I have over 20 years experience with students of all ages! Whether you are 6 or 80 years old I can help you set your goals large or small while making learning your instrument something you will enjoy!
You can read about me and listen to my music by visiting my website
The one thing I enjoy most about being a private instructor is seeing the progress my students make day in and day out! When a student is frustrated I love helping them solve their problems!
Andy is a talented musician who has a passion for both playing and teaching music. He is extremely knowledgeable and patient. He teaches within your abilities and stresses accomplishments, rather than, shortcomings. He doesn't judge or criticize, he coaches and mentors. Most importantly, he makes learning enjoyable and is fun to be with. I've been taking guitar lessons with Andy for over two years. I started at age 70 with no musical background or training. The overall experience continues to be mentally challenging and rewarding.
I like the way Andy breaks the lesson into parts. Accuracy, timing, and then Technique. He gives several examples and has patience to allow me to get the ideas into my playing. I appreciate that. He has strong theory background and performance skills that support his training technique.
I'm learning an instrument I've never played before. I find him to be a great instructor. His instructions are easy to follow. If you have any questions he gives clear answers. I'd recommend Andy to anyone for looking lessons.
He explains musical concepts well and takes the time to answer my questions. He is also very diverse in what instrument he can play. Because of his broad knowledge base he is able to teach the music that I am most interested in
