Chris Argenziano

Certified Private Instructor

My name is Chris Argenziano and I have have been a music lover for as far back as I can remember. I began my musical journey on the trumpet but soon fell in love with the sounds of the guitar. I picked up the guitar at the age of fifteen ( that is quite a while ago now!) and haven't put it down since. My formal music education took place at North Dakota State University where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Music and a Masters of Music in Classical Guitar Performance. I currently work as Professor of Guitar at Valley City State University, teach group guitar classes at NDSU and have been teaching privately since 2008.


My philosophy is that each student has unique needs and interests and I customize lessons to fulfill the needs of the individual. I do make sure that students learn the instrument, not just songs, and will have the tools they need to continue learning on their own long after they finish studying with me.
