Christopher is a Multi-instrumentalist singer-song writer from the east coast with a passion for performing and teaching music!
Originally a classically trained Violist, in 2008 he changed his focus and picked up the electric guitar. Christopher has been blessed to front his own band, to learn and perform incredible music with some of his best friends, and to live a life that has been full of wonder and new connections and friendships.
After picking up the bass, and subsequently the drum kit and keyboard, Christopher set up his home studio and dove into the world of music engineering and production.
This desire to always learn and expand his knowledge has filled Christopher’s professional career with joy and experiences he cherishes.
Beginning in 2016, with a strong desire to share his passion with other inspired people, Christopher began teaching music to students both one on one, and in band-group settings at Lakehouse Music Studios in Asbury Park, NJ.
His teaching style is fun and patient, and focuses not just on technique and theory, but the innate connection we have with music; why do we feel emotionally touched by certain notes or moments in a song? His goal is to help students of all interests connect their inner passion, their experiences, and their hearts with their instrument to bring the experience of playing music to a whole new level.
He has toured the country and recorded albums playing with some of his favorite independent bands as a drummer, bassist and guitarist, such as progressive metal group Beatrix Potter, indie folk band The Accidental Seabirds, and hard rock group Baron Praxis.
Christopher has been performing in diverse genres, from folk to jazz to rock and metal and even Indian classical music since 2009. He is always looking for something new to learn and to share with his students.
