I have been taking lessons with Chip for over a year now. He is a very patient and helpful teacher. He will go over things until you understand, and can pretty much teach you any song you'd like to learn. Definitely a great guitar teacher.

I have been taking lessons with Chip for over 8 years. I look forward to my lessons with Chip because he is knowledgeable in all the techniques on the guitar. He is patient and thorough. I have gone from playing Folk to Rhythm and Blues. He makes it fun and adds some history about the artists as well!

I have been taking my seven year old son Oliver to Chip for ukulele and guitar lessons for a little over a year now. Chip truly loves music…his enthusiasm and his knowledge along with his years of experience make him a fantastic teacher and mentor. He is also one of the best musicians I know.  As a teacher, Chip takes the time and makes sure his students understand what they are learning and that they progress each lesson…He has a lot of patience and is great with Oliver. We look forward to seeing Chip every week for Oliver’s lesson!

I had the pleasure of learning guitar from Chip during my whole high school career.  The knowledge I gained from him is still utilized to this very day.  He taught me how a simple blue scale could be used in such an intricate and versatile way, and much more.  He was easy to work with and was open to new ideas.  I started out not knowing anything about the guitar to creating my own songs.  This was amazing to me.  Who would have thought that one lesson a week could lead to such progress.  He truly made me appreciate music.  I would recommend Chip to any guitarist, whether beginner or experienced.

When I started with Chip I barely knew how to tune the guitar.  His patience and ability turned me into the player I am today.  I was hesitant to take lessons; I'd tried other teachers who seemed to not understand the way I learned.  Chip instinctively knew how to motivate me and before too long the mystery of the fret board had been solved.  Most importantly, I can never thank him enough for the invaluable live performance experiences he gave me.  The constant jam sessions we had gave me the confidence to get on stage with him and play in front of a live audience.  No other teacher would have gone the extra mile like Chip has and I would recommend him to anyone serious about learning the guitar.
