Hello! I'm Christy...
I have been playing professionally for over 30 years and I have been an active songwriter since the age of 16. I have appeared on recordings for RCA Records, MCA Records, Warner Brothers Records and a few Indie Labels. I was the guitarist for BRET MICHAELS from 1998-2004 and I have appeared on 5 albums with him including 2 POISON albums. I have also appeared on a solo album by POISON drummer RIKKI ROCKETT. As an experienced studio player, I have worked on various Rock, Country, Funk and R&B projects and have had the pleasure of playing and jamming with some pretty big names.
I have been teaching guitar privately all over Los Angeles, Ventura County and the Antelope Valley since 1990. Many of my students have gone on to careers of their own with such name artists as "THE STROKES" and "AVRIL LAVIGNE" and others have played on large scale tours with "SLASH", "UFO" and "IN THIS MOMENT." I have also taught celebrity students who have appeared in major movies and on TV sitcoms and dramas.
I teach guitar for all ages and I tailor the lessons individually to each student. Whether they are interested in learning theory OR just want to learn songs by their favorite bands. I personally prefer to teach through songs, especially with beginners. I have found through experience that most students will NOT become bored with practicing when THEY pick the songs THEY want to learn. It doesn't matter if you are an absolute beginner or an intermediate player. You will get results and experience fun, enjoyable lessons.
For the older students, I'm well versed in CLASSIC ROCK (The Beatles, Aerosmith, Bad Company, Journey, The Eagles, Boston, Led Zeppelin, Cream.. and the list goes on.)
I am also very experienced in working with children in both individual and in group lessons as well!
Interested in GROUP LESSONS? No Problem!!
PLEASE call me before committing to another teacher so that I may explain my approach and why it works so well. You will not be disappointed.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
