Chris Gammon BA (Hons), MMus
Hi! I’m Chris. I live and work in East Northants and currently run a Music Department at a local secondary school. I’m a keen musician who after graduating from Leeds University went on to study for a Masters in Music before training to teach. I have a wide interest in music ranging from early classical (with particular specialism in the Baroque) to modern day popular styles. I’m also a keen instrumentalist who plays Piano, Flute, Ukulele and Mandolin amongst other instruments.
I love to take part in community music making, in the past I have been the musical director of the Stanwick Handbells, currently I am the Assistant Musical Director of Raunds Community Choir and the director of A Different Direction Choir which also meets in Raunds. Ukulele is a real passion. Since teaching myself to play I have taught others as a way to form a group for which he could play in. That group, Raunds Ukulele Orchestra, has now been running for five years and has over 30 people in it, most of whom learnt from scratch (and were taught by me).
Lots of people are still asking for lessons and I have a regular list of clients who I teach from my home in Raunds. I also run regular community sessions where a larger group learn to play together, you can find out about the latest courses on this site, what I offer or get in touch to book your own session.
