Christian's musical journey began when his mother signed him up for piano lessons in the third grade. While in the fourth grade he expanded his studies with the violin through the Orange County public school system, and a year later added the cello to his musical repertoire as well. In middle and high school he attended the Osceola County School for the Arts in Kissimmee, Florida. There Christian grew and expanded his studies in technique and performance for cello, violin, and piano, and even added the viola and double bass to his list of instruments! Each year he participated in many orchestral performances and events such as All-County and All-State. During his freshman year of high school he was given the opportunity to begin teaching and mentoring a few piano students from his first piano instructor, whom had taught him classical piano and music theory from a young age, thus beginning his educating career.

Christian has also spent the last 3 years playing all across Central Florida doing a variety of events and shows; from playing in pit orchestras to jazz bands to small combos and wedding ensembles, playing all sorts of styles and genres of music.
