Andrea has a really solid method for teaching guitar efficiently. She is encouraging, caring and has a good personality. My daughter really clicks with her, and looks forward to "seeing" her each week.

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.

Andrea has a most beautiful voice. She has shown me about song choices and writing lyrics and how to sing them with the right tune.
Her most recent song "Message of Love" and the video opened your heart!

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!

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!

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.

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.
