I recently had a first lesson with Chris, and was super impressed! He was very well prepared, patient, and had all the right resources to teach guitar online. Looking forward to continuing to work with him!

Chris is a fun instructor and really connecting with me. My lessons fly by and I’m already playing guitar…kind of. Chris is challenging me to learn at a pretty quick pace and does a great job providing feedback and ways to improve my ability to play. If you want a great experience hire Chris.

My son is taking guitar lessons from Chris. We tried some online tutorials but as a new guitar player, that didn’t give him the feedback that he needed. We tried an instructor locally but it wasn’t a good fit. Thankfully, I came across Chris on Thumbtack. He’s very patient, thorough, and positive and it’s been a great experience!

Details: 10 - 13 years old • No formal training • No, cannot read music • Acoustic • Rock • Yes, the student has an instrument • 30 minutes • At the pro’s location • Remotely (phone or internet)

Chris is the BEST! He’s only done a couple of lessons for my 14-year-old son so far (acoustic, beginner, transitioning to electric) but he’s really loving it. My son Traeden loves that Chris is a good teacher but “doesn’t act super strict. He teaches, but he’s also just a cool guy” which is exactly what we were looking for. Plus Chris was able to work with us on catering the lessons to fit our specific needs, which I really appreciate. He’s seriously just awesome. If you’re looking for a guitar teacher, STOP. You’ve found him! 👍 🎸❤️

Details: 14 - 17 years old • No formal training • Yes, can read music staff • Electric • Rock • Yes, the student has an instrument • 60 minutes • Remotely (phone or internet)

Chris has been patient with me. I’m in my 40’s and started guitar about 6 months ago. I kept getting stuck on certain parts of a song I was trying to learn. I tried Chris and he has been beyond helpful and more importantly he has been patient with me!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My prices are negotiable. Ultimately, if you have your own guitar the prices are lower. If you don't and you borrow mine, then the price goes up a little more. Not because I'm greedy but because I have to care for the guitar

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Hopefully I'll have an understanding of where the customer is in their guitar playing. Once I know that I can set up a lesson plan based on their wants.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I've been playing for 30 years. I've been in many bands and have toured the US and Europe. I know how to read guitar tab
