looking to take up guitar as a casual hobby or a serious profession, I strive to give you the foundational skills you need to find your voice as a musician. I love all styles from rock to jazz, classical to country, metal to blues. Together we'll work towards achieving your goals while keeping it fun and enjoyable. I look forward to meeting you!
