Kris started as a guitar teacher and ended up a friend. I couldn't have learned guitar from a better person. His enthusiasm, never mind unbelievable talent make guitar learning a joy..

Our kids are hard to please- but the style and attitude of the group is so unique and engaging that our kids ask to go back. It’s a pleasure to watch them enjoy music and have fun with it while they learn. We highly recommend this school.

I have the great fortune of being taught by Kris.. and catapulted me into a whole new level with no limit in sight! I have taken lessons from other teachers there as well and they are all phenomenal.
