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.

I had a great experience working with Drew! He was incredibly responsive and was able to free up some time to do a photo shoot on really short notice. Furthermore, he took his time and ensured that I was satisfied with the results. I highly recommend booking Drew for high-quality photo shoots at an affordable rate!

Drew is a wonderful teacher. He is always on time and he is teaching me how to learn the instrument again. He is open to helping with my fingering issues and teaching me practical ways to practice. He know all types of music and can go with the flow which works really well with someone like me who has not played in years. I highly recommend Drew for any level of guitar or any style!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing is based on extensive professional experience as a performer and educator as well as my qualifications: Masters of Music from New England Conservatory.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    When meeting a new student I like to get to know them personally and establish goals early on. As we work together, I guide each student towards the best version of themselves with repertoire, ear training, music theory, technique, and composition assignments appropriate for their age, ability level, and stylistic preferences. I recommend 45min weekly lessons for beginners and 60min lessons for intermediate or advanced students as well as 20min/60min daily practice respectively. Lessons are laid back and focused on developing muscle memory and musical intuition through lots of playing.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Masters of Music - Contemporary Improvisation - New England Conservatory Bachelors of Music - Jazz and Improvisational music - University of Nevada, Reno
