Andy has been involved in music his entire working life playing the piano, home keyboard and home organ (not classical style) for over 40 years. He and his wife recently moved from the UK where he studied piano, achieving a jazz piano performance degree. He went on to work in the music industry for many years. This included working for a number of music education organizations producing materials for the Technics Music Academy and Yamaha Music School systems, training teachers for these systems, many piano / keyboard performances across the UK and Europe plus over 30 visits to Japan to work on instrument design for Yamaha and Casio. However, he continued to teach piano / keyboard on a private basis through all these activities. Teaching is his passion and he is a friendly, positive and reliable person who has assisted many students of all ages and all levels to improve their musical skills. He can teach all styles of music but has an expertise for Jazz (improvisation, jazz scales, chord structures, etc) Blues, American Song Book and artists such as Billy Joel, Elton John, Sting etc. He will come to your home and teach on your instrument which is very important. He will shape the tuition process to the individual needs of the student and looks forward to meeting and helping with you reach your musical goals.
