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.

I have really enjoyed the journey to this point and am looking forward to more great things in the future.

My 10 year old son has been taking lessons with Andrew for several months and we couldn't be happier. He's very talented and can pick up the tune of any song you throw at him. My son has learned to play songs featured in his favorite movies, which makes learning them much more enjoyable. Andrew has a way of making each lesson fun while still teaching new skills. He's a friendly, cool teacher and very patient with kids. He's flexible with schedules and responds to texts quickly. I highly recommend Andrew for guitar lessons for anyone who wants to learn.

I have been taking lessons with Andrew for almost two years. I have enjoyed every lesson and have gained knowledge and skill beyond my expectations!! Even when I’ve had challenges in practice time, Andrew meets me where I’m at and has the ability to make sure that I finish the lesson with challenges, new goals and guitar knowledge! I highly recommend him!

About Matthew J

I currently work as a freelance music producer as well as a guitar/bass teacher and as a music software teacher.
I have been playing guitar for 18 years and teaching guitar and bass for 9 years. I have worked as a private and group guitar instructor at several music education establishments in the Chicago, Los Angeles and in Eugene, Oregon as well. I have also worked as a band coach for youth groups, where I taught them cover songs, helped them write their own songs and prepared them for live performances.
I studied at Columbia College Chicago majoring in Classical Guitar, Latin Music and Music Theory.
I started taking private guitar lessons as a teenager for several years and played in my high school jazz band along with original rock bands. While in high school, I was able to study with popular Chicago rock virtuoso guitarist Kev

in M. Buck, where I first learned music theory and was inspired to be more studious with the guitar.

I have performed in rock/modern bands for 12 years as an electric guitarist and also for 4 years as a solo acoustic guitarist mixing Bossa Nova, Classical Guitar and original compositions into my performance repertoire.

*** Lesson Details ***
For Music Software Lessons - Logic Pro X , Ableton Live, Garageband, Pro Tools and Reason-

Topics I like to cover - capturing correct recording levels.....editing, adding effects/basic mixing, automation .....creating drum grooves with loops and midi drums..........songwriting and music theory.........Live capabilities using Ableton (for backing tracks and live performance)........Quick commands to easily navigate through software.....

For instrument lessons-
I'm a patient teacher that's passionate about guitar and helping students reach their musical goals whether they are casual players or serious musicians. For beginners, I use Hal Leonard instructional guitar books along with paper handouts and sheet music. I believe it's important for everyone to learn the fundamentals of music to create a strong base of skills in order to continue playing and learning music throughout one's life. For more experienced players, I like to teach various modern rock/pop songs, classical guitar songs, picking patterns, finger picking patters, improvisation, scales and music theory. I teach nylon string acoustic, steel string acoustic guitar and electric guitar and bass
I believe the most basic goal for a guitar student is to be able to play a song in it's entirety, whether it's by themselves or with other musicians/music students. I believe that some of the most important music skills are learned while actually playing with other musicians. It is crucial when learning an instrument to be able to play in 'real time'; playing music with a steady sense of rhythm.

*** Specialties ***
I teach Classical Guitar, Brazilian Jazz, bass guitar, rock, pop, blues, funk and folk guitar using method books, sheet music and guitar tablature.

About Carly

Hello, my name is Carly. I'm currently pursuing a bachelor's degree in music education at the University of Louisville. Throughout the past couple of semesters I've been learning many different methods for teaching, privately and publicly. I have 6 students of my own, and would love to expand my studio and take in more cellists. I've been playing cello about 10 years and love to share my passion with others. The most effective way of learning about anything is by actually doing it!

About Chris

I am originally from Houston, TX and began playing the guitar at the age of eight and began studying classical guitar at age ten.

While studying jazz at the High School for the Visual and Performing Arts in Houston TX, I began working professionally as a guitarist, playing locally in clubs and at corporate functions. It was also during this time that I first began teaching private music lessons at my local music store.

While attending the University of Miami under music scholarship, I performed in the award-winning University of Miami Concert Jazz Band and played with jazz greats Wynton Marsalis, Joe Lovano and others. I also played in several bands and with numerous local artists.

Upon graduating from college, I coached a jazz guitar ensemble of five undergraduate guitarists and a rhythm section at the University of Miami and

also led the jazz guitar program at Miami’s arts magnet high school, “New World School of the Arts” and taught jazz improvisation to a large class of multi-instrumentalists.

In 2000, I moved to New York City and began playing guitar for neo-soul songstress Angie Stone. We toured nationally in support of her album, “Mahogany Soul” and appeared on the “Tonight Show with Jay Leno”, “Live at the Apollo” and BET’s “106th and Park”. During this time I also performed, recorded and/or toured the US and Japan with Interscope Records avant-garde R&B artist Bilal Oliver, African pop singer and superstar fusion bassist Richard Bona and Japanese jazz pioneer and saxophonist Sadao Watanabe. Along with balancing performing, songwriting and recording, I taught guitar, bass and piano privately to a wide variety of students.

After moving to Japan in 2004, I performed with numerous bands and artists including Japanese taiko drummer Isaku Kageyama. Our CD, “Hybrid Soul”, a creative collaboration fusing musical elements from Japanese folk songs, psychedelic rock and ambient music was released in 2011.

I have over 30 years' experience as both a performer and teacher and this helps me instill confidence in my students and I am able to help them quickly progress on the guitar and have fun doing it!

“Chris was hired by our family several years ago to teach our two teenage sons to play guitar... His musical talent and knowledge along with his focus, maturity, creativeness and personality allows his students to receive his lessons with enthusiasm and retention." - Nancy C. (parent)

I am a novice guitar player who knew a few basic chords before enrolling with lessons from Chris. Since i had an elementary knowledge of playing, Chris asked some questions before we got started on what I was struggling with, and hurdles i was facing.

From there each successive lesson we attacked those weak areas of my play. I was able to get incrementally better each week from the advice and handouts he offered, overall elevating my ability to play dramatically.

Chris is a very down to earth guy - and despite being an excellent musician was not even a little pretentious in carefully explaining concepts that were basic, but that i needed to know.

Overall, Chris takes the time to very effectively communicate how you can improve your guitar skills, and if you put in the practice from his instruction - you'll see the results.

He's also a nice guy and very easy to talk to.

About Kelly

Hi there! My name is Kelly. I have been playing violin since I was 4. I have always enjoyed playing the violin especially when I was able to express it though playing in a local church. I learned to hear the music and feel the emotion that a violin player can receive. I’m excited to teach you the basics to violin from the beginning.

"It was a great ffirst lesson

There are so many good instructors on this site it was very hard to choose one. I was somewhat nervous about my choice, not
knowing how the "chemistry" would be. My first session with Margo was excellent. I found her to be very light in spirit. She is very pleasant and relaxed, and has great skill in helping you to relax. She has a wonderful sense of humor which makes the session not intense. In the first session she helped to reach notes that I have never been able to reach. I feel that my experience with her will continue to be very pleasant and that I will reach my goals. I would definitely recommend her to everyone."

"Dr. Leonard has been my daughter's cello teacher for six years. She has been amazing in every way. My daughter has enjoyed playing the cello, in large, pa
rt due to Dr. Leonard's teaching style which is intellectually stimulating, humorous, inspiring, and caring. She is a relatable to my teenager. We have never thought of moving to a new teacher because Dr. Leonard always brings something new to the table in her lessons."

"Concetta has a lot of excellent suggestions for improving singing performance. The typed notes she sends after each lesson were a tremendous asset as well
. In only five lessons, she improved my daughters stage presence and taught her how to engage an audience. We were always short term clients, but Concetta more than met our goals and expectations. I would very much recommend her for any level of voice and performance. Excellent teacher"
