Christopher is patient, good listener, and enthusiastic, all the important element of a good teacher.
He was very patient with me! Thank you!!
Christopher is very knowledgeable and has a great personality which makes learning a lot easier.
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
