Chris has been an amazing cello instructor! He does a great job explaining how your body should feel when you're bowing (great for a first time string student) and hand positions. He really helps you integrate cello practice into whatever time you have for it and you can tell he really has a passion for the instrument and knows it well. On top of it all, he's just a really nice, fun person and the lessons fly by!+ Read More
