Our Mandate

about us

Our mandate is to promote and share the transformative health and wellness benefits that result from learning the language of music. Our mission is to ensure that everyone receives equal access to experiencing this enriching gift of art regardless of barrier.

We believe that learning to play music is a highly personal experience and shouldn’t feel like repetitive or uninspired work. Therefore, we are committed to teaching each student the music they truly love and are inspired to learn. Passion and purpose are required to fan the flames of long-term musical growth.

We are transparent in our agenda, which is to ensure that each lesson provides tremendous value as well as a joyful and enriching experience. Whether your goals are professional or not, we aim to develop natural and efficient technical habits while adapting to the unique and ever expanding learning styles of each student. We believe in the stress and anxiety reducing benefits of a positively guided musical journey. Our teachers are artists who truly care about your personal goals.

Horizon School of Music is committed to changing the current learning system that has blocked millions from unlocking their musical creativity and fulfillment. We exist to ensure everyone can play.

I am Richard, I work at Electronic Arts. I’ve been taking lessons with Chris Schulz at Horizon School of Music here at Electronic Arts for the last five or six years. I really value the lessons on a weekly basis because they allow me to come down and unwind a little bit unplug from the day-to-day hustle and bustle of work as well as Chris has gone above and beyond in helping me unlock my music writing skills…

Kris is the best music coach I’ve ever had. And I mean music, not just guitar; and coach, not just teacher...

In 10 years, Kris has taken me from “never touched a guitar” to improvising-and-composing, which is not anything I was expecting, at my age. Unlike any of my previous teachers, Kris tailors his lessons to what I want. Continually. So expect discussion. You want to shred? Memorize the entire works of Pink Floyd? Learn the blues? Get into flamenco or Travis picking? Do some recording? Just ask. And best of all, the emphasis is on FUN. Always.

If you are looking for inspiration beyond those YouTube guitar tutorials, look no further. You’ll get out what you put in - the harder you work, the more comes pouring out of this man!

I can say this honestly, Kris is the best teacher that I have ever had; period; in any subject. There is always a goal to achieve and a way to get there. Kris’ musical knowledge is vast, much more than just the guitar and he never stops obtaining more skill and knowledge. The Kris that gave me lessons years ago, is not the same Kris I am getting lessons from now.

No matter what Kris has planned, he is willing to set it all aside when I come in and say, “I’ve been writing this song and I need a little help.” He understands that when inspiration hits, everything else can wait until that new song is done. I have 2 albums out and 1 being worked on now. Kris has touched every song.
