Christian has been performing, song leading, leading interactive music programs for seniors and those in memory care, using music daily as therapy in 1:1 visits and small groups, and performing and leading worship in churches, for decades. He has performed and provided therapy services to people aged one week old to 108 years. His experience as a music therapist allows him to engage with even large groups in ways many other performers don't. He has a broad repertoire spanning genres and generations, from the turn of the 20th century through the present. As a dynamic performer, he is able to range from upbeat, toe tapping, to very gentle and soothing. Christian can liven any event or calm agitated people to sleep, and everything in between.

Christian has played the guitar since 1984 and took up various ukuleles in 2005. He enjoys playing them all, but finds nothing soothes or spreads joy quite like a ukulele. He also plays some other fretted instruments, Native American flute, and percussion.
