I have played Baroque flute for five years, and I enjoy early music and the learning process with this instrument. Students will be introduced to the fundamentals of Baroque flute playing, performance-practice, and approaches to early music. I am especially interested in teaching modern flute players how to approach and appreciate this instrument!

Provide accurate training, that is fun to help the student sing very well.
I identify vocal options, yet willing to help students with selections they enjoy also.
Provide opportunities for student to sing in the community.
Allow students to learn more about music theory with games about pitches, rhythms, notes on the staff and piano that are engaging and fun. The vocal exercises appear to be crazy fun, that the students love to practice the warm-ups all the time.

We have had a great experience with Andrew teaching our daughter piano. He works great with kids and has a wide range of teachable skills. He organizes fun events for his students that showcase their hard work. I am really pleased with our decision to enroll our daughter in his program, she has a lot of fun and has learned a lot in a short amount of time.

I can't choose a subject because Andrew teaches so many different things in his piano lessons that I would be doing him a disservice if I chose just one.

As a former piano lessons taker myself, I must admit that I had some lofty expectations for my daughter's piano lessons. On the first day of lessons for her, I knew that we were in great hands. Andrew has exceeded my expectations with every turn. And a fun and lighthearted way, and through games, activities, and fingers on the piano , Andrew helps the young learner learn the most important thing about music: it's fun! Theory is fun, composition is fun, ear training is fun, performance is fun. As a musician myself, I'd almost forgot. Andrew has helped me to remember, and is instilling these values in my daughter.

Thank you Andrew for being so awesome.
