Hear What Our Happy Students Have To Say!


“Kris is the best music coach I’ve ever had. And I mean music, not just guitar; and coach, not just teacher.Music has been a part of my life since I started on recorder at age 6. I’m now – ahem – over 50. I’ve had serious lessons on all manner of woodwind instruments, and took a minor in classical music at university. So I’ve had a LOT of instruction.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.”

“Finding a good music teacher can be challenging but there are many out there to choose from – However, finding a teacher and a school that will inspire you and encourage you in every aspect of your musical journey, is a magical discovery. I have been studying guitar with Kris Schulz for the last few years and not only do I leave every lesson with a greater understanding of the instrument, practical theory, musicality and methods, I leave with a greater enthusiasm and love for my own unique journey. Always encouraging, Kris instinctively knows how to support each student with exactly what is needed to further their musicianship and skills, and bring out the best in each of us. Not just a teacher, he is a mentor and a great ally on the path of your personal musical journey.”

“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…
