Chris Conly – a Maine native, Berklee Grad, and Brooklynite since 2007 – offers a unique, student-focused approach to teaching music. His song-based lessons get beginner students to enjoy playing right away. Intermediate & advanced players are encouraged to transcribe, compose & improvise, to seek out fresh perspectives on songs and concepts they may already be familiar with. Regardless of level, Chris is a patient, enthusiastic & motivating teacher, who makes learning fun rewarding.
