A One-Stop-Shop For Fretted Instruments In Brooklyn.
Are you a beginner looking for a private teacher to guide you along the start of your journey as a musician? Would you consider yourself an intermediate player, with the basics under your belt, but lacking a complete view of how music theory works on your instrument? Or are you more of an advanced player, maybe you even have professional experience under your belt, but you seek a new perspective, a new approach or method grounded in the self-discipline of ear training, reading notation, music theory or composition or music production?
Chris Conly has been a professionally musician since the age of 14. A native of coastal Maine, Chris paid his dues playing festivals, weddings, cocktail jazz sets & in musicals theatre pits.
In 2004 he graduated from Boston’s Berkelee College of Music with a B.M. in Education and minor in performance & composition.
He has toured the United States & Europe with numerous independent performers.
Since moving to New York City in 2007, Chris has broadened his musical range by doubling on 5-String Banjo, Tenor Banjo, Ukulele, and Mandolin.
Not long after arriving, he opened his teaching studio to offer dedicated players his skills & resources.

- Share your passion with your audience
