Chris Arnone has been studying the guitar since he was seven years old, when he began taking lessons at Bethel Music Center. He recently attained his B.A. in Biology and is currently pursuing his B.M. in Jazz Studies from Western Connecticut State University, where he studies under Christopher Morrison. Chris has over ten years of experience gigging, recording, teaching, and writing with bands, orchestras, combos, duos, and, most notably, his band Lavender Social Club. The driving force behind all his musical endeavors is his connection with others; he uses music as a means of understanding and his compassion for those around him inspires his music and performances. Because of this philosophy, he emphasizes creating a compassionate learning environment where each student is treated uniquely to help them grow as individuals.
