Our son started taking a weekly lesson with Andrew in August. He looks forward to the lessons each week, is challenged, held accountable, and provided with a great role model as a musician. It has been enjoyable to hear our son's development over the past few months.
Jennie
My son really enjoys lessons with Andrew. He challenges him enough that he is improving his playing with each lesson. Now, my son's high school band teachers are talking about moving him up in the various bands. It's really helped improve my son's confidence too.
I highly recommend Andrew as a teacher and know that you will be pleased with the results!
