Christian Bender

Christian came to the Rogers Park neighborhood in 2015 to attend Loyola University. Not long after that, he was introduced to Chris Bell and took a part time job with Flatts and Sharpe while finishing his degree. Since then, he has worked on both the management and teaching sides of the business.  In addition to his guitar teaching experience, he also enjoys gigging around the city with his original acts. After a sabbatical leave during the pandemic, Christian now returns as the Program Director.
