"Chris has been teaching my son Gabriel for just over a year. The improvement I’ve seen has been amazing. What’s impressive is how he can get him to grasp quite complex techniques by explaining them in a way an eight year old can understand. I would recommend Chris to anyone!!"
"I can't recommend Chris highly enough. He is a fantastic teacher. He has so much patience and is so encouraging. I have never played an instrument before and picked up my first pair of drums sticks at 52. Thank you Chris I am enjoying every minute of my lessons. "
"Chris is a world class musician and teacher. My 8 year old son has been playing the drums for almost 2 years now and Chris has been his drum instructor from the beginning. Chris has a teacher's heart. Chris is caring and patient. He is also extremely experienced, professional and passionate about what he does. Being young himself, Chris brings a cool and fun approach to lessons. Thanks to Chris, my son has made incredible progress and continues to gain passion and inspiration from him. I highly recommend Chris to drummers of all ages and skill levels."
