A Note About Parking For Lessons at my Home Studio:

I live in a small town home complex, and all the interior parking spots are numbered and assigned to residents. Visitors must park on Folkestone Road or Mobile Drive, then walk into the complex. My home is near the northwest corner of the complex, on the west side. Feel free to call when you arrive so I can come meet you!

Voice: I specialize in Bel Canto--helping students to release tension and produce a powerful tone with as little effort as possible. This is an amazing vocal technique which can be adapted to so many styles. I also teach Musical Theater techniques. If you can master the techniques of Bel Canto and Musical Theater, and become fluent in reading music, you can sing anything.

I start the lesson with 10-15 minutes of warmups and vocalises (vocal exercises). Then we'll move into your songs, working to apply the techniques you learn in the warmups to the songs. I'll work with you to help you perfect the pitches and rhythms of your song as a foundation, then add appropriate style and performance elements. My primary role is to guide you in navigating the sounds and sensations you will experience as you sing. I will teach you what to listen for and feel for as you sing, to keep your voice functioning optimally and sounding awesome!

Piano: I teach beginning piano lessons (up through level 2 in most traditional method books). For children, I can teach from the Bastien, Alfred, or Faber series. For absolute beginners, I highly recommend learning with a new curriculum released in 2013 by Hoffman Academy in Bend, Oregon. I teach from this curriculum and I prefer it over any of the other method books mentioned above.

For youth and adults, I usually teach from the Faber series for adults. However, I am also willing to use a student-led approach, where you select a song you want to learn to play and we work on it together for as long as it takes you to play it. (This approach is championed by Scott "The Piano Guy" Houston).

*** Studio Equipment ***
Digital Piano, Music Stand, Mirror, Repertoire Books, Laptop with Internet Access

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring a cd player and a music stand if the student does not have these items.
For piano students, the student must provide a keyboard.
For voice students, it is vastly preferable that the student provide a keyboard, but not necessary. The student must provide a full length mirror.
All students are responsible to purchase the assigned curriculum materials and bring them to each lesson.

Andrew N. Columbus, OH

Subjects Taught

English, Guitar, Language, Music Theory, Piano, Reading, Songwriting

About Me

I got my first guitar for Christmas when I was 11 years old and I never looked back. I've been writing and performing ever since, my passion for music existed even when I wasn't looking for it! I went on to learn other instruments and study jazz in college, all for the hope of spending my life with my one true love.

All that time and energy has amounted to a knowledge I never expected, and my enthusiasm for people and relationships drives me to share it. Music brings joy to each of us in a different way-I use mine to bring out the same in others.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lesson curriculum will vary based upon each student's personal experiences and desires. Whatever you hope to get from music, that is what we are going to pursue!

Subjects Taught

Music Theory, Piano

About Me

Every day I help musicians discover their creativity in private and group lessons. When the teaching day is over, I sneak back into the studio and have a lot of fun improvising on my own on piano, bass, drums, flutes and fiddle. It's such a blast to make your own music.

• Owner of a private piano studio specializing in improvisation
• Author of America’s top-selling, nine-book piano method, "That’s Jazz"

• Writes for Clavier Companion, Downbeat, American Music Teacher among others
• Faculty: Suzuki Music Columbus, Chamber Music Connection, and The Jazz Academy
• Winner of a special citation from the American Prize in Composition for "his unique skill in combining classical techniques with popular idioms."

*** Lesson Details ***
Unlock your creativity at the keyboard!

Whether you're a novice, intermediate hobbyist or classically trained pianist, I can help you play the piano in ways you never dreamed possible.

Get the tools you need to play your favorite tunes:
• Pick out melodies by ear
• Improvise variations
• Add chords and “stock” accompaniment styles

Already an "ear" player? Learn to play fuller sounding arrangements by:
• Interpreting lead sheets and chord charts
• Understanding pop/jazz chord symbols and voicing
• Improvising in jazz, blues and rock styles

Note: My availability as listed here is only general in nature. My actual schedule is far less open and constantly changing due to online lessons, drop-in students seeking master classes and my tour schedule. Just know that your lesson time will have to be worked out with me regardless of the time and date for which you've signed up here.

Prior experience improvising or playing jazz, blues, or popular music is not necessary.
Basic music reading skills are helpful but not required.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My music studio looks like a music store - just loaded with instruments.

*** Specialties ***
Most music teachers either teach reading music or playing by ear (esp. guitar teachers). I teach both because I believe both are essential for playing today's wide variety of musical styles. You can learn to read from lots of teachers but if you want to improvise, I'm your man.
