Chris teaches beginner-advanced guitar as well as beginner-intermediate bass guitar and mandolin. In May of 2018, Chris earned a BM in Commercial Music from Belmont University. His collegiate study has given him a strong foundation in theory, composition, sight-reading, and more. In addition to his academic background, he has gained practical know-how by forming relationships and working with country bands (Doug McCormick, Branch and Dean), pit orchestras in musicals, and recording artists (Grace Gonzalez, Caleb Long, Jaye Madison) here in town. Chris is passionate about getting students to think for themselves on their instruments so that they can continue to grow every time that they pick up their instrument, leading to a long-lasting relationship with music.
