Lesson Details

Acoustic Guitar

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I can help you develop the skills you need in order to achieve your musical goals. I believe a well rounded musician has more room to grow, and my experience in a variety of styles will allow me to help you do that. The lessons will cover chords, technique, theory, musicality, ear training, and more. We'll dig into various genres including folk, rock, blues, jazz, and gypsy swing, as well as basic finger-picking, comping, and improvising. We can learn your favorite songs as well!

Ages 6+ and special needs

Teaching since:

I have a Bachelors of Music Composition from Brooklyn College, and I'm currently finishing a Masters degree. I've been playing music professionally for 27 years, spanning a wide range of styles. My knowledge of different genres gives me a unique perspective for teaching.
I've been entertaining at the piano for 15 years, playing guitar for 25+, and began my musical career primarily as a drummer with a variety of bands. I'm classically trained as a percussionist, and I studied jazz piano at the University of Kentucky before finishing my degree at Brooklyn College.

I can make the piano, drumset, or guitar approachable for traditional and non-traditional students alike. I offer a strong foundation in technique, theory, and musicality, and can teach you popular music styles and improvisation as well. I look forward to working with you!

Andy is a gem! I had been away from the piano for, oh, about 30 years. He made me feel comfortable diving back in and taught with patience and humor. I couldn't ask for a better instructor! His love of music is infectious.
