I have completed a Cert 4 in Music Performance at C.I.T. Canberra and am presently studying at a Diploma level and will be studying a Music Degree at University once completed.

Methodology

I try to keep my lesssons reasonably basic until I ascertain my students skill levels. From that point I can then decide how to approach music theory and playing ability. I've always found that being a patient listener is the most important tool in a teacher's toolbox as well as a sharp sense of a students confidence.

Background

Hi, my name is Chris and here is a little about myself.

I have always had a strong passion for music which I have not taken to a practical level until recently. My background is in construction and veterinary nursing and though both were interesting occupations I have always had an unfulfilled desire to teach music.

I have completed a certificate 3 and 4 in music performance and am presently studying at a diploma level with a view to a music degree at university.

I achieved an Ginette Smith award last year for being encouraging towards other students and having a high level of enthusiasm.

I currently teach at two primary schools and have my own private students and cater from beginner to intermediate skill levels.

I do believe I have found my niche in life and love seeing the joy in my students after they have learned something new.

It would be my great pleasure to recommend Chris as a guitar teacher! I know without a doubt that he would be sincerely supportive, encouraging and skilled in his capacity to help and instruct.

I've had the pleasure to call Chris a good friend since around 2009, having shared a mutual interest in music and Guitar. While we've jammed a number of times together, Chris's passion for learning his instrument and developing his technique goes far beyond mine and I knew early on that he wanted to make it a major part of his life.

Chris is a very easy going and understanding person and has a genuine interest in helping others. He also has a giant fondness and dedication to animals which also shows the type of character he has.

As a teacher, I know Chris would be extremely patient and caring, supportive and enthusiastic for his student's progress and I couldn't recommend him highly enough.
He has a genuine love for music and the Guitar but also a very kind and giving nature.

I’ve known Chris since we were in primary school, and after all these years I am grateful to still call him a friend.
Chris has always been passionate about music and the guitar, and about inspiring that passion in others. He gave me my first AC/DC record on my fourteenth birthday, which I still have and which opened up a whole new musical world for me at that time.
I got to jam with Chris a while back, he is a great guitar player and a natural teacher, intuitively knowing when to push and when to encourage with praise. I would recommend him to anyone!
