  • Hello, my name is Chris Nastri and I am a guitar teacher based in Scottsdale, AZ (Thomas/101). I studied in the ASU Jazz Dept, have a bachelor’s degree in secondary education from ASU, I have 17 years of teaching experience and have been the lead guitarist in the rock band Frequis for over 8 years. I can show you how to play guitar in the style you want and put together a customized lesson plan based on your goals that will keep you interested, excited and challenged. I also enjoy teaching those who think they have absolutely no musical ability! I will take on any student no matter how young or old or rhythmically challenged. All you need is the desire to become a musician.

    I teach many styles: blues, classic rock, modern rock, pop, alternative, heavy metal, punk, jazz, country, jamming, improvisation, composition, songwriting, acoustic, folk, and more. I can customize a method based on your musical goals, whether you want to strum songs around the camp fire, learn to sing and play, write songs, shred, improvise, or learn about scales and theory. I also hold free monthly jam sessions for students to come and perform songs and play guitar in a low pressure, fun environment!

    Please explore this website to find out more or feel free to give me a call, text or email if you would like more info. I typically charge $40 per one hour lesson, offer flexible scheduling 6 days a week and special rates for group lessons. I look forward to hearing from you!
