Q&A with Chloe

Which musician would you like to play with?

Stevie Nicks

Which musician has influenced you the most?

Paul McCartney

What can you teach me better on your instrument than any other teacher?

My approach is very practical, and I like to focus on the technical details that will establish good habits for you as a player as you go forward. I am good at making even the most mundane tasks, like practicing exercises to a metronome, feel fun and useful. My demeanor is relaxed yet organized, so I will be able to facilitate quick growth for you while maintaining a positive environment.

How did you learn to play your instrument?

I took guitar and voice lessons for several years as a child and teenager, and went on to study voice at Berklee College of Music. I have continued my guitar education independently as an adult.

What equipment do you play on today?

I play a Seagull acoustic guitar, a vintage Gibson SG electric guitar, and I use Ableton Live to produce music as well.

Which personal trait helped you the most while practicing?

Curiosity, passion for music, and seeing mistakes as a part of the process.

What does your instrument have that others don't?

The human voice is extremely unique to each person, therefore its expressive potential is unlimited and inspiring in a way that no other instrument can posses. The guitar also has a wide variety of expressive potential. The guitar can be used for ballads, pop tunes, rock n roll, the blues, jazz, and everything in between. The options are unlimited when these two instruments are combined!

How do you handle children?

I choose exercises and songs to learn that are challenging enough to be exciting, but at a level where the student can still feel the satisfaction of learning fast. I keep things moving and don't spend too long on one thing at a time in order to keep the student engaged, and I lead with patience and encouragement.

What has been your greatest experience as a musician so far?

My greatest experience as a musician so far has been making my first full length album. I absolutely fell in love with the process of writing, recording, and arranging a record, and I haven't stopped wanting to be in the studio since.

What was the biggest stage you played on?

The biggest stage I've played on is the Berklee Performance Center in Boston, a theater with 1200 seats.

Which record would you take with you to the desert island?

In Rainbows - Radiohead

Besides music, what else is important in your life?

My family is very important to me, including my chosen family of friends and collaborators. In general, it is important to me to live by values that bring positivity into my life and the lives of others. I value honesty, kindness, and support, and I try to bring those values into my daily interactions.
