"My child just started working with Chris, and I find him to be enthusiastic, positive and fun in addition to teaching violin technique in a clear and organized way. He is a professional musician who offers both high quality training and inspiration." - Catherine M.

Nothing is more important than encouraging the next generation of music lovers!  My approach to teaching music is one that not only focuses on the technical skills needed to perform music of all genres but also the discipline, curiosity and creativity that help encourage students to become well-rounded and informed participants in the world of music and beyond. I welcome students of all ages and abilities to join my studio and aim to cater to each student's specific goals. I have been teaching private and group lessons in and around the Bay Area for the past three years and I have also helped facilitate music classes at inner city schools in San Francisco. I also have many years of experience performing outreach concerts in the US and Canada, running workshops introducing students to improvisation and spontaneous composition. 

I teach private and group lessons at both Little Mission Studio in the Mission (http://www.littlemissionstudio.com) and at my home in the Sunset District of San Francisco. I am also available to travel to students' homes in the Bay Area.  

Please contact me with any questions. Looking forward to working with you! 

Chris
