I have been teaching guitar full time from very young age its been about 12 years. and I have been helping many individuals to achieve their musical goals. I would encourage my students to learn essential elements of music properly and build the proper foundation from the start. building the good foundation doesn't mean to be boring it can be really fun at the same time. when you understand and be able to see the use of it in the process.

I've been a guitarist my whole life, and I've been a teacher the past 10 years. I have a passion for helping students like you learn what YOU want to learn, and creating a clear path to your goals. I have a Bachelors in music from Columbia College Chicago, a thriving arts school in the heart of downtown Chicago. I've toured extensively as a songwriter, and written and recorded dozens of albums with the Chicago band Minor Characters. I now live in Los Angeles. I've helped beginner and intermediate students along into forming their own bands, play open mics, recitals, or just for themselves. Let's talk about what you want to do and if this is a good fit!

Andrew is THE BEST! He connects super well with our 8 year old son and is a GREAT teacher. My son enjoys his lessons, is making lots of progress, and even wrote his first song! I highly recommend Andrew if you're looking for a music teacher!!!!
Kate
Andrew's been working with my 13yo online for the past few months teaching guitar online. Andrew is fantastic. When we had a scheduling conflict, he went out of his way to work with us to not miss a week. He is very easy to talk with, ask questions, and motivates my son every lesson. He is clearly passionate about guitar and is a natural teacher. Strongly recommend him for both kids and adults.
Mark
As a music producer, I've always wanted to learn the guitar, my favourite instrument. I wanted to add guitar playing to my music making arsenal.
I started taking guitar lessons online with Andrew 6 months ago as a complete beginner. I was skeptical at first of how much I would learn online and if it would be worth it. However, I can honestly say Andrew is an excellent teacher who I not only recommend for his outstanding musical knowledge and talent, but also his great teaching skills that allow him to adapt to any of his student's special requests for a class.
Anyone motivated who is willing to put in the work into practicing will love the process of learning with Andrew.

I must say that I am please with Jamie's technique and patience with me. Jamie is very knowledgable and shares some of his secrets (not shortcuts mind you) that help in learning to master the acoustic guitar. He leaves you with valuable lessons and exercises that can do nothing but improve on how you play the guitar. I'm looking forward to continuing my lessons with Jamie.

Do you want to learn how to play your favorite songs? How about write your own songs? How about learn to be a member of a band that can write, perform and record quality tunes? If so, I'm your man.
I've been playing the guitar for 18 years, and also play bass guitar, double bass, and mandocello. As such I have a solid foundation of theory, technique and ability that I can transfer to you, from which you can take off.
I look forward to working with you!

My daughter has recently completed her third lesson with Lisa online. My daughter said this about Lisa, “she is very chill and relaxed. She asks me what I want to learn. Mrs. Lisa asks me questions and doesn’t control the entire lesson with her own objectives. She is kind, funny and easy to get along with. She deserves a raise!” 😂😊 as a parent I am very please, happy and exited to find such a multi talented and skilled teacher for my daughter!!

Vinny has given lessons to my son for 3 years in the Chicagoland area. He started in 7th grade. My son made the highest level of Wind Ensemble when entering high school as a freshman. I highly recommend Vinny. Vinny works on your child's school music and he also gives a lesson that you need to accomplish. Vinny is a likable person, great with kids, he has this "cool" vibe to him that makes you smile and the kids relate to him very well. I suggest you try him out!
