About this pro

My education process is flexible. Drawing on an incredibly varied experience from studio recordings to touring on a variety of instruments, the work we engage in can be tailored to the student's needs and informed by real-world experience.

I love providing the support necessary to empower students to achieve versions of themselves they did not know existed, through our musical and/or artistic pursuits.

  • Sean Schueler

    Andres creates a learning atmosphere that is both meticulous and amusing; when I was being taught by him, he gave me the tools I needed to treat music with a sense of discipline, but engage the writing process with a sort of unbridled creative energy. Andres does a wonderful job at making the learning process for music fun; one can feel his passion for it to be contagious. He also makes the space feel more collaborative, engaging the students in activities together if possible, eliminating the rigid structures of 'teacher to student' and making it feel more as 'peer-to-peer' studying. Overall, Andres is a passionate and thoughtful teacher who offers a welcoming space to learn about music!

    Andres takes the time to understand student goals, and has a long-term approach. He's organized, clear, and genuinely cares for his students as people, not just what they bring to lessons. Andres invests generously in the individuals he works with, and the fruits of that investment are evident in the growth of his students. I highly recommend working with this thoughtful, kind, and creative teacher.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I approach every student as the unique individual they are. It is important to me to first understand the student's goals and motivations, then tailor our meetings to best support their goals.


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

I have received University training in music performance, music theory, arranging, and composition, as well as a degree in Audio Production. I have had countless mentors on every instrument I specialize in, as well as the process of recording and producing music and audio.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I charge a flat rate of $30/half hour and $50/hour lessons.


How did you get started teaching?

My favorite thing about music and art is the sense of community, and the fact that everyone travels their own journey to attaining their knowledge and expertise. Because of this, we are all each others' teachers and I have been receiving mentorship and educating others for the entirety of my musical career.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with all ranges of students in a variety of settings, from pure beginner to advanced elderly students, in individual lessons, group classes, and band coaching.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I had the opportunity to rehearse and perform a set of my original music not long after receiving my COVID vaccine, and to gather with so many loved ones after such a long period of time without it, in celebration of music and art, was deeply rewarding.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Think first about your goals and what you hope to achieve from the lessons. The best teachers are deep wells of knowledge, but the process is ultimately guided by your own motivation and curiousity.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What are my goals? Without judging or speaking negatively, what are the aspects I am most seeking to improve?
