About Christopher B.

Hello! My name is Chris B. and I'm excited for the opportunity to work with you! I have extensive teaching and performance experience throughout New England, and I'm excited to use my skills and experience to help you learn and achieve.

I've recently graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Music from Rhode Island College, and am continuing pursuit of a Bachelor of Music in Music Education. I've studied Classical Percussion with Michael DeQuattro at Rhode Island College, as well as drum set with Michael Odabashian, drummer for Zander Bleck and Kicking Harold. I've performed solo and with many groups in New England and abroad, including, but not limited to: the New England Intercollegiate Band, the Rhode Island College Symphony Orchestra, the Rhode Island Wind Ensemble, and American Music Abroad's 2013 Liberty Tour of Europe.
