Online Guitar Teacher

Students who study with me can expect for their lessons to be top-quality, personalized, and above all, extremely fun sessions that will cater to the students musical backgrounds, interests, and needs. I create extremely organized and specifically focused lessons so that students feel comfortable, not pressured, while learning their craft. The lessons I teach are a combination of developmental sight reading music, learning student chosen songs (depending on ability), inspiring and encouraging creative abilities, warm-up and strengthening exercises, proper technique, listening for internal hearing, composition dynamics, scales, fingerings, chords, and overall really how to get a great sound and feel from your guitar.

After 3 months of lessons together, students will have started learning several key elements to becoming an outstanding guitar player. They will have learned proper form and technique, warm-up/skill-building exercises, to read basic notation, and several scales. ...

Fantastic and gifted instructor.

Andrew is very patient and caring. You can tell how passionate he is about playing. I took up lessons again after a 3 year hiatus and I have learned more in the past few lessons then I did in my prior 5 years of playing.
Grant Robertson
Andrew is the best online lesson experience I've had. He's always super-positive, always encouraging, and just generally has a great attitude. His lessons are very well adapted to the online format, giving you video clips of the important moments in your lesson and links to extra resources. I've tried multiple instructors and although Andrew isn't the most affordable teacher on TakeLessons, he is worth every penny. After trying several I chose to continue with Andrew and increase our cadence to 3 hours a week. I'm seeing improvement in my skills nearly every day with his guidance!

Although I'm a fairly new learner, I chose Robert as a teacher because he teaches everything from beginner to advanced. I'm glad I did -- his depth of knowledge is clear and he understands my questions quickly and can answer from different angles to make sure I understand. After just two lessons I feel like I've gained a lot already and am excited to continue learning.

"Tom S.

For the two years that I took guitar lessons with Tom S. I found that he possessed a real sensitivity to what I, the student, wanted to do musically. Tom often went out of his way to find supplemental material to augment the learning experience. If I wanted to learn something a bit beyond my capability he'd find a way for me to build to the next skill level without ever discouraging me. Proper technique was always stressed and the payoff was worth it. His respect for the music and the craft of guitar playing is something that impresses me still."
