Rated 5 out of 5 by Elron If you have an opportunity to study with Andrew, take it.
Andrew is an exceptionally gifted teacher. He knows music through and through. He knows guitar forward and back. His command of music theory, the guitar and performance is so complete (so second-nature to him), he can direct his conscious attention entirely to the needs of the student, adapting his teaching methodology accordingly. And he does it with such ease and comity.
Every lesson I attended was relaxed, cordial, fun and packed with tips, expertise & insight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Richard112 Andrew gets you excited about learning guitar
I really wanted to start learning an instrument and Andrew has thus far been an amazing teacher. He's fun to work with and as serious as you need him to be. He is very good at explaining how everything works and how to get things done. His relaxed, hands on teaching style makes the learning fun and progressive. Don't be fooled he is very adept at what he does. He can decipher exactly what notes are playing when he listens to a song. You will learn if you try and even if you cant find the time its still a wonderful experience, I would recommend anyone who wants to learn guitar at their own pace to shoot for this great teacher and cheerful personality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ITookGuitarLessons Andrew is a great teacher.
I was very much a beginner when I started taking lessons with Andrew. He was extremely helpful, and catered the lessons to what I wanted to pursue musically. He always made the lessons fun, challenging, and interesting. I took lessons at his home studio. It was a very comfortable and welcoming environment. The only reason I'm not taking lessons with him anymore is because I'm moving. Overall, he's a great teacher and I would highly recommend him to people of any skill level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DannyLu Great Teacher and inspirational
Andrew is a great teacher. I've been taking guitar lessons for a little over six months with him now and I have learned a lot. I started off only knowing the basic chords, bits and pieces of a few songs, and a little bit of music theory. Now I understand where chords come from (and what they compose of), scales, a couple of songs of my favorite songs, and a lot more music theory. My strumming has improved and my playing has gotten noticeably better.
Teaching style is very organized and structured to build each lesson upon another. It worked out really well for me because I made sure I practiced almost every night in the beginning. You also have your option to learn what you want (for instance if you want to learn a song, few licks, etc.). He will steer you in the right path.
Andrew as a person did not seem judgmental. I was a bit hesitant to play in front of him at first but I've learned to loosen up. He gives create constructive criticism.
I would recommend Andrew for any of my friends who wants to learn how to play guitar. I had a lot of fun and learned a lot. No regrets!

Andrew was the best guitar teacher i knew. I was a student of his for over 2 years. He was always reliable and knew how to make a good time out of it. I will always miss him (:

Rated 5 out of 5 by OldLady Andrew is great
Andrew is a very good teacher. I just started and can get frustrated. I can text him anytime and he always answers. He reassures me that I can do it, and keeps me from giving up on myself. It's amazing that he knows if I'm missing one string, and he really seems to care about my progress.
