Amazing job all around! He used many visuals and examples to help me figure out how to properly use my voice and get it resonating to its fullest potential. Great personality and fantastic teaching skills!

He has done a great job with my daughter, she's always excited to attend lessons and I can't get her to stop singing afterwards! Very pleased with Christopher!
