I place a strong emphasis on fundamentals like technique, theory and musicality. By taking a measured and detail oriented approach I can help you make quick progress through whatever musical style you'd like.

About Andrew H.

I'm a focused but easygoing guitarist and musician with over a decade of experience teaching students of various skill levels and backgrounds. I enjoy helping students discover their love of music and reach their personal musical goals, whatever they may be.

I started teaching as the guitar technique tutor at my local community college before striking off on my own. In 2014, I went back to school to complete my bachelor's degree in guitar performance, after which I received a master's degree from the prestigious San Francisco Conservatory, where I had the privilege if working with some of the finest musicians in the field today. I would love to help you hone your musical skills!

Andrew is such a great teacher! I'm a beginner guitar player who wanted to learn some of the basics and work on my technique, and Andrew was so patient and really took the time to work with me. Very easy-going and helpful, even though I know I'm not the best player. He clearly knows what he's doing when it comes to anything guitar-related and I cannot wait to set up another lesson. I already feel more confident in my abilities! Thanks Andrew!
