- Teaching since:
I have been playing guitar for 15 years and have been teaching for eight. I began taking lessons at a young age where I discovered my passion for guitar, song writing and performing; I then followed that passion to Sydney Australia where I studied music (guitar focused) for three years at Hillsong Internatonal Leadership College. While there, I played with various Hillsong teams, including Hillsong Live, Hillsong Youth where I wrote songs and guitar parts and performed with my own bands. I worked for Bethel Church in Richland as music director upon returning from Australia where I lead and coached various musicians as well as writing songs and recording on the side. I have spent the last few years performing and building up leadership skills as well as guitar experience and expertise as a musician and teacher. I have a HUGE passion for helping students discover their strengths as musicians and then developing the skills necessary to pursue them. I provide a fun, challenging and unique learning experience for all sorts of guitar players interested in growing their knowledge and skills.

Colin is an excellent musician and instructor. He has taught my son and has played along side my son on a worship team. Colin is very encouraging and knows how to bring out the best in people. Anyone that has the opportunity to learn from Colin is very fortunate!+ Read More
Colin is a true role model of a dedicated and inspiring musician, with a teaching style that is effectively individualized for his students.
You know your instructor is the real deal when you get good enough for him to ask you play an acoustic show with him. *This was 12 weeks after we started working together.* I highly recommend Colin regardless of what stage you're in. I'm currently working on transitioning from acoustic to electric.+ Read More
Timing has always been an issue for me. Colin and I spent hours strumming to a metronome while he would find the funniest, creative ways to keep me engaged and on tempo.
The most hilarious, genuine, knowledgeable guitarist I have yet to learn from. Not only did he help me get beyond the basics, but he truly cared about my development. He reviewed some of the simple things over and over until I had it down without hesitation. Hands down, one of the best in the field.+ Read More

Colin is an excellent teacher and very patient. I’ve spent years not only working alongside with him but also as a student. I’d highly recommend him!
Colin is such a patient, understanding and awesome guitar teacher! He has lead many young students to become thriving, independent players. He has the ability to work with many different learning styles and cater to the needs of just about anybody. He's also pretty hilarious, which is definitely crucial when picking an teacher :) His many years of learning himself and being a solo musician all make his lessons that much more impressive.+ Read More
He is a very great guy and amazing teacher. I am a better guitar player today because of Colin!
This guy is the real deal. I've learned both acoustic and electric guitar methods from Colin. He is patient and knowledgeable. His background is extensive - he has also helped me incorporate a variety of jazz methods into my repertoire. I was able to move ahead in my playing after just a few lessons. His experience with worship music is super extensive - attending the best of the best Christian Colleges in the world - Hillsong Leadership University. Anyone considering online lessons should definitely have Colin be their teacher.+ Read More

He is also extremely patient. I highly recommend him to anyone who is a beginner, and also anyone who is looking to sharpen their skills. He's the guy that will get you to where you want to be!+ Read More
