About Christopher G.

Hi! My name is Chris and I don't see skill level. The learning process is the same regardless of skill level. I've been teaching music for many years at every level, from scratch beginners to college conservatory professors, to professional touring musicians, and I have learned over these years from my students and teachers, how to teach you more about guitar, and more specifically, music than you can probably imagine. You'll learn how to figure out songs by ear, by yourself, how to write your own music if you want to, and how to arrange and organize it. I will teach you ear training, theory, composition, and arranging, and tools like: chords, scales, arpeggios, progressions, techniques, concepts, and much more, no matter your experience level. I will teach you rhythmic concepts like: how to play in time, how to develop a consistent rhythmic feel in every style and time signature, and how to play stylistically appropriately. You will learn to improvise. Improvisation is the highest level of art. I also specialize in college/conservatory prep. I will get you ready for that audition. You'll walk into the audition knowing that you did everything that you could do. My students have gone to Berklee, Julliard, Yale, New England Conservatory, and many other prestigious institutions locally and abroad. Some of them have received partial, and even full scholarships. I can't guarantee the result, but I can guarantee that you will know exactly what is required of you to achieve the result, and we will design a strategy together that helps you organize your practice and study efficiently. My larger objective as an artist, teacher, and most importantly, as a lifelong student, is to teach you how to teach yourself, and how to practice efficiently. I look forward to working with you!

I have been taking lessons with Chris for 7 years and the knowledge he has given me has proved invaluable in my experience as a musician. I am currently attending Vanderbilt University and majoring in jazz guitar performance. My lessons with Chris prepared me for my audition and have helped me face the tedious workload that all music majors face. The work I have done with Chris helped me develop a jazz vocabulary for improvising, learn a repertoire of jazz standards, and develop a time feel that has helped me when playing everything from jazz to rock to metal. I would recommend Chris's lessons to anyone who would like to learn guitar or improve upon the skills they already have..
