Overview

I have been playing and studying music in a variety of settings since 2008. I have performance experience with both classical ensembles and contemporary rock bands. This has given me experience in writing music, playing music, and ensemble management all within a wide range of musical styles.

I have been training people in various fields since 2013. I am currently a junior instructor at MTS Studios in Sunnyvale CA where I teach a variety of instruments, including guitar, bass guitar, drums, piano and ukulele.

I am looking forward to helping you further your musical goals and aspirations. Feel free to send a question if you want to ask about anything before starting up.

Before taking lessons, I had picked up some chords and strumming patterns from the Internet. Over the 10 lessons with Andrew, I learned music theory fundamentals, how to practice the guitar on my own, how to pick out chords from any song, and even got to participate in group lessons. Even though I had to stop taking lessons because work got too busy, I learned a lot and now have a better idea how to improve my guitar skills.

Andrew is a great teacher. He's super nice, very patient, and knows how to work with a complete beginner like me. I started taking piano lessons a couple months ago and I already feel like I've learned a lot.

Granted I have only taken a couple of sessions but so far, Andrew has been flexible, kind, and professional. I like that he introduces you to theory along with teaching the basics. Overall I think he cares about doing a good job and seems invested in your learning!

Andrew is such a great teacher and very patient! We appreciate how he is able to tailor each lesson comfortably to our needs without overwhelming the experience to playing instruments for the first time! Keep up the great work!

It was my first time, so the jury is still out, but Andrew is a fantastic teacher. He teaches fundamentals instead of jumping right into songs. Able to adapt teaching to various age ranges. We are excited to continue.

I have only taken a few lessons so far, but here is why I give a 5 star rating. Andrew is very professional, patient and friendly. He has adapted his teaching to my learning style so that the lessons are very relaxing. And he is including music theory so that the instrument actually makes sense. Thank you!

Andrew is a fantastic teacher that is always looking for new ways to help his students reach their goals. He is constantly looking to get better, not only as a musician, but as in instructor. He can definitely help anyone learn a new instrument or help hone your skills if you are a bit more advanced!
