My daughter took private lessons with Andrew for 3 years and he is absolutely fantastic! He is patient and really knows how to teach cello technique and musicality. He is brilliant and I highly recommend him. I am really sorry that he moved away to play with an orchestra in another state, but good for him. We miss him! He was awesome!

My son thinks that Andrew is an amazing instructor! Andrew is a terrific teacher and there is no one out there that can compare. Andrew is such a super, super teacher and I would highly recommend others for lessons with him.

Patient and Understanding I'm always completely comfortable and feel relaxed with him teaching. He is always punctual and is good at reaching out if there are any problems with the scheduled lesson time. He is always patient and understanding when I make mistakes or don't understand what is explained. Also, he never gets frustrated with me when I don't do something suggested to me and is always calm. I have been getting lessons from him for over a year and I highly recommend him to others interested in guitar.
