Introduction: For Solo Guitar and Piano, refer to videos here and on YouTube. My teaching method is based on 15+ years of experience working with students of all ages and skill levels while performing with various musical groups, studying with renowned elite musicians, and earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Music. With my lessons I offer accompanying videos, PDF's, handouts with useful information such as how to practice effectively, and carefully thought out exercises that incorporate various skills and techniques. Over the years I have honed the ability to cater to individual goals and learning styles from total beginners to advanced players and singer songwriters - always making sure the students needs are being met while offering direction when they need it. My goal is to teach you to learn your favorite music while empowering you to learn songs on your own, jam with other musicians, and write your own songs. This is not so complicated or intimidating as it may seem; I simplify and make things easy according to your skill level so you don’t have to wait 6 months - 1 year before you can start playing your favorite music. I help you get over the fear we fall victim to when we are vulnerable while learning new skills. The goal here is to have fun playing music!

Personally, a lot of concepts in music that i have tried working on not only on my own time, but with other teachers had proved difficult. When i came across Andrew i knew right after our first consultation that i was gonna see results. Within the first few sessions i was able to grasp concepts that i had been struggling with for years. This guy is incredibly legit, an awesome player, and just a down right great teacher. I have and will still recommend him to any player looking to hone their skills.

Andrew is a great teacher! I took banjo lessons with him and even though I am not super musical, he was very patient and encouraging. The lesson time always flew by. He is professional, super knowledgeable, a talented musician and a really nice guy.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    My Grandmother is a composer for the symphony and both of my parents are musical. I had these family influences early in my life that encouraged me to take piano lessons. When I was 12 years old, I picked up my Dad's guitar and started teaching myself to play. I started playing with other musicians, composing, and teaching at the age of 16 and became passionate about music in all aspects. From that time, I knew that I wanted to make music my life's work.
