    I just listed to your composition, “Ensconced in Velvet.” I am afraid I don’t have the language to describe my response to your music. It was so moving, it touch me in such a beautiful way, and as a very new student to classical guitar it makes me long to be able to play as you do. I hope you continue to write and share your music.

    Extraordinary !!

    A little melancholy must inevitably set for us much older folks
    when viewing your performance
    We are not likely to have the time to achieve the level of
    accomplishment that you have already so beautifully
    demonstrated – your talent and hard work aside

    Chris, I enjoyed it the first time I heard it at the SS. I have listened to it a couple of times again and enjoy it even more. Your feelings for the instrument and the music are apparent in your performance. Can’t wait to see what you have for us at the next SS.
