A graduate of the esteemed Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. Andrew has spent over 10 years instructing beginning and intermediate students in every age range and in various styles. Utilizing honed techniques learned both in school and in the professional and live band setting, Andrew draws on classical foundation and a wide range of styles (including pop, jazz, blues and fiddle) to create lessons tailored to each students individual needs and goals.

please visit:

*** Lesson Details ***
Students who study with Andrew receive a fresh experience of the violin. Unlike a "one-fits-all" model, Andrew creates a unique lesson plan tailored to each individual. This allows the student to learn and progress at their own speed and in the style(s) that they are interested in. While every student receives a solid foundation in theory, the engaging and performing aspects of music are encouraged in a fun and positive environment.

Please note: I am currently only accepting students who are able to meet every week.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons are taught in a large professional studio complete with piano and other musical equipment.

*** Travel Equipment ***
student must provide own violin and accompanying needs.

*** Specialties ***
Classical foundations, with options to progress in improvisation, rock, jazz and world music

Andrew is the best!

Andrew is a fantastic teacher! I came to him as a beginner and it has been fun and I'm happy with what I've learned thus far. He's patient, does a great job explaining things, moves at a good pace, and his sense of humor is just a nice perk :)

I would highly recommend him for all skills levels and age groups, all around great guy
