With many years working as a composer, performer, & teacher, I strive for my students to simply enjoy exploring the language of music while embracing the discipline of the learning process, whether it is through playing pop, jazz, or even their own compositions!

About Andrew Y.

To me, as both a teacher and student, the most valuable skill is to enjoy-- to enjoy every moment that comes, even the less pleasurable ones, for the true treasure lies in not the end goal but rather the path. To most young folks, the less pleasurable moments usually mean the boring ones such as studying or going to class.

Music is something that people enjoy when it comes to listening but is notorious for being just as unpleasant as any other subject, like Math for instance, when it comes to learning.

Learning takes discipline. Whenever I teach, I see myself as a navigator who guides students through their musical journey. As music is a language, my goal is for my students to become fluent and communicative in so -- being to read different forms of music notation, play songs and melodies by ear, and come up with their own compositions, too-- and always while striving for that goal, my hope is for them to embrace both the fun and the less fun aspects of learning.

My 9-year-old daughter has been taking piano lessons with Andy for about a year and a half. When she started, she was brand new to music lessons and had never even tried to play an instrument- now she reads notes, plays a wide variety of songs, and has a whole new appreciation for music! Andy keeps my daughter motivated, engaged, and excited to learn by really tailoring his instruction to her interests and needs. Excellent piano teacher, thank you Andy!!

Andy is a thoughtful teacher who clearly spends considerable time figuring out how to tailor the lesson to the needs of the student. He combines rhythm activities and note reading and theory in ways that are fun, and creative, and help keep young students engaged and excited to learn. In the several months since my seven-year-old started, he reads music better than I do, but more importantly, he loves playing on the piano.

When my five year old started showing interest in the piano I knew it was time to start lessons. Andy has been great at turning a simple interest into a new ability. Our son is six now and I feel like he is better than me. He is able to recreate songs he hears as well as a little bit of free style. He's no Mozart of course, but Andy's patience and consistent training and encouragement have come a long way. I highly recommend him.
