Christopher Shepherd


Hello there! My name is Chris and I am excited to help you achieve your guitar-playing goals. With nearly 20 years of experience as a guitar student, I am passionate about both learning and sharing my knowledge with others. I truly believe that anyone can achieve their desired skill level with the right mindset and guidance.


My love for the guitar began in 2004, just a few months after my family moved to the Spokane area. I quickly became obsessed with practicing and played almost daily. As I entered my late teens, I started playing in bands around town and even took college-level music classes. Throughout my 20s, I continued to perform and hone my skills, and now I am pursuing a degree in music to one day teach at the collegiate level.


Let's work together to reach your guitar-playing goals and unleash your musical potential!
