    Chris is a great teacher and a great guy. Have learned a lot over the past few months and plan on staying with Chris for a long time. Check out Chris on you tube - many of my lessons with Chris are posted there.

    Always look forward to seeing him - learning and having fun.

    Highly recommend!!!!!

    Chris is great. We have had one lesson so far and he followed up with me immediately to see my desires for future lessons. He was very attentive and cared about what I wanted to learn and making sure that happens. I would recommended him and look forward to our future lessons.

    Chris taught me how to play Banjo for 6 months. He is really patient and he enjoys what he is doing.

    He is so knowledgeable with the instruments. What I like most about him is that he encourages me, and he makes sure that he is giving the lessons at a correct manner.

    He's learning for instrument is knowledge base also. He can assess you right away, and the lesson is not just for one size fits all. I would surely recommend him. Even if you're a beginner, he will teach you well that it wont' waste both your money and time. It's great Banjo lessons.

    I had on and off lessons with Chris for a year now. As you get older, it's difficult to learn something brand new. I was interested in learning on how to play the Bass.

    When I found Chris's name on the internet, I called him, and I had Bass Guitar lessons with him. He is just a great guy, he made my bass very doable. He made it fun. He incorporated music and the things that you love in the lessons. He is cool; he always checks on the progress of the lessons. He is awesome. Not only he is a great teacher, but he is also an amazing musician. And one great thing about him is that he loves what he teaches and he plays it very well. I will definitely recommend Chris to anyone.

    I'm a beginning player and I've been taking guitar lessons from Chris for 6 months. He is very patient, extremely knowledgeable about guitar technique and music theory, and his teaching style provides good structure but with plenty of room to learn my favorite songs (we are currently working on "Tears in Heaven" by Eric Clapton). Even though I can only practice one or two hours per week I can now read music and play several songs. It's also amazing to see him play - the ease at which he plays complex songs is astonishing and fun to watch. If you are looking for an experienced and knowledgeable guitar teacher then I highly recommend Chris.

Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Obviously knowing what you want to get out of studying the guitar is essential. The next step is to seeking out a teacher who is not only skilled in the area you are looking for (the blues, metal, etc.), but who is also skilled as an educator and a communicator. Experience is a big plus, and so is training.

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. What instruments and styles do you teach?
What is your training and background?
Where are you located?
What are your hours?
What are your rates?

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. I love teaching guitar to a beginner because I get to shape how they approach learning good practice habits. It's not always hard to "teach an old dog new tricks", but it can take time to unlearn certain ways of practicing and learning that can be blocking your progress as a musician.
