Chris Roszell is a recent arrival in Denver from North Carolina. He has played bluegrass banjo professionally for over 15 years with many bands including Colorado’s Blue Canyon Boys, Scott Slay and The Rail, and Big Fat Gap. He spends a lot of time thinking about teaching and about music. Since picking up the banjo he has taught a wide variety of students, hoping to instill in them the confidence and ability to play with others and to foster a love for bluegrass music. During that time, he also spent 7 years as a middle school math teacher.

Chris’s students say:

“Chris is a great guy, a fantastic teacher, and an awesome player. The lessons were fun and he was able to easily grasp my skill level and tailor the instruction to me.”
“Chris is a lot of fun and was able to hone right in on my skill level. I feel he is approachable for any skill level. He challenges me to become better but in a friendly way.”
“He is very professional and his enthusiasm is contagious! The progress is amazing: I started as a beginner. Now I can pick along full-speed to loads of bluegrass songs and regularly attend local jam sessions.”
“Chris made learning very easy and fun, he was very reliable and was an amazing teacher.”
