I minored in Piano at Broward College and have played professionally for over 35 years. I have been teaching beginner and intermediate piano for over 20 years. I can play by ear and read music as well. I combine theory, ear training, improvising, as well as sight-singing and have and will again offer group piano classes.

This is my first experience with a vocal teacher and I was a bit nervous. Andy is very knowledgable and friendly and I'm looking forward to my next lesson.

I've been trying to teach myself guitar for 8 years now, just bits and pieces of a lot of songs, but after taking lessons from Andy for the last 2 month's, I can now play almost 40 songs all the way thru, and getting ready to put a band together, I couldn't have done it without Andy, He is an Awesome Teacher, Very Easy to work with, I would recommend taking lessons from Andy, If you want to take your guitar playing to the Next Level.

Andy is a great musician, teacher and person. He doesn't just understand music, he lives it. He is very patient and supportive with people and his talent definitely needs to be passed on to as many people who are lucky enough to get the chance!

I had looked at several people before settling on Andy for vocal lessons and I'm very happy I did. Even after a few lessons, I've noticed large strides in progress. He's very diligent and not complacent at all. He has stacks of books about voices and vocal faults- he's constantly trying to become better so you can be sure he'll do the same for you.

I've been very happy with my lessons so far and am giddy to see continued progress under Andy.

I have been working with Andy for almost 9 months and there's a reason for such longevity. He has proven to be a great mentor,encouraging me to try different songs and techniques which help me to go beyond what i think i'm able to do. He also shows great concern in teaching musical theory, which he explains with such passion and understanding of the craft that it's impossible not to be inspired by it.
Overall, Andy is a magnificent teacher. Reliable, inspiring, passionate and dedicated to what each individual student wants to learn.
