Lesson Details

Acoustic Guitar

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
I have been playing guitar in various capacities for over 40 years. I have taught beginners and intermediate students for the last 8 years. What ever your desires are relating to guitar, be it learning to play songs from a song book, learning to figure songs out by ear, improve your current playing abilities, I can help! And make it fun!

I have taught students ranging in age from 8 yrs old, to adults in their 50s. If you enjoy music, and want to dive deeper into it, just to play for your own enjoyment, or, if you have an itch to learn to play in a band or jam with some friends, I can get you there!!

Teaching since:
2008

I started playing guitar in the late 60s. Started playing professionally for approximately 5 years around 1978. Played music off and on until 1993 when I got involved with my churches worship band. Began teaching around 2008 at Sidekick Studios.

I teach beginners and intermediate students of all types, from 9 yr olds wanting to play Taylor Swift songs to 55 yr old guys wanting to learn blues. I can play and teach a variety of styles including country, pop, rock, blues, folk and introduction to jazz.

I get the most satisfaction when a student latches on to an idea and runs with it, or when a student thinks they can't do something and together we work and accomplish it!

I am going into my TENTH year of teaching and plan on being around a long while!

Also, I am currently playing in an acoustic rock duo and also enjoy playing solo acoustic gigs at small venues around town.

Andy started teaching Pranav at age 6. Pranav took lessons from Andy for over 8 years. Andy has a wonderful encouraging style. He knows when to be firm and when to be kind. We moved to China, otherwise we would still be there every Saturday :) when we return in the summer, Andy is always on our list of people to visit.
