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!

    We’re very happy with Andrew! My daughter enjoys her lessons with him and is learning at a pace that keeps her improving without being overwhelmed.

  • Maryann Gross

    Andrew is an exceptional instructor. He shares what he has learned in an understandable manner. I highly recommend him as a guitar teacher.

  • John volanski

    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.
