As a solo artist or event pianist, my passion is always for connecting with the people in the room with warmth and sensitivity. I enjoy playing "background music", as it allows me to support the interactions taking place in the room and facilitate a welcoming environment. 

As a teacher, I care deeply about connecting students with the power of music in a way that fits their interests and values. I have 20 years of experience teaching (and learning from) students of all ages and backgrounds. 

"Kris is an outstanding instructor. I have been playing for just a few months now and I am reading music as well as working on classical pieces. He pays attention to the details and focuses on what it is that YOU want to learn and conquer on as a pianist. He is understanding, patient, and a great artist himself. I would refer him to anyone I know without a question."

"A truly compassionate and versatile instructor. Values the progress of his student. Teaches with a kind and humble approach that anyone can relate to. I highly recommend."
