Teaches students:
and Ages 5+

Teaching since:
April 2008

Classically trained and always ready to rock, I know how to help you make the music that you want to make. I am well-versed in nearly all popular styles (rock, pop, folk, punk, metal... you name it!) and I have the educational background to open your mind to a whole new world of musical understanding. I am currently active in both the world of Rock/Pop (with a band in the style of Queen and Ben Folds) and the world of Classical music (composing my own music.)

I am a recent graduate of Biola University with a degree in Music Composition.

Though I'm pretty much a "jack of all trades," my specialties in teaching are Music Theory, Guitar, and Piano.

*** Lesson Details ***
In lessons with me you can expect a friendly and focused attitude. Each lesson will focus on technique, understanding the music and the instrument, and then application to awesome music-making--all tailored to help you achieve your learning goals.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Digital Piano

*** Travel Equipment ***
The student should provide his/her own instrument and a notebook.

*** Specialties ***
I am able to play in all varieties of popular music (rock, folk, etc.) and I am also heavily educated in the gamut of "classical"/art music, covering all time periods. I have a special interest in music theory and ear training.

Chris is the best

Christopher is the best teacher a student could ask for. He is always motivating, understanding and professional. Learning a new instrument is always challenging and having an instructor who leaves you feeling motivated after each lesson is priceless.

Great teacher!

Christopher is a great teacher! Both of my children really enjoy learning from him. We have not taken for long and I can already see much progress in their playing. He is very easy going and encouraging. He is also very good at motivating them to improve. Thank you, Christopher!
