Chris has maintained private studios in Toronto, New York and Memphis since 2007. He is comfortable with students of all ages and levels, starting with beginners, ages 6 and up. At the high school level, his students have successfully competed in West Tennessee Band Association auditions. At the college level, he has been a guest clinician and adjudicator at University of Central Arkansas, University of Memphis and Rhodes College.
Chris' teaching philosophy comes from his own education as both a Montessori student and a Suzuki student. He places the focus on each learner's needs, building a self-directed course of study on fundamental principles: breathing and proper use of air, confident finger technique and comfortable, ergonomic posture.
