    About Kristopher Harris

    Kristopher Harris is a dedicated and passionate individual,

    especially when it comes to music. His philosophy in teaching

    involves guiding the student to find their own passion and help

    them to lie down the basic foundations of violin or viola playing.

    He will help to adjust the students' posture, in order to prevent

    injuries involved with playing an instrument, as well as make it

    that much more easy, comfortable, and fun! Kris will also give

    some assignments and will talk with the students about

    important concepts in the music they are learning. Kris is

    currently studying at the Lamont School of Music as a student of

    Basil Vendryes, the principal violist of the Colorado Symphony

    Orchestra. Kris returned from four months of studying in Milan

    under Mauro Righini of the Torino Conservatory of Music at the

    end of December 2013. Kris also spent his summer of 2014

    north of Rome in Viterbo participating in an opera festival.

    Kris started learning the violin at the age of five and began

    learning the viola at the age of ten. He was a member of the

    Colorado Youth Symphony Orchestra for eight years before he

    began attending the Lamont School of Music. Kris has been a

    substitute for the Helena Symphony Orchestra, Lakewood

    Symphony Orchestra, as well as the Aurora Symphony Orchestra.

    Kris' greatest passion within music is definitely in small ensemble

    playing. He has placed in the Lamont Chamber Competition 2

    years in a row and has extensive experience playing in many

    quartets and other small ensembles. After gaining so much

    knowledge and wisdom from his many years of studying music,

    Kris is excited to share what he has learned!
