Little Chris Music
I teach beginner to intermediate guitar. I can also teach ukulele, bass, banjo and mandolin. I can teach any genre of music and have been teaching for over 4 years. I will teach you, not only know how to play but teach you what you are doing, musically.
If you're a beginner, we can start from the ground up; we'll learn how to hold the guitar, how to tune, and how to strum your first chords. From there, we'll build the lessons around you-what you want to learn and the music you want to play!
Do you love the sound of the guitar? Are you looking for a musical outlet to express yourself and sharpen your mind? Whether it’s around the fire pit, a family reunion or the stage, I will walk you through the skills you need to read tablature and play any song. As an experienced and effective instructor he will have you playing chords your first week and playing basic songs by the second week.
Teaching is my purpose. To be able to teach others things I have learned in music is a blessing. Whether it be theory or chord structure and everything in between.. to get a new student and have them go from "I'm not sure I can do this" to all of the sudden getting it, putting it all together and playing songs with confidence. That is the biggest pay day for me. I love this job.
