My son, Ethan Portwood started out taking guitar lessons from Chris at the age of 15 then switched to taking Bass lessons after about a year. During that time Chris helped him grow into an accomplished musician and singer. Chris also helped not only Ethan but 3 others and before you knew it we had a GREAT band. Sadly though as time went on and they guys grew older the band no longer is together. Chris was and still is there for them for advice if needed. Hopefully after the first of the year we can get a new band together.
Some teachers teach exclusively from a book (usually a boring one, at that) but I also show students how to not just learn music, but create their own. Besides learning a variety of ways music is written, My students become good listeners as well, and can eventually teach themselves. It may put me out of a job, but that's part of the job!
