About Me

I started my musical education in a children’s choir at age 6.
When I turned 8 years old, I began piano lessons. I started violin
at 9 and trombone at 10. I am now proficient on the guitar, bass, and piano. Having completed my tour of duty in the U.S. Army, I am currently on the Dean’s list as a music/audio production major, and plan to continue my music education until I earn at least a masters in performance and composition. I currently also teach at Milestones in Music.. a local studio. I am a member of the Grammy U Recording Academy, and have had opportunities to work with a lot of different musicians. (The Recording Academy is the organization that created the most prestigious
award in music, the Grammy). I am the band leader at my church Montco Bible Fellowship, and the lead audio tech for and audio/video group.. Sanctuary Sound, and also do consultant work for organizations looking to setup a sound system/studio. I enjoy recording my own music in my home studio, and learning to play new instruments. I hope to pass my love for music to the next generation!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very laid back instructor... as you will find out! I understand that not everyone learns at the same rate; however, I am a perfectionist and don't allow students to advance until they have learned a particular skill. I would rather a student take forever to learn a song, and practice it with good technique, than be able to play it right away with poor form and posture! I reinforce the value of working toward goals and celebrate with students when they reach them. I understand that every student has different interests and reasons for wanting to learn an instrument... I try to focus on the areas that are of interest to the student, because if you are enjoying yourself then you will excel. This does not mean that the subjects and skills that are not of interest will not be taught, because I believe in being a well-rounded musician. I teach both jazz (improvisation/reading chord charts) and classical (written, composed music).

*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio is currently not optimal for teaching... I hope to change this within the year!!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide lesson books and other learning materials... I expect the student to have their own instrument/equipment. Piano students are required to have a piano or a keyboard with weighted keys/hammer-action (preferably 88 keys), a piano bench and a pedal. Guitar/bass students must have an acoustic/electric guitar/bass with a strap or footstool, pick, and cable and amplifier if applicable! Digital audio students must have their own computer, software, digital audio interface, speakers/headphones and midi controller. All students must purchase a full size notebook with lined or staff paper!

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical and jazz piano and guitar, and jazz bass.
I am proficient at most production software including: cubase, reason, fl studio, melodyne, digital performer and protools... and other editing software such as sony sound forge, audacity, etc...

About Me

Learning music, especially at a young age, can have a positive impact in life. From simply playing music in the home to performing music for large audiences, the basic goal is the same: the enjoyment of being a proficient musician. I have written a bit about my experience and how I can use this to help you to become a great musician.
I began studying music when I was 8 years old. My early lessons taught me not only about music but about music teaching. As a result of these experiences, I vowed to teach students music that is meaningful to them.
Moving along, in high school I played in rock bands with my friends. I can never stress how important it is to play with other people. I always encourage my students to form bands, join music groups in school, or just find a friend to jam with. Not only does this raise the level of musicality, it is a great motivational tool.
After high school, I studied music at Colorado State University, where I focused on jazz performance, theory, classical performance, and double bass pedagogy. I earned a bachelor of arts in music from Colorado State University in 2000.
I have been a musician for 16 years. I have played rock, pop, classical, jazz, and electronic music professionally for over 10 years. I have performed in the U.S. and Europe with many talented artists, and I have won various awards in performance and academics.
Although I enjoy a busy professional career in music, I am extremely committed to teaching the young and casual learner as well as career oriented individuals. At this stage in my career, I am enthusiastic towards the education and development of talent.
My home studio is fully equipped with guitars, basses, keyboards, amps, and digital recording equipment. I am highly knowledgeable in audio and midi recording through the use of recording software.
Apart from music, I have been an English teacher for eight years. Currently, I am working towards my Master's degree in music theory and education. I look forward to the prospect of sharing my skills and experience with you or a member of your family.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons usually follow the following steps:
Presentation of material Instruction Practice Performance
In a typical lesson, we first take a look at a piece of music normally through an audio or video recording. After we listen and/or watch, we discuss and examine the music. For example, this could be as simple as saying, What do think about this part? or €œWhy do you like the guitar part?€ It could also be more in depth - What's the time signature? Next, we take a specific part to learn. The student learns by watching demonstrations, making attempts at playing it, and listening to suggestions and instruction. There are many ways to teach just as there are many ways to learn. I try to incorporate as many different methods as possible while being mindful of different learning styles to ensure that the student is successful in mastering a skill. Finally, I save the best for last. When the student has shown sufficient proficiency of a piece of music, it's time to show it off. The student and I play it together as a team. Sometimes, I accompany a vocalist on guitar to get a pop/rock feel. For my guitar or bass students, I trade between lead and accompany roles. I may bring other accompanying instruments to the lesson for a different vibe. The idea is to have fun playing music, and I like to have fun.
People often ask if I am strict or laid back. I say I'm neither. My students and I work hard, but we'€™re so focused and motivated that the time flies by before we even know it.
Lastly, I never ask my students to copy anyone. I encourage my students to be themselves. The music I give them is only a guide or an outline. My goal is to motivate them to play what is in their hearts.

*** Studio Equipment ***
12 x 12 room...equipped with all instruments:
piano---Casio 88 key fully weighted,

*** Travel Equipment ***

About Me

I grew up in Glenside moved to Pittsburgh for school and came back because I love it here...I've been playing for 17 years and have a smorgasbord of influences from Zepplin to the Beatles to Phish to Radiohead to the dirty projectors to Jay Z to Kurt Rosenwinkel & John Scofield. I have been composing and working with original bands for some 11 years and play regularly in the city and up and down the east coast. I have also been teaching for the past 11 years all over the Philadelphia area. i teach from a method I derived myself from years of learning both in and out of school. I think teaching music is both aural as well as visual and encourage students to listen to music a lot. most of all i feel that music is fun and the students should enjoy learning so i incorporate their favorite artists and favorite songs into our studies. for serious students I love theory and love sharing what I've discovered over the years.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm a very laid back guy but I take my playing seriously. music is my life and there's nothing I enjoy sharing and expressing more. I learned to love playing guitar when I was 12 from the coolest guitar teacher ever. he had a vibe that i gravitated toward and encouraged me in just the right ways to get me believing in myself. I try to encourage my students the same way. music should be fun above all and sculpt my lessons to each students individual needs so that they are better equipped to succeed.

Andrew M. Philadelphia, PA

Subjects Taught

Acoustic Guitar, Arrangement and Composition, Audio Engineering, Bass Guitar, Composition, Ear Training, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Songwriting

About Me

Andrew is a Philadelphia area bassist, guitarist, composer, sound designer, audio engineer, and teacher. As a recent graduate of University of the Arts with a MM in jazz studies, Andrew has had many opportunities to study with some of the best musicians that Philadelphia has to offer. Andrew performs in a variety of styles from rock to jazz and R&B. For Andrew, music is the most fun a person can have and this idea is the foundation for his instruction. Andrew aims to inspire his students, in the way that his great teachers have inspired him. He emphasizes improvisation, confidence, versatility, good habits, a strong foundation, and the concept of music as a language.

*** Lesson Details ***
Though I cultivate a laid-back atmosphere, I take music and teaching very seriously. I expect beginners to put in an honest effort, and expect more advanced players to be enthusiastic about the material I give them, and to give it the time and attention it deserves. Ultimately, a student will only get out what he or she puts in. It can and should be fun, (and if It isn't, I'll figure out a way to make it fun.) Students will learn to be creative every time they play. They will learn to interact with others (musically) and to rely on their ears and intuition. I try to focus on producing a well-rounded student who can play with emotion and spontaneity, yet has knowledge of music theory, history, convention, and other essentials of a more academic nature. I cater to the student's interests and tailor my lessons to the student's specific needs.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Home: studio with music stands, guitar/bass amps, music library and materials, keyboard, recording mixer, guitars (acoustic & electric), electric bass, fretless bass, upright bass, and computer with various music software, and a wipe off board.

About Me

Born in raised on the south side of Chicago Illinois, I grew up listening to A LOT of great Chicago blues guitarists. After receiving my first acoustic guitar I quickly gravitated towards learning to play blues and blues rock guitar at the age of 13. As my hunger for knowledge grew, I began learning and studying other genres of music through private lessons and lesson videos in the styles of Progressive Rock, Shred, Funk, Fusion and Jazz. Music was a way for me to find structure, discipline, self worth and personal expression outside of the typical confines life provides. Through that I grew as a person and a musician. My sole reason for teaching is to help others find that passion and those qualities within themselves to live a beautiful and fulfilling life through his/her instrument.
