This week’s Rock Star Teacher of the Week is the talented Andrew H. of Tampa, Florida! A recent graduate of the University of Southern Florida with a degree in Music Composition, Andrew has been a TakeLessons instructor since July 2009 and has 10 continuing students with an average of 30 lessons per student – which just goes to show how much his students enjoy learning from him. Andrew began studying piano at the age of 13, and now enjoys sharing his passion for music with his students. In addition to piano, he also teaches singing, songwriting, music theory, opera, and theatrical Broadway singing.
Andrew’s versatility comes from his background performing and composing many different styles of music, including classical, opera, jazz and pop. During his collegiate studies, Andrew fell in love with teaching music and has led several church youth choirs and other vocal groups, in addition to working with students one-on-one. His lesson plans focus on learning fun repertoire that helps each student develop the techniques needed to become a better all-around musician. Great job, Andrew – we are glad to have you working with us!
