Chris Wenger received his MA in guitar performance from CSU, Chico in 2004.  Since then he has performed classical, jazz, rock, pop, and bluegrass guitar with a variety of ensembles in Chico and Sacramento.  He is also a singer, and studied a variety of vocal styles, including opera, musical theater, jazz and pop at Chico State.  He enjoys merging these two passions, and teaching both of these skills to his students.  The guitar is a perfect accompaniment instrument for singing, and doing both can make the student a better musician.  But don't worry:  if you're terrified of singing, we'll just teach you how to play blistering lead guitar riffs...save the vocals for the prima donnas!
He has been teaching for 10 years, at Butte College, Simpson College, and private lessons at the Music Connection, as well as a rock and roll summer camp.  He is finishing up his Multi-Subject teaching credential, and works well with students of all ages.
