I have been teaching, studying, writing, and performing music for over 25 years. I specialize in guitar styles of multiple disciplines, as well as bass, ukulele, and music theory.
I love music! I thoroughly enjoy seeing students succeed and find joy in their playing. I also enjoy that I have been able to make a living with a guitar in my hands and am able to assist others in discovering their passion and achieving their own unique goals.
Christopher’s attentiveness, patience and excitement make lessons that much more fun and rewarding. A mix of traditional lesson plans and fun, interactive jams make you dive into learning music theory fast, similarly to learning a new language by going to the country of origin. Highly recommended!
I studied music theory and classical guitar at Northeastern University. I've also been a performing musician for over 20 years of multiple instruments.
While studying music theory and classical guitar in college, I was referred to a music school and started teaching full time.
Students of all ages and skill levels. Youngest being five and the oldest preferred not to say how old they were... and that's ok! It's never too late to learn!

Be patient. As much as it takes for you to build the rapport and trust with your teacher, your teacher is also learning the most effective way to work with you!
What inspired me to want to play an instrument? What goals do I have with the instrument? What time am I allowing to dedicate myself to learning a new instrument?
