Chris has a passion for instruments from around the world, especially the berimbau, pandeiro, hoop drum, djembe, and congas. He can occasionally be found playing these instruments at dance classes in Madison.

With an extensive background in many styles of playing, Chris teaches drum and percussion lessons to all ages and skill levels from The Madison Music Foundry. 
hris also works as a clinician with percussion ensembles, large and small jazz groups, and bands, as well as a teaching variety of concepts and ideas from his own studies and experiences.
