About this pro

Online voice, piano, saxophone, and theory lessons from the comfort of your home! I offer affordable lessons in a variety of packages, and every lesson is tailored to fit YOUR learning style and goals.  I combine my performance experience and technical knowledge with my music education background to make sure you can sing or play whatever you want with good technique!  

I always knew I wanted to teach and help people with what they love doing.  I am very fortunate I get to combine that with my other favorite thing, music!  

  I perform professionally in Virginia and DC while teaching Chorus part-time in public school and private lessons for voice, piano, and saxophone.  Every day is exciting!

  I started playing piano at 5, saxophone at 9, and singing at 16.  Every instrument has helped me be better at the others.  In college, I was a music education major and in both the band and chorus, because I couldn't just pick one! After that, I really wanted to learn the science of voice and how to teach, so I got my master's in voice pedagogy.  Since then I've sung in Italy, Michigan, Illinois, New Jersey, and more.  Performing has helped my teaching and teaching my performing.

    I've never had professional vocal training before. I decided to take classes at The Music Loft to improve my vocal ability for singing and work since I'm always training customers. I highly recommend Andrew Goldstein, he is an amazing instructor- I learned so much from him. He finds your strengths but also works on your weaknesses to expand your vocal range. His professionalism and expertise are greatly appreciated. I learned a lot about how my body is an instrument and how to use the tools within to make me a better vocalist. I'm usually sent away on unexpected business trips, and Andrew was always prompt in his responses and flexible with my schedule.

    Andrew is a wonderful and talented instructor, my daughter has been learning piano for 1 year and she simply loves it. He has helped her improve a lot and she looks forward to her classes. You will not regret taking his lessons. ​

  • Client

    Andrew has been my voice teacher for about 2 years now. I've felt comfortable with Andrew since I met him, and our relationship has only grown stronger as I've gotten to know him. Voice lessons with him are very engaging, easy to follow, and fun. I enjoy going to voice lessons with Andrew and having discussions with him about music and learning how to properly sing. I'm currently a student in the process of applying to be a music major, and Andrew has guided me along the way and made the process a lot less nerve-wracking than otherwise. I'd highly recommend Andrew, especially if you're looking to pursue music in the future. ​
