I'm an experienced player, so I can't exactly say that he'd be good for someone who's just picking up a guitar. But he does an excellent job teaching technicality and musicality, which is something that many teachers lack these days. When I looked for a teacher I wanted someone who would help me better myself as a musician in a style I wasn't very familiar with. By musician, I mean someone who is not only technically proficient, but also very musical and a very good interpreter of music. So far he's helped me a lot in all of those aspects, while managing to keep a comfortable learning pace. I'd recommend him to anyone who really wants to push themselves musically.
Best instructor ever! Very patient, and has an instinctive ability to understand how a student best learns, and focuses on that style, thus producing results I never dreamed I could accomplish. It is a joy to work with Andre.
This teacher is wonderful
Andre is an excellent guitar teacher. Very encouraging and helpful. Understands my ability and interest.
THIS IS REALLY WORKING FOR ME.
I am very confident that at the end of this quarter Ill be able to read music.
I was so excited to begin guitar lessons, and after my first lesson, I was really looking forward to the months ahead! Andre has a great way of teaching. He takes an interest in finding out how you learn best, and adapts to your learning style. Andre has all the patience in the world! He is extremely knowledgeable and also makes each lesson so much fun!
It's early in my lessons and I am a true beginner, but so far Andre has been great. I am learning finger picking and music reading. Andre is perfect for this.
