My teaching approach: When I started taking lessons at the age of 9, my teachers only wanted to teach me songs and music that THEY liked and I almost quit because of it. As a result, I am dedicated to teaching my students the music that THEY love and I use that music to help them understand the fundamentals of music theory and technique. My belief is that music has to be fun as well as educational. I am currently offering online lessons only. You can learn from the comfort of your own home with one-on-one live video lessons!

I originally studied at Berklee College of Music and followed that up with years of making a living playing all styles of music -- with emphasis on jazz, blues, rock and pop. During that time, I taught hundreds of students. Perhaps you're a serious player who seeks a complete mastery of the fingerboard and wants to apply all elements of music theory to become a more proficient soloist.      I've got you covered. And, if jazz isn't your thing, and you have rock or pop tunes you'd love to play, I'll have you playing your favorites. I currently have students of all ages with many different musical tastes. ...

Andrade's Music Lessons

Andrade's Music Lessons

My students have often told me that I helped them understand how to solve the physical problems they have had with playing and also helped understand the music they were playing more deeply. My main goal as a teacher is to give my students fluency both in their instrument and in the musical language (both in basics like scales and chords, and in specific elements of style, like blues rhythm, or South American accent patterns).

I have been playing guitar for almost 11 years now and I definitely feel like it's my turn to pay it forward and teach people who have the same passion as I do. I am continuously trying to learn different techniques so that when the time does come, I will be able to share what I've personally learned with my students. I am extremely patient and am always willing to go the extra mile to make sure that all concepts are fully understood. I also play live shows from time to time so that I can further my stage presence. I have taught several family friends to play guitar and I am definitely ready to further my clientele out to the public. ... View Profile
