I firmly believe that regardless of the style of the music the student wants to learn, technical development is paramount. A good technique allows the student to learn music at a faster pace and when they see their own progress, it motivates them to practice better than any words that I could say to try and inspire them.
My name is Chris and I am a classically trained pianist and flutist. I graduated from Washington Adventist University. I have been teaching for over 10 years, students ages ranging as young as 5 to adult. I have toured extensively with the New England Symphonic Ensemble, performing all around the world, including dozens of performances with Mid America Productions at Carnegie Hall, New York City.
