2016

I am a member of a progressive rock band and have played guitar for over 10 years, and bass for 9. I give beginner and intermediate students of all ages a relaxed one-on-one environment in which they can learn to play the guitar, or build upon their current skillsets.

I'm very open to the students' musical interests when structuring lessons. Each student's needs and interests will be met in a teaching experience tailored to the individual. It's easiest to learn an instrument when you get to learn the stuff you're interested in, after all!
I look forward to helping you find passion in playing the guitar, and growing as a musician!

Genres of music I am best with: Rock, Metal, Blues, Latin, Jazz, Funk

Guitar · In studio

I have been taking guitar lessons with Andrew, and he has been an excellent tutor. Though I started without too much experience in music or in guitar playing, Andrew demonstrated a lot of patience to ensure that I master the basics. His patience is definitely a rare trait for a musician who is as accomplished as Andrew, and in my opinion demonstrates not only his commit to music, but also his passion for sharing the joy of guitar to everyone. As a newcomer to learning this amazing instrument, I could not ask for a better instructor.

Kojo is an instructor who pushes his students to perform their best. He ensures you understand the topic and goes into much detail about music and teaching it. His passion shows in each and every lesson
