Founder of Everett Music Academy in Calvert County, MD, and now located in Asheville, NC, Chris Everett eats, sleeps and breathes music. Somewhere between transcribing entire iTunes lists of classical music, burning through some of the most difficult practice regimen books in existence, and learning fakebooks of jazz standards in every key, he also gigs and tours professionally and shows up to tons of open mics. Having taught and played full time since age 19, he has honed a tremendous proficiency for teaching all ages, skill levels, and a vast range of styles including: rock, modern rock, classic rock, blues, jazz, bluegrass, fingerstyle, classical, country and many more too numerous to list. Let's not forget his performance track record which includes: playing with The Crawdaddies (a nationally touring Roots Rock band), Gaynell Colburn (drummer for Stevie Wonder), and yes, even Kanye West. With an extremely thorough education including private instruction from celtic fingerstyle award winner Jim Tozier, jazz virtuosos Carl Filipak and Tom Lagana, and Victor Wooten's right hand man, Anthony Wellington, Chris will help you on your road to becoming a fretboard-burning guitar wizard.
