In 2008 he received a full academic scholarship from the Steel Town Friends of Mohawk Music. In his 3rd year he won the chance to play his first piano concerto accompanied by a small orchestra.

Chris owes a very special thank you to two very important people in his life. The first is Mrs. Lynda Sharpe who was the music teacher at George Kennedy Public School. She was the first person to guide him towards a lifelong passion for music and teaching. Secondly his parents who since the day Mrs. Sharpe called home and suggested he take private lessons did everything they could do encourage and support him.
