Chris is an excellent guitar teacher & friend. He has been giving lessons to my husband & son for almost 2 years now and we are very satisfied. He is very talented and can play any style of music, is patient, and most of all, encouraging. He really enjoys teaching and watching his students grow. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone who is interested in taking guitar lessons, whether they are a novice or at an advanced level.RUTH - Jersey City, NJ
