I started playing music at the age of 3. Hailing from a long line of musicians, my first musical experiences were vocal performance & the drum set. In junior high, I expanded my skill set to the piano. My skills were honed & perfected in the Latin Jazz/Pop super-group ‘Soulsa Caliente’. I later organized my own multi-genre band and performed in various venues throughout the city of Houston, TX & southern regions of the U.S. My summer months were spent participating and teaching in the Diaz Music Institute’s Latin Jazz Workshop conducted annually by Jose Antonio Diaz, Horace Young, Noe Marmolejo & other great musical heavyweights. My diligence, focus, and perfectionism began to shine before I even graduated from high school. The most notable were: All State jazz drummer #1 ranking

I've loved music since I was able to walk. When I was 5 or 6, I would listen to my mother's stereo system, with Jim Croce playing on the 8-Track tape deck.....(ok, so I'm aging myself a little bit). I would lay on the floor in between the speakers which were turned inward toward my ears. I could lay there for hours, tapping my toes to "Bad Bad Leroy Brown", "Roller Derby Queen", "You Don't Mess Around with Jim", and many others. I would also listen to the Beatles, Seargent Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band", and "Revolution" and be completely taken away. I didn't realize it then, but what captivated me were the songs that were written to tell stories, and the music that brought the stories to life. As I grew into my early teens, I got into Kiss, Alice Cooper, Rush, Ted Nugent, and Jimi ...
Music is my life. As cheesy as that phrase goes, for me, it holds true. I'm Andrew. Everything I do and have been doing has been geared towards music. I've been in one working/gigging band or other without break for the past 8 years. I began intensely learning to play guitar at the age of 9 and have not stopped. The second I started learning I knew that that was what I wanted to do. Fast forward to now, and here I am loving every minute of it. I took lessons of my own as a kid, which helped shape me greatly. I then picked up bass at the age of 13. I've taught personalized lessons for over 5 years now without a single complaint. At this point in my musical career, the majority of my experience and attitude has come from being "in the field". I've played South By South West, ...
I have been making a living solely through performing, recording, or teaching music since 2005. I began playing guitar in 7th grade (1994) and have been in bands and performing ever since. In that time I have learned all about the music industry from playing to recording to the business to teaching to running live sound to touring and everything in between and beyond. I have been fortunate enough to play with many amazing musicians throughout my career. Most notably I was in two bands that had much success. In those bands I was able to open up many shows and festivals with national/platinum selling acts. I also made a living touring the US for 7 years as a headliner and/or opening act playing in front of 10’s to 1,000’s of people every night. My approach to teaching is to find
Songwriting is arguably my greatest talent. I encourage you look me up on YouTube or iTunes.
