Teaching since:
September 2010

Hi, there! My name is Chris - I've been teaching private lessons since 2010 and have loved helping my students learn drums, percussion, and anything musical. I went to Johns Hopkins/Peabody Institute and earned a Masters in Music in 2016. I have years of professional experience, and currently play professionally in chamber groups in Brussels, BE.

I can teach any level, any style, and I can craft lessons suited to your personal goals. I'm addicted to learning, and hope I can pass on this excitement about music making- I remember learning drums and percussion for the first time and it changed my life, I only hope it might do the same for you- looking forward to meeting and being in touch!

It has been my first experience with accordion lessons and online teaching but Chris has been fantastic. Very patient and methodical. The learning curve will be steep but after 2 lessons I feel like I am already off to a better start than when I was trying to learn on my own for months.

Had my first lesson and love it. Christopher is focused to get my foundations right though I have very brief drums lessons before. Good use of first hour :)

I am really thrilled to be back to learning to play accordion and this is thanks to Christopher.
Christopher is a great teacher.
He has a broad understanding of music yet he is able to explain things simply.
He is attentive to my needs and where i am at and he's able to adapt his teaching to best help me grow. I highly recommend Christopher for accordion lessons.

My name is Elliott, my father owns this account so that's why it shows as Dave H.
I just recently had my first lesson with Chris and he was an excellent teacher! He was patient, cooperative, and made me want to learn more. I'm excited to see what's next!

Chris did a great job teaching me drums from scratch for the last 2 years. We have gone from very basic skills to advanced rhythm exercises and it's been a lot of fun. Would definitely recommend him as a tutor that is punctual, professional and attentive!
