Iris Callahan

Guitar (Acoustic), Voice, Ukulele, and Chord Theory Piano

Why Amy hired Iris:

    Iris and Amy met through a mutual friend. 


    “I was trying to find a female guitar teacher to help the many young girls that I was teaching guitar.  At that time, I was overbooked and needed a woman to take my place teaching guitar.  After my interview with Iris and hearing her play,  I knew immediately that  she was a serious player, artist and performer.  I love Iris’s soulful voice, her artistry as a guitar player, and her easy going personality.  Iris is a likeable person and has a way of creating a peaceful learning environment.  Iris has also been trained to teach voice and improvisational piano.  She is a versatile teacher who can help in a multitude of disciplines.  That is a huge asset and I am so glad she joined us at GPA!”
