Dr. Christopher Neil Adkins has distinguished himself as one of the most talented young guitarists of his generation. As a performer, Christopher has garnered multiple awards and prizes in both regional and international guitar competitions, including first prizes in the Appalachian GuitarFest Competition at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC, the Music Academy of North Carolina Guitar Competition in Greensboro, NC and the Mississippi Guitar Competition in Jackson, MS. Christopher has performed in concert halls across the United States and Latin America including Legacy Hall at Columbus State University, A. J. Fletcher Recital Hall at East Carolina University, Grusin Hall at The University of Colorado at Boulder and Dohnányi Recital Hall at The Florida State University. In the spring of 2014, Christopher was selected from a group of twelve hundred students to represent The Florida State University College of Music on a tour of Costa Rica.

Christopher holds both his Bachelors and Masters of Music from East Carolina University, where he was a scholarship student of Dr. Eliot Frank. In addition, he was one of two guitar students chosen to participate in the prestigious Artist Diploma program at the Schwob School of Music at Columbus State University, where he was the Graduate Assistant to Dr. Andrew Zohn. Christopher has performed guitar luminaries including: Sergio and Odair Assad, David Russell, Jason Vieaux, Paul Galbraith and Johannes Möller. Currently, Christopher is a Doctoral Candidate at The Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL where he is the Graduate Teaching Assistant to the world-renowned pedagogue Bruce Holzman.

A native of Hillsborough, NC, Christopher began to teach himself to play the guitar left-handed at the age of twelve. After beginning college at East Carolina University, he found himself smitten with the classical guitar only to realize that the instrument is traditionally played right-handed. Showing great perseverance and strength of character, Christopher began the arduous process of learning to play right-handed. Eight years later, Christopher was awarded his first prize in an International Competition as a classical guitarist.
