Hello!
My name is Andrew, and I am a passionate music producer and teacher living in beautiful Laguna Niguel, CA. I have been living in, and teaching in Orange County for the past three years. In December 2014, I graduated from Musician's Institute with an Audio Engineering degree and Music Composition Certification; after completing these educational qualifications, I moved to San Clemente and began my own business, Custom Audio Solutions. Through this business I offer audio consultation and live sound services, and well as fully comprehensive music production and post production services.
I also offer private lessons on these subjects: Audio Engineering, Music Production, Guitar performance, Music Theory and composition and fundamental to intermediate piano skills & synthesis.
I have over 15 years of experience playing Guitar, Piano and writing music. I was also an exemplary Product Specialist for Guitar Center for nearly 5 years while I completed school.

I've had a few teachers over the years, but none better than Andrew. He has a very outgoing personality, and has the experience to get you from point a to point very rapidly if you do your part. I highly recommend him.
