Want to start playing more gigs? Looking for a coach who understands what YOU want and what YOUR goals are? Want someone easy to get along with, friendly, and who brings actual results? Then look no further! I am an experienced musician and manager and I specialize in helping you achieve your goals as fast as possible. No matter the style, age, skill level or temperament of the student, I guarantee I can help you grow as a musician and greatly improve your skillset! Send me a message and let's talk about what YOU want from music lessons!

About Christopher H.

Hello! My name is Chris and I am a professional musician and music instructor! I have taught music since 2012 and graduated in 2018 with a Bachelor of Arts in Commercial Music from William Jessup University, where I learned composition, singing, instrumentation, theory, ear training, recording and production and many other skills.

Any student of mine will find that I don't care what "the book" says I should teach my student; I care what my student wants to learn. I will only have you learn a new skill if it is going to further your musical experience and give you the tools to accomplish the goals that you set for yourself. If you wanna learn Mozart, you got it. If you wanna learn ACDC, you got it. If you wanna learn jazz, folk or even rock-a-billy surf polka, then guess what; you got it.

My lessons are fun, relaxed and I will NEVER make you feel bad for a mistake or a missed note. I will help you improve and get better, but not by shouting at you; we will work together to improve your musicianship, and as long as your satisfied with the lessons and the results, then I will be too!

Now, a little bit more about me!

I am the drummer, background vocalist and songwriter for California-based alternative-rock band, With One Voice. I am married to my beautiful wife, Courtney, who also plays and teaches music! I love rock but I have an appreciation for all music, from rap to country to soul to Broadway to classical; I listen to it all! I believe I can make you better at any style of music (and every style of music) so let's talk about how I can help you accomplish your goals, impress your friends, become a rockstar and learn a new, fun, and exciting skill today!

Tonight my granddaughter had her very first lesson with Christopher, and we can truly say, we are not disappointed. He made her feel not only comfortable but confident and me, as her grandmother, heard sounds I have never heard. I believe that her dream to sing and to sing well will be realized with Christopher. Thanks for not only your professionalism but your kindness and passion for the art.

My daughters, 9 and 12, just started piano lessons with Chris. They have had lessons in the past and were so pleased with their new teacher. My 12 year-old is especially shy, and she warmed right up to him. We are really looking forward to Chris coming for weekly lessons.

Chris is my son’s in home piano teacher. My son has special needs but loves music. Chris has been so patient with him keeping him on task in learning as well as enjoying each session with him. He is always looking forward to his lessons each week. Chris is very professional, punctual and communicates with us for any changes in schedule that may come up. We are grateful to have him as my son’s piano teacher!
