Obtained an Associates in Arts at Butler County Community College, El Dorado, KS.
Obtained a Bachelors in Music Education from Wichita State University, Wichita, KS.
I'm an accomplished accompanist and vocalist, with 10 plus years of expertise. Currently, I’m a volunteer worship leader at church, for over 6 years; helping other musicians fulfill their ultimate potential through training and education. Collaborate with other musicians for worship opportunities and projects. Been able to facility vocal training, how to lead a worship experience and which instrumentation and vocal concepts to are appropriate.
Played piano at Von Maur, for 6 months where I utilized my piano skills to provide entertainment and guest requests.
Currently have many different music students, where each week we assess their strengths that fulfill their ultimate potential, through activities and diverse learning concepts.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that all musicians have the abilities to fulfill their ultimate potential; by assessing students learning styles, accessing community resources and just having fun learning musical concepts.
Curriculum examples that I would utilize for piano would be Adventures in Piano and Succeeding at the Piano. For the vocal students I utilize Exceptional Musicianship, created by Hal Leonard for accurate vocal techniques.
Within 3 months the students will have opportunities to demonstrate their musical abilities. I will provide opportunities for students to demonstrate musical expertise through recitals and other events.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Main Room: electric keyboard (full 88 keys), couch, TV, and a chair, book cases, parents can sit in the lesson (encouraged)

*** Travel Equipment ***
The expectation is that the students must have access to a piano and audio equipment for their success.

*** Specialties ***
The musical genres I'm an expert include Broadway, Show Choir, Faith-Based, Classical, Jazz, Pop, Performing Arts, Acting, Staging, Costuming, Props. I believe that students need to have access with various musical styles that will aid their musical abilities.

I have been taking lessons with Andrew for 8 months now, and I couldn't be happier or more grateful.

Andrew is extremely talented and knowledgeable. He is continually researching new methods to help me improve my working theory knowledge and musical skills. He is always providing me with challenging objectives that help me grow as a musician. He never makes me feel like I'm not doing well but instead is incredibly professional, fun, and supportive and helps me work through difficult pieces.

His lessons are meticulously tailor-made to fit the student. I started out desiring to improve my vocal skills but later asked Andrew to incorporate some advanced piano skills along with my vocal lessons. Since then, he has developed unique lesson plans to include singing and playing piano together and even composing and performing my own unique songs.

As far as scheduling, Andrew has been very flexible and understanding. It seems like every other week, my schedule changes and Andrew has been able to flex and meet with me at varying times.

Overall, it is clear that Andrew's focus is all about helping his students develop confidence and be the best that they can be. He always asks about my personal life with genuine interest and is engaged during conversation. I have never taken formal vocal lessons before and was not sure what to expect. I would recommend him to new students of all ages and levels. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

I've been learning from Andrew for a few months now, and I honestly couldn't be happier. He's been very patient and It's very obvious that he's not just doing it for the money, but that he genuinely cares. I've been going through things in my Personal life and he's been very helpful and supportive when he didn't have to be.

His musical knowledge is very impressive. He's taught me to sing everything from musicals to heavy metal.

I'm also learning to play the piano from Andrew. He has great methods. He makes it fun, which helps a lot. He always asks for input and never forces me to do anything I'm not comfortable with.

All in all, Andrew is a great teacher, but an even better guy. I'm entirely satisfied and have gained a friend as well. I couldn't be happier, and would recommend him to anyone, regardless of the style of music they want to learn.

Andrew has been a phenomenal instructor for my son. He is very knowledgeable, creative, and resourceful. When it comes to scheduling, he has been very flexible and understanding with school, sports, and family obligations. My son's ability and confidence in his acting has been bolstered by Mr. Andrew's professional, engaging, and supportive lessons.

wonderful piano teacher

My son is 6 years old and recently started taking piano lessons with Mr. Young. He is a wonderful teacher, full of energy and his lessons are very engaging and age appropriate. My son loves his piano lessons with Mr Young, he even practices everyday on his own without being told.
