My kids have been coming here for at least a year! My 10 year old plays the Piano and my 8 year old plays the guitar! My kids love him and I think it's worth every penny!!! And I'm pretty picky � I can't wait for my almost 4 year old starts:)

My kids took guitar lessons from Chris and really enjoyed the lessons. He would work with them at their own pace and I appreciated that very much. We also enjoyed his optional praise nights which gives students a chance to practice what they have learned in front of others. Thank you!!!

Our son has been taking drum lessons from Chris since he was 5. By age 10 he was the lead drummer for our church band. Chris has gone above and beyond for our son many times, from setting up a drum kit in our home to challenging him to write music and play pieces he never thought he could play. Chris is a kind, caring instructor that is excellent at helping kids discover and develop their musical talents.
