Introduction: 30 years of experience - Private and Professional Music Studio in Manhattan. You may think it's too hard.... but in fact it's simply about unlocking the music you already feel inside. I'm here to be patient and help! Unlocking the music most people already feel and hear inside of themselves... then being able to see them play with that inspiration on their own.

With CC’s easy, modern, and academic approach, you will learn guitar very quickly before you even realize it yourself. He unlocks the guitar neck knowledge for you and makes playing and learning guitar inspiring for the next lesson. He is a Berklee Alumnus, and you will experience the difference! If CC taught Rocket Science, you’d be an expert in 3 weeks!

Chris is definitely a pro! Lessons are really fun and inspiring! great to learn music in a very vivid way! I've been playing guitar on and off for a few years but it's my first time learning how chords and melody work together and even try to write songs! I am even more passionate about guitar/music than when I started☺️☺️

I'm a beginner and have been taking lessons with Chris for three months. I honestly can't imagine a better guitar teacher. Chris is patient, incredibly supportive, and most importantly, fun. I always leave each lesson on a high; psyched to practice and learn more. Stop looking. You found your guitar teacher.

Chris took me to the next level of playing. You come to Chris to learn music - not just guitar. His approach to focus on harmony and composition gave my improvisations purpose and unlocked me. I highly recommend him as an intermediate guitar player, but probably could have saved years of study and practice if I went to him when I was much younger. If you really want to know what it’s like to study with him, watch a video of him performing live. The face tells it all. He has a passion and joy while playing music that is infectious. He brings that passion and joy to every lesson. If you are in NYC area and can afford the best, jump at the chance to study with him in person. One positive thing about Covid is that he now does online lessons too so living in NYC is optional.

I have been going to Chris for lessons for about about a year and a half now. I was initially nervous starting to play guitar but right off the bat, Chris made me feel comfortable. He is very down to earth, understanding, and very knowledgeable about music theory, playing technique, recording music among other things. Chris is an extremely handy resource for all things music. I have improved a lot in playing since going to him and playing music has become such an enjoyable hobby for me. Chris is always very responsive to questions and can help with so many aspects of the music learning journey. If you are looking to start out playing guitar or even master your skills, I would highly recommend Chris. He is professional and enthusiastic, and will without a doubt help you get to where you want to go.
