Primeau Guitar Studio is one of the premier guitar lesson studios in Austin, held in high esteem by students of all ages. I strive to create a pleasurable learning experience in a comfortable environment. Whether you’re just picking up the guitar for the first time or you’ve been playing for years, I work with my students to create fun, progressive guitar lessons tailored to their individual learning style.
Unlike a large music, multi-teacher music school, at Primeau Guitar Studio, you’re not just another face in the crowd. I aim to create a personal, friendly relationship with each of my students. You won’t hear other guitarists noodling through the walls or have to deal with a secretary to take care of scheduling. Likewise, I am a full-time professional teacher so I won’t be missing lessons frequently for performances and you’ll never be passed off to another teacher.
My home studio is filled with every book, DVD, audio equipment, effects pedal and learning tool you could ever need to for a great learning experience. Scheduling is simple, flexible and visible online. If you’re feeling interested in learning the guitar, please click on the “Book A Lesson” tab and we can set something up in person. I look forward to working with you!
Check out out my library of gorgeous chord charts!
Check out out my library of gorgeous chord charts! Each chart contains chord diagrams, strum patterns, chord duration and lyrics. I made these charts myself and I think you will find them much easier to read than most chord charts on the internet.
I teach children as young as eight years-old to pick, strum, read music and sing their favorite songs.
I teach children as young as eight years-old to pick, strum, read music and sing their favorite songs. Twice a year I hold recitals so friends and family can see how far they have come. My studio offers a safe, quiet, friendly learning environment for the children and a comfortable waiting area for parents.
Whether you are just starting out or have been playing for decades, I work with adults of all skill levels.
Whether you are just starting out or have been playing for decades, I work with adults of all skill levels. My studio is quiet (no noise from other guitars coming through the walls!), comfortable and properly outfitted with all the resources necessary for learning. Lessons are centered around the student’s goals (no learning scales or reading if you just want to strum tunes), clearly articulated and always a good time!
My 8yr old daughter has been taking guitar from Chris for a year now, and we both couldn’t be happier! Santa brought her a guitar and Chris has taken her from not even knowing how to hold it, to picking and strumming in a year. Her fingers aren’t long enough yet to fret chords, but Chris seems to find ways to expand her knowledge steadily while we wait for her to grow.

The combination of his exceptional skills as a musician and his positive and approachable teaching style is nothing less than the secret sauce that is helping me renew my passion and further my skills as a musician.

Chris is a genuine guy and a genuinely awesome guitar coach. I am a professional musician that wanted to get to performance-level basic guitar as quickly as possible. Within three months of beginning working with Chris, I won The Recording Conservatory of Austin’s Top Singer-Songwriter Contest backed by my own guitar playing.
I’m very glad I am working with him, and I’m looking forward to working with him to further improve my performance abilities in the future.

We’ve really enjoyed Chris teaching our nine-year-old (with a physical handicap) and our 14 year old. He has made it fun and they both look forward to working with him. We appreciate his knowledge and patience (especially with the nine year old)! Thanks Chris!
