Chris Conly’s my name, & guitar playin’ is my game. I’ve been at it professionally since I was 12. I’m a musician performing here in New York City, and around the globe. I grew up in coastal Maine and cut my teeth as a young guitarist playing festivals, weddings, cocktail jazz sets, and high school musicals. Since then I’ve also picked up the the 5-String Banjo, Ukulele, and the little tiny Tenor Banjo. I’m a Berklee graduate with a major in Education, and minors in performance & composition. Since moving to New York City in 2007, I’ve opened the doors to my teaching studio to players of a wide variety of styles, levels & ages.

What Can I Offer You?

As a private teacher, I offer fun & illuminating private lessons for guitar, banjo & ukulele at my Studio, located just a few blocks from the F, G & R trains on the MTA Subway.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with 500+ private students for the past 20+ years. I know being a great musician doesn’t always mean being a great teacher, so I work to get you playing, having fun, and improving your musicianship right away.
