Andrea has been a great voice lesson teacher for my daughter. My daughter felt comfortable singing in front of her even though she has anxiety when signing in front others. She's very relaxed and confident teacher and help her students to feel the same. And I must add, that she's a very easy person to get a hold of, and to communicate with at all times. She customizes the lessons to fit the student needs. I highly recommend her.

I gambled on Andrea, as most do when selecting an unknown person to guide us. After my first session, I feel good about my pick as so many of us are seeking to reach our potential, as I am so fervently and for ME, expression is vital and Andrea has the wisdom, as few do, to LISTEN to me so I believe we are off to a good start on what I hope is a great journey of learning/growing/expanding and realization of higher realms as I believe my success will come from Partnering with an individual who UNDERSTANDS individuality and uniqueness and thus will also grow and glow with me, truly a win/win situation

Being a student of Andrea's guitar class is really a blessing. She encourages, praises and gives instructions in such a simple and understandable manner which makes them easy to grasp. I love the 'tips' that she gives to 'spice-up' your music renditions. I have no hesitation in recommending any one to be a student of hers. She is really special in her tutoring and an exceptional teacher.

I used to be so shy singing in front of my husband and kids. However, because Andrea has an exceptional and extraordinary way to bring out the best in you, I am now able to sing freely in their presence. She continues to inspire me and challenge my ability because she’s confident that I can do more. She is also very flexible with my schedule.

Only had one singing lesson so far, but Andrea has been so great and made me feel at ease right away, even though I am a complete beginner. I feel like I've already learned so much in just one lesson! I am very excited to continue my singing lessons with her. She is very nice and easy to work with.

I wish I could give Andrea more than 5 stars! I started singing lessons with her two months ago (and as a complete novice) and her skill, patience and expert instruction has helped me to make tremendous improvements. Aside from being a wonderful teacher, she is also a wonderful human being. I am so grateful that I am working with Andrea and hope to continue with her far into the future. I highly endorse her as a teacher--for singing or for any of her other subject areas.

I have seen many of Andrea's recordings of songs written by her. The lyrics and melodies are beautiful and comforting. Andrea shows good knowledge of guitar playing and simple and beautiful chord progressions. She'll make a good guitar instructor for beginners.

Andrea is an excellent guitar instructor. She writes her own music, so she knows what she is talking about. She also cares about my learning. I highly recommend her if you are wanting online guitar lessons.

As an adult whose always wanted to learn the 6 string, I'd choose no one else than Andrea Cota. She's extremely professional, patient, & cares.
Andrea is talented . and I look forward to a long prosperous relationship with her.
Thank you Andrea for everything you do as a music teacher!

Posted Sep 4, 2019

Andrea is a performer that plays & sings music that she has written herself! She accompanies herself with the guitar while singing Christian, patriotic, and various other genres of music. Andrea's music speaks to me, and has touched my heart. I especially like her patriotic music, and the Christian song "Love Revival." I truly believe that that song could be a #1 hit and could go viral! I recommend Andrea as a performer, song writer, and inspirational friend!

Posted Sep 4, 2019

Andrea is one of my favorite artists.
She is multi talented . She writes many of her own songs She sings the vocals while playing guitar. Resulting in inspiring and uplifting songs. Any serious music student should seek out an accomplished artist like Andrea to learn from.. Learning from her would give the student a massive advantage..
I highly recommend Andrea and hope to be one if her students in near future.
Sincerely , Beverly

I am a professional guitarist and a college level guitar instructor and I've known Andrea for a few years now via Facebook and ReverbNation. My musical experiences with her have taught me that she loves music and she is very determined when she sets out on a song project and she sees it through to the very end. Knowing her, I feel that she would apply that determination and her talents to the students that she will be teaching . . . determined to help them to become good musicians. She would always seek success for them as her overall goal.

I don't take lessons from Andrea, I'm a local musician (guitarist) whom has taught 2 of Andrea's sons. Andrea has a got good musical talent and personality.
she is a patient and caring person whom is a good Christian and most of her songs are in the Christian music sector. they have a folky 60s vibe to them.
at the same time, she doesn't discriminate people or their background.

I would entrust Andrea to teach your beginner child because of her patience and her approach to the guitar itself.

Posted Sep 3, 2019

I like Andrea's style of music ~ very unique!! I like one of her earlier songs, "Save America"!! I also like "Spring Flowers"!! She also sings other inspirational songs. She learned to sing from her Dad and other vocal teachers through the years.

I have watched and listened to all of Andrea's videos. I enjoy the positive and uplifting message. Her singing and guitar playing is very professional. She is also very creative with her original material. I especially like the "Spring Flowers" video for its dreamy vibes.

Andrea is a very creative ,focused and patient individual. She comes up with unique chord voicings and arrangements , yet she manages to keeps things simple enough that beginners can learn from, as well as, emulate the way she plays. She helps people to play more creatively while bringing her "out-of-the-box" style to her teaching. I particularly like her 'Bossa Nova Kiss" song.

She is very creative and inspiring with music and also a very talented singer and performer. I am astonished by her amazing teaching skills and sparkling personality. Thank you for sharing your beautiful voice and lessons about singing/music with me and the world!!
