TEACHING STYLE

Chris Hazewski is a fun and adaptive music teacher and instructor. He firmly believes that everybody innately possesses musical capabilities. “We are all able to sing and play and I’m here to help our students realize that they have a unique voice. It is sometimes more apparent to some, while others’ talents may need a little more coaxing” he acknowledges wholeheartedly.
