Introduction: ===We arelocated in North East Portland. If you are not located in Portland or the surrounding areas, we will have to do remote/online lessons=== Pricing can be found in the FAQ section of my profile. We offer completely personalized and organic music lessons that allow the student to truly grasp the concepts of music at their own rate. There is nothing more important to me than the spread of music. I have been studying and teaching music since I was 9 years old and it has been a life long dream to teach, few things can even come close to my love for teaching music.

After not playing guitar for many years, I wanted to get back into it, but I wanted to learn the guitar the 'right' way this time. I lacked any actual knowledge of guitar fundamentals, so I reached out to Chris, and he was great. He set me up with his partner Ayel to get me started. Ayel has been awesome! Since day one, she has been very welcoming, patient, and encouraging. She meets you where you're at without any pressure. Three lessons in, and I've learned so much already in an enjoyable way.

Great teacher! Chris has helped me improve immensely in the last couple of months. Very honest and patient, he will tailor his approach depending on each student’s learning style. He also helped me buy my first electric guitar and amp. Chris is an extremely approachable guy, easy to talk to, and knows literally everything there is to know about guitar. Highly recommend!

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

    I offer a free first lesson, much like an interview so that I can explain my process in detail, learn your goals and ambitions with music, and help you set benchmarks for yourself. I then personalize a lesson plan for you that shifts with your learning style and speed.

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

    I have an Associates in Arts and Music, and am currently furthering my education towards a bachelor's degree in music composition. That is coupled with over 10 years of musical performance.
