Andrew C.

Lumberton, NJ

About Andrew

Music has been a lifelong pursuit for me. I have played many instruments over the years while performing with various groups in and out of school. Eventually I decided that music was how I wanted to make my living. Since earning my degree in Instrumental Performance/Jazz Studies from University of the Arts in Philadelphia, I have been performing and teaching professionally. I have had the pleasure of studying and working with some of the finest musicians. Each day brings new and exciting challenges to be met. I have really enjoyed the journey to this point and am looking forward to more g
reat things in the future.

My lessons are available to anyone who wants to grow musically. They can be as simple or as challenging as you like. I move at your pace and strive for every lesson to be a fun and rewarding learning experience. Whether you want to learn how to play your favorite songs or write a masterpiece of your own, I will help give you the tools to make your musical dreams come true.

Andrew is a great teacher! He is really patient and easy going. He makes my daughter feel really comfortable during the lessons which I think is very important for a beginner. I would definitely recommend Andrew to everyone!

Andrew naturally has an ear and talent for music, always has. His passion for music started self taught and advanced throughout his professional career. His music range is wide spread stylistically, thus as a teacher he can focus on many different areas with each of his students. His improvisation skills are effortless both on stage and in our jam sessions. Andrew has a way of teaching that makes learning music very approachable. He is patient and well thought out about the process. Always fun to watch on stage and a joy to work with.

Andrew is a fantastic teacher!
He will go at your pace and make sure he is focusing on what you really want to accomplish. not to mention he is an actual gigging musician so he plays a lot. If you want to play in a band or play with a group he has feedback on that information for you as well!
I personally don't think you could go wrong with a teacher like Andrew.

John R.

Mount Laurel, NJ

About John

My name is John. I am a graduate of Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA where I received a Bachelors of Music Performance on the guitar. I have moved back to South Jersey, and am looking for students.
My areas of expertise lie in metal/rock/progressive playing, songwriting and arranging. I also feel at home in the classical realm as far as orchestration and arranging go. I can teach various techniques on the guitar (including the fore mentioned styles) along with funk, blues, jazz, alternate picking, sweep picking, legato playing, hybrid picking, harmonizing, chord melody, odd meter, theory,
and ear training as well as all things beginner.
I am also proficient as a vocalist, drummer/percussionist, bassist, and can find my way around a piano.

*** Lesson Details ***
The lesson is what you make of it. Every student (and every teacher) is different. I can be very easy-going and laid back, or I can be extremely stern and strict. It all depends on the personality of the student, how seriously he/she takes music, and how much/how fast he/she is willing to learn. Some students prefer to take things slow and let material sink in (which I recommend), while others like to go through material fast and "jump around". The choice is yours, and I will do my best to adapt. I do, however believe one should never move forward until a strong foundation is built upon the current topic of education. First you crawl, then walk, then jog, THEN run.
i will use Musicians Institute curriculum as reference material along with any other books I have which pertain to the knowledge you seek.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Basement:Couple of amps, PA, couple of guitars, seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have guitars (electric,acoustic,and bass), cables, amps, metronome, tuner, music stands, (effects pedals, PA, mics, drums, hand percussion and piano if necessary). Student would need his or her own guitar and cable, and notebook w/ manuscript paper along with whatever else they may feel they need.(Tuner,etc.)

*** Specialties ***
Although I play many styles, I specialize in rock/metal/progressive styles as well as classical, although my classical technique could be considered more of a hybrid or a bit unorthodox in comparison to what is typically expected. Developing the ear as an all around reference to back up all other musical knowledge is my strongest method. I believe transcription helps reading immensely and putting theory in a musical context rather than just leaving it on paper helps the knowledge come to life. I exploit the origin of all things so that a strong foundation is built. If one knows where something comes from, then one can always build upon or subtract however they wish while still having a clear understanding of their options. In this case of course, we are dealing with the endless options and possibilities of music!

Matthew S.

Levittown, PA

About Matthew

I started playing trumpet in grade school and was in the marching band the first year of high school. I then switched to playing upright bass in the orchestra. This led to me being a part of the jazz band and playing instrumentals for school musicals. Upon graduation time, I received the gold medal for music performance in strings. I was also an AP music theory student. After, I pursued a bachelor's degree in music and took education courses. I have tutored music theory and given instrument lessons, but they were always self employed or from the university.

I wish to help others make music
an enjoying part of their lives, as it is in mine.

*** Lesson Details ***
For lessons, I like to get a feel of the student's current abilities and then start from there. I'm progressive in my methods and use a scaffolding technique. Going out of your comfort zone helps learning and development.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Fender Jazz Bass
Music Man SUB Bass
Ampeg amp

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students should have a logbook or notebook, staff paper, pencils, their instruments if applicable, and a metronome.

I bring extra staff paper and pencils just in case

*** Specialties ***
rock, jazz, funk, R&B, classical

Amanda has been such a wonderful instructor for my daughters! Not only does she understand music - but she understands children, and handles their ups and downs, motivation (or lack thereof) and quirks with charm and patience. I highly recommend her. Amanda has been excellent at communicating, she has been flexible when our scheduling needs changed, and she really gets involved with the kids. SO glad we found her!

She is the absolute best! Not only does she help build a foundation, but also helps the student achieve their goals. She is patient and always has a different way to explain things, if you don't understand. I would recommend her to any person, of any level, interested in getting a singing teacher.

Rachel is wonderful for so many reasons. She allows her students to feel comfortable and fills them with confidence. It had been over 6 years since the last time I sang publicly and I came to Rachel very nervous and filled with stage fright. With her as my vocal coach I am now more confident and a much stronger singer then I could have imagined and this is only after working with her for less then a year and I can not wait to see what she has in store for me next. She is truly a gifted teacher.
