Andy is a great guitar teacher. He was prepared for every lesson and really helped get our daughter excited about guitar. We really appreciated his patience and positive attitude!

He was very patient with my child which was a first timer! He motivated her to want to play. Very comfortable to be around! I would definitely hire him again!

Andy was such a great teacher. My 7 year old son looked forward to his lessons with Andy every week. We were very bummed we had to stop lessons because of moving out of state. Andy has such a great way of teaching and has such patience with kids.
