About Chris Ochoa

Chris Ochoa is an American guitar player, vocalist, composer, producer and recording artist. Chris began playing guitar at age 9 after hearing Slash's "patience" guitar solo. This was the start of his journey as a guitar player. Right after that, he became, as he describes it, a “guitar freak.”

Best known for his unique guitar skills, Chris is also one of the best guitar instructors in the world, keeping his teaching style as one of the most honest and simplified way of not only learning how to play guitar, but also on how to succeed as an artist. As well as songwriting and playing guitar, Chris is dedicated to teaching.
