« 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 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.

Matthew

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!

Angela

He has always had a love of music and will play guitar when ever he has then chance. He has a passion for music its not just a job or way to make money
