Chris is hands down the best guitar teacher I have ever had (I have had six guitar teachers since I started playing 30 years ago). He has taken me further in two months than other instructors did in two years. In every lesson, Chris is constantly assessing where I am in my guitar journey, and plotting a course to get me to the next level. He listens to my every questions and gives succinct answers. His lessons leave me feeling inspired to practice and to just enjoy playing again. For anyone stuck in a pentatonic rut, or just needing inspiration, run, don't walk, to get a few lessons with Chris!Apr 24, 2013Verified
Great first guitar lesson!Jul 15, 2019Verified
I gave up on guitar when I was younger, and I’ve wanted to get back into playing. I am beyond thankful I was able to find Chris. I’ve been with him now going on two months.The guy can flat out jam! What makes it even cooler is his ability to teach. He’s genuine and he cares. His passion from our initial phone call was what stood out. He is patient and encouraging, but also challenges you when he sees the opportunity. I would give 6 stars if that was an option!Apr 4, 2019Verified
Chris is a real professional! I stepped out on a limb to take lessons and was looking for a new hobby. He broke things down in an easy to understand way. I'm looking forward to my next lesson with Chris.Sep 2, 2018Verified
Chris is an incredibly knowledgeable and patient instructor. He has a way of distilling his many years of experience into a digestible format for a beginner like me. Would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to learn guitar.Oct 23, 2018Verified
