About Me
Christopher is a professional musician & broadcast professional. He has composed themes and soundtracks for many podcasts. In addition to composing music for podcasts, he host and produces 3 of his own. While growing up as a 'punk rock kid' (Fugazi is still his favorite band), Chris now specializes in adapting music from classic video games (Sonic, Mario, Legend Of Zelda, Mega Man, Final Fantasy) to the electric guitar, pairing those arrangements with his signature "Game Boy Of Doom" fuzz guitar tone that makes his guitar sound like an NES plugged into a Marshall Stack. He has been playing guitar and bass for 20 years & has taught lessons for 7 years. When not doing a radio show or podcast, Chris can often be found filling in on lead guitar for bands all over the DFW metroplex. If you're looking to learn the fundamentals of guitar in a theory-driven but practical and fun way, take your lead guitar playing to the next level, or polish your spoken vocal performance, Chris is the perfect instructor for you.

My guitar teaching method focuses heavily on proper mechanics.
