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!
Taught piano to children ages 6-14.
Piano player, singer, and entertainer.
Played gigs both regionally and nationally with multiple bands. Played a variety of venues including famous places like the Fillmore West and the House of Blues New Orleans!
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.
Andy is very kind and friendly, learn a lot from him!
