Chris Teesdale- AKA Mr. Hamilton
I am originally from Lexington, KY where I attended Tates Creek High School. I began playing piano in the third grade, and enjoyed singing in my church choirs throughout my youth and childhood. In fifth grade I started playing percussion. I attended the University of Louisville, where I studied percussion & music education. After college I taught percussion at several high school band programs.
I began my career with Willis Music as Assistant Manager of the Lexington location in August 2013. I became the Store Manager in February 2014. After several years as a music educator while also working a few sales jobs along the way, coming to Willis Music to serve the Central Kentucky community has truly been an honor. I look forward to coming to work each day, and I am excited about the future for Willis Music in Lexington and beyond.
When not at work, I’m enjoying every moment with my wife and 4 children. I coach soccer and serve on the board of the Lexington Youth Soccer Association. I volunteer at my childrens’ schools, and serve on the Site Based Council. I am also an elder at Central Christian Church, where I oversee the sound ministry. I also serve on the music ministry staff as the handbell choir director, leader for the children’s choir, and in-house percussionist.
