About Me

I have an associates degree in music and I have been teaching lessons for more than five years now. I also have two years experience as a substitute teacher. As a substitute, I have taught all grades, all subjects, and I have helped out many kinds of students each with their own way of learning.

Besides teaching, I love learning too. Anytime I have a question I immediately start seeking out the answer. Learning never stops!

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons will be very informative. I have a lot of information to get out all the time. Don't be surprised if something I show you blows your mind. I also like to have fun and I'm sure my students do too. There won't be a boring lesson from me.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide my acoustic guitar, picks, and tuner and that's really all they need as well. If they do not have an acoustic guitar, an electric guitar with an amplifier is also fine.

I'll occasionally bring my laptop with me to use some music software to assist in my lessons.

I'll always have pens and paper so I can make notes or diagrams if needed.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in many musical genres including rock, ska, punk, progressive, jazz, folk, and more.

About Me

Music is my life. As cheesy as that phrase goes, for me, it holds true. I'm Andrew. Everything I do and have been doing has been geared towards music. I've been in one working/gigging band or other without break for the past 8 years. I began intensely learning to play guitar at the age of 9 and have not stopped. The second I started learning I knew that that was what I wanted to do. Fast forward to now, and here I am loving every minute of it. I took lessons of my own as a kid, which helped shape me greatly. I then picked up bass at the age of 13.
I've taught personalized lessons for over 4 1/2 years now without a single complaint. At this point in my musical career, the majority of my experience and attitude has come from being "in the field". I've played South By South West, Westheimer Block Party, opened up for bands like the Misfits and Rage Against the Machine, shared the stage with bands like Minus the Bear and Echo and the Bunnymen, and been on tour and lived the whole life more often than not!
YOU can be an active musician. If you have the passion and desire. The first step though, is learning your instrument. Learning an instrument is something that stays with you for the rest of your life. It's an unfaltering companion that can benefit you in so many ways. I like to toss out the strict "teacher/student" regiment and create a laid back, fun, easy going atmosphere. I want to be buds and SHARE music with each other and introduce you into this world that I have grown to love so so much. There is nothing more rewarding. I promise. So let's get started!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am very laid back. Your progress is directly linked to you. I will give it my all to teach you and help you, but if you don't practice or soak it in, that's on you! I hate having a tense, seminar type lesson atmosphere. Lessons with me will be easy going and relaxed. I don't want to have to put on a sweater vest and wag my finger as a I scold you. That's just not me.
However, I DO expect you to get things done. Why waste your time with lessons if you're not going to take them seriously on any level? The curriculum will be totally personalized for YOU. After all, not everybody likes the same music and style. The first lesson or two will be getting a handle on exactly what YOU want to learn and what YOU want out of it. Finding out your favorite bands/artists, guitar players, bass players, etc. There's nothing worse than being taught something you have no desire for, but having it drilled into your head week after week! So whether that be blues, folk, metal, whatever, that's the first step. With that information I'll begin constructing and laying out the rest of your lesson plan.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Although I assume you have an instrument of your own (if not I recommend getting one, it sort of helps), if you're looking to just try things out at first I have more than a few extra that I'd be happy to let you use. My teaching studio doubles as a recording studio as well. This means 2 things: if ever you would like to record some of your music you know where to go! And also, I have the means to record the entire lesson if you'd like. You'll need to supply the blank CD(s) of course. It's not a requirement to record the lesson, just an option! Basically, I have everything you could ever possibly need for music lessons here. So you're set.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Guitars, amps, etc. anything that would be needed I've got!

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers marked as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25 lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.I am versed in blues, rock, metal, folk, hardcore, acoustic-finger-style and various other acoustic styles, and more. Through teaching and experience as a working musician I have mastered most genres and styles. When sitting at home jamming in my free time, I probably most frequently find myself playing acoustic finger-style, blues, folk, or hardcore!

About Me

With over 40 years of professional playing on small and large stages I am able to offer my students a diverse range of educational resources.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am easy going and I want you to feel comfortable and at ease, but we do need to focus & can have fun doing it.
I utilize various methods , which is determined by the students learning style & needs, so this can change as time goes on
(not sticking to one particular publishers materials). I have done (& continue to do) extensive research into materials available for Piano and supplement with my own, to utilize the best out there for "YOU" for the best possible progress. While ensuring an extremely well-rounded musical education, so you can progress at the best possible rate. Since each student's potential is different, each will progress differently. This is also determined by your dedication to daily practice (the more you practice, the quicker you will progress & the more accomplished you will become). This is a 'Team Effort'; I give the guidance & tools, and you practice, utilize & learn these tools, & off we go! The sky is the limit!!! :-D

About Me

My name is Connor and I give Guitar lessons to all ages. My best work is done with beginners for I have a great lesson plan and an inept ability to teach the ways of the guitar. I taught myself guitar at a very young age then dove into musical theory when I became older which has given me a very unique and fast approach at learning the guitar. I consider myself a great listener, and most importantly a great teacher. With all my students we will develop a plan with YOUR real goals on guitar, and work on getting you to playing what YOU want to play. I also teach how to write music, improvise, and play with a band! I can get you ready to rock in roll in just a few months!

*** Lesson Details ***
Typically the first lesson will be to see where you are at in your journey of learning guitar, establishing what you want out of the guitar, and figuring out goals for you to start heading towards. Lessons will include a dive into music theory, Fundamental training of mechanics, work towards playing your favorite song, and Ear training. I will be giving out handouts of information for you to take home and sink you teeth into as well. Of course from there the lesson plan will vary based on your goals and what you wish to achieve.

I have a Mesa Boogie 5 50watt Express head, with a 4x12 Mesa Boogie Slanted Cabinet.

I specialize in teaching people how to become a musician.

I am excellent at creating intermediate guitar players out of beginners in no time. I have a very unique approach to teaching that will get you up to speed very quickly!

About Me

I love to teach. Whether my environment is a class of twenty students, or one on one, if someone is willing to learn, I am willing to teach.
