Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I've been teaching privately since 2012 and have experience teaching all age groups. I received my bachelor's degree in Audio Recording/Engineering with a minor in Jazz Performance and a master's degree in Composition/Arranging. I create detailed lesson plans based on each student's individual needs and create a fun environment for each student to grow as a musician. Included in every lesson is a PDF of everything covered, backing tracks, and video recordings of lesson material. Do you have ideas for songs or music in your head and want to learn how to write these down or finish them? Or would you like to take the music you’re already writing and put it into a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) to create more professional mockups (digitally produced recordings)? Whatever your experience in music, I believe we learn best when we work with the music that speaks most deeply to us. For my students, I like to work from custom arrangements for each that progress in difficulty as you progress in skill.

My first lesson with Chris was great! I've been wanting to learn the guitar for many years now, but have put it off due to other priorities. I was hesitant about learning online, but the experience was wonderful and makes it easy to fit in my schedule. Chris is down-to-earth, yet professional. I learned my first 2 chords during my first lesson and he gives great tips on how to hold the guitar, strum, press on the strings, etc. I am looking forward to my next lesson, and highly recommend him. Thanks, Chris!

Chris was awesome! This was my first ever real guitar lessons and he not only taught me how to get started with my new hobby, but he motivated me to want to pursue it even more. He made it interesting and fun…and kept it at a level I could understand. Bring on lesson #2.

I just had my first lesson with Chris and it was awesome. I live in Idaho he lives in New York, we did a zoom meeting and he was very well prepared with content. Don’t let a little separation stop you from choosing Chris to help you learn how to play!

I never thought I would be able to play any guitar chords until I started taking lessons from Chris. I really like how Chris took his time to see where my skill level was so he could tailor the lessons to improve around it. I would highly recommend signing up with Chris to anyone wanting to learn how to play guitar.

FAQs

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

    $20 for 30mins $35 for 45 mins $50 for 60mins I also offer referral deals that get current students lessons free of charge if the referral stays on as a client.

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

    I always access a new students skill level and musical knowledge to best develop a lesson plan to help achieve their goals as efficiently as possible. Each lesson the student will be given a PDF breaking down everything covered as well as backing tracks, and videos of lesson concepts.

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

    I've taught many students over the past 9 years from all age groups. I've worked with complete beginners, college students, and adults who are coming back to their instrument after a long break. My goal is to help each student grow and feel comfortable on their instrument. I obtained my master’s degree as well in 2018.
