About Chris

"Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate reading your blog posts. They ping into my email box at regular, but not overwhelming, intervals and give me a quickly readable snippet to mull over before my next singing session. They make me think, help me improve and give me a sense of moving forward with my teaching.Thank you so much for writing and sharing your thoughts and ideas." Rachael
