At the age of 12, Connor started teaching himself guitar. Trying to be diverse in his studies, he had learned repertoire from several different genres including classical, jazz, blues, rock, country, and metal. He started taking lessons at the age of 15 after hitting a “wall” in his practices. That is where he learned different strategies and approaches to practice, as well as how much easier and enjoyable learning an instrument is by having a teacher there to help. The practice strategies that were learned, and which he loves sharing with his students, have helped him not only with learning guitar, but when learning piano as well.
Recently, Connor has graduated from Columbia Basin College with an Associates in Arts and Science, with a specific focus on music theory and piano. He plans on attending University to pursue his doctorates in Music Composition and Theory. With over ten years of experience on guitar and almost five years experience on piano, he would love the opportunity to help you develop your skills and understanding of music.
