Chris Taylor Music – Surfside Church, the Session of SPC is very excited to announce that Chris Taylor is going to be offering private, paid music lessons starting full time in January!

Chris will be offering paid lessons in voice, guitar, piano, drums, bass, and trombone. If you are interested in taking lessons, or know someone who is, please contact Chris at Chris.firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text 843-467-8910 to talk with him about which instrument or instruments you’d like to learn or even brush up on!
