“Music brings happiness into my life, and it can for you too. I approach teaching by creating a welcoming atmosphere where students can learn, but also have fun in the process. Whether you are meeting barriers in musical knowledge, technique, or creativity, I am here to help you step by step. Music is endless and has no boundaries. Any genre, any song. Let's explore!”
Chris started his musical journey as a classically trained violinist and pianist at 8 years-old. Eventually, he shifted his focus to violin where he has had over 60 solo performances with a broad variety of repertoire of classical music. All pieces were memorized and performed by heart.
In his teenage years, Chris began to explore other genres of music through a new instrument, the electric guitar. He immediately fell in love with the instrument, and started devouring blues and classic rock material.
Under the direction of Seth, he was introduced to more technical guitar based music. Through these new artists and genres, Chris was able to take advantage of his appreciation for theory and technique.
Chris primarily performs and records metal music during his own time, but all styles are welcome in his lessons.
