Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: Drew Wesely is a musician, audio engineer, photographer, and filmmaker. As a producer, photographer, and filmmaker I work with clients to achieve an aesthetic uniquely suited to the needs and intentions of their specific project. I view each project as an artistic partnership and collaboration and highly value open communication throughout the process. Drew Wesely received their Bachelors of Music in Jazz and Improvisational Music from the University of Nevada Reno and their Masters of Music in Contemporary Improvisation from New England Conservatory. They teach guitar, piano, songwriting, production, and composition with an emphasis on intuitive learning, ear training, and music theory. Their background includes jazz, classical, rock, blues, reggae, R&B, hip-hop, electronic music, and improvised music. As an educator they have over 12 years of experience in private studio and has given workshops at the middle school, high school, and college level including work through the Boston Philharmonic, The New School, Arts for Arts, and University of Nevada, Reno. Drew approaches each student as an individual with their own goals, needs, experience level, and learning style to create a specialized curriculum that helps propel the student towards their best self and enjoy the process at the same time. I genuinely love connecting with students through music to help them reach their personal goals. I believe that my approach towards learning music is deeply rewarding, engaging, and aids brain development.

My first session with Drew was great. He carefully considered the many guitar related goals I have and chose a great place for us to start. He also listened intently as I asked questions and determined other areas that we can focus on. He’s not only a strong improviser as a musician, but also as a teacher. His approach to teaching is not a rigid, fixed agenda of lessons, but more of a loose framework that allows us to work on lots of different ideas while still maintaining focus on the core areas I want to work on. I look forward to continuing to work with Drew.

Drew is a great Musician and Piano Player, as well as guitar and who knows what other instruments. He knows his teaching and fits his teaching to the particular student. I have tried several teachers and methods for several years and he is the only one who has been able to understand where I am lacking in my ability on the piano and how to fill my gaps in playing and understanding. I rate him highly on all aspects of teaching Jazz Piano. He is knowledgeable, patient and very pleasant to learn from. I am making great progress as an intermediate student. I am a senior and he is also teaching my 9 yr old grandson jazz, Both of us are thriving on the piano. I rate Drew Wesely very highly for all students of all ages and levels.

Details: 6 - 9 years old • No, the student cannot read music • 0 - 2 yrs of formal training • Jazz • Yes, the student has a keyboard • 45 minutes • My home, venue, etc.
