“I have been getting lessons for about a year now. Couldn't be happier. He is a great teacher, talented musician and fun to be around. He spent a lot of effort finding a specific way to teach me as an individual to maximize my progress and i'm sure that is the same for every student.”
“Chris is a brilliant teacher who makes learning music enjoyable. My 7 year old son has been working with him on the Ukulele for over a year and made incredible progress: he's reading music, gaining an ear for playing, and progressing to play lots of fun tunes. Most importantly, he's having a great time and loves going to see Chris. He recently played a whole set of songs on stage at the Burren in a recital show organized by Chris and we couldn't be more proud and happy of all the progress he's made.”

“My daughter started learning Guitar lesson with Chris at powers music school at age 9. It's been a couple of years now, she enjoys the lessons, and learns very quickly. Chris constantly gives her positive feedback to encourage her.”

“Chris teaches my daughter guitar for the last 2 years and we couldn't be happier. She loves his lessons, has improved profoundly in her guitar playing and became a lot more interested and enthusiastic about practicing as the lessons continue to progress. We like that Chris teaches both the structure and theory of music, as well as note reading, chords, popular songs etc. If my daughter suggests a song she likes and wants to learn it, he incorporates that into the lesson. He is very flexible, easy going, friendly, professional, great guitarist and wonderful teacher! Highly recommended!”

“Chis is a wonderful teacher and my kids adore him! They've been working with him for several years now and they look forward to their weekly lessons more than anything else on their schedules -- they even ask for more frequent and longer lessons! They have made tremendous progress in their time with him, and most importantly Chris has imparted and inspired a love of music and of their instruments (one plays guitar, the other ukulele). Chris is patient, kind and calm and he makes every lesson fun and interesting. We couldn't recommend him higher!”

“I'm a long-time student of his. Great guy, great teacher. Zero pressure. He helps you define your goals, then patiently works with you to get there. He can play or teach anything, kids to adults of literally any age group. I've been playing 50+ years and he's taught me more than I could have imagined.”

“I took guitar lessons from Chris for three years between the ages of 12 to 15. Chris was an incredible guitar teacher and gave me a sturdy foundation for what is now a lifelong hobby. He does a great job of keeping students interested by letting students choose the songs they want to learn, while also keeping a great amount of structure in the lessons to make sure that students learn some fundamental music theory. Excellent teacher, and a great guy!!”

“Chris has been teaching my now teenage boys for over five years and they have learned so much from him. He is very talented and caring, even arranged a performance concert for his students. I have recommended him to several friends, he is a wonderful teacher.”
“I am beginning my third year of guitar study with Chris. Chris is a gifted teacher, a master. He has such in depth knowledge of the instrument, different styles of playing, different types of guitar music, all on a solid foundation of how music functions. He's encouraging, friendly, accommodating and has a good sense of humor. I should add that i am not naturally given to such praise. If you study with him, you'll count yourself lucky. ”
