"I found Andy on Thumbtack and am very happy I did. Andy is a very skilled pianist and great match for what I was looking for in a teacher. I played for about 8 years as a kid, and dabbled with piano and other instruments ever since, so have a good ear and sense for music, but my mechanics and theoretical knowledge are sorely lacking. Andy was quick to recognize and understand the kind of instruction that I need and the biggest impact thus far is in teaching me how to practice. He's versatile in his own skills, so is able to focus on my desire to steer towards blues/jazz. My wife was skeptical about finding and hiring a teacher via thumbtack, but now, after seeing my progress in less than a month, she's interested in joining in the fun and having Andy teach her as well. I highly recommend him."
