Bio: Chris Tompkins is a 17-year-old guitarist currently attending Bishop Guertin High School. Chris picked up his first guitar at the young age of two and immediately showed a passion for his gift. Chris started private lessons at the age of nine. Chris attended The Real School of Music in Burlington, Massachusetts from 2010-2013 and has advanced to privately studying music theory. His hope is to attend Berkley School of Music in Boston, Massachusetts after graduation. Chris is a very versatile player and teaches a wide variety of guitar styles, as well as music theory.

Description: A group of up to three students per lesson. Each student will be learning the basic fundamentals of acoustic and/or electric guitar. As they progress, the level of difficulty will progress to meet the needs of each individual student.
For the first lesson, you’ll want to bring two things. First is your guitar, it can be acoustic or electric. If it’s electric you won’t need to bring in an amp or cord. Second, you will need a spiral notebook, just a regular one that you would use in school.
One note, if you are planning on buying a guitar for a child, 11 or younger, I would recommend a three quarter size or even half size guitar, acoustic or electric. It will be a lot more manageable for smaller kids.
