I grew up in a musical family and have been surrounded by music my whole life. It was at the age of 12 that I took my first steps toward becoming a musician, and I'm very glad I made that decision! I would like to help others who are taking their first steps towards music and show them just how rewarding it can be! I've been working as a musician in the San Diego music scene since I was a teenager. 

*** Lesson Details ***
I want students to have fun during their lesson, and I want them to learn music that THEY want to learn. But I also want students to know the importance of dedication and practice because this is what leads to progress on ones instrument. Students can expect to learn theory, read music, read chord charts, and create a repertoire.

Andrew is very knowledgeable, professional, and a fun instructor. He taught me fundamentals, a little bit of music theory, and even playing style tips. I very much enjoy his lessons and strongly recommend him.

I learned a lot from Andrew! I came to Andrew knowing nothing about music or about guitar playing, and he was very patient and explained things in a way that was easy for me to understand. When my son gets a little older I'll be sending him to Andrew so he can start learning too!

Andrew is a very talented musician. He knows how to teach the instrument as well as incorporate theory into the lesson. He motivates me constantly and pushes me to improve. He is very professional and you will immediately sense his passion for music. I highly recommend Andrew to teach you music theory, technique, and share his love of music.
