Acoustic Guitar

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
My musical career has brought me in touch with Grammy winning musicians and legendary performers. I've appeared as a soloist with orchestra and performed in Off-Broadway musicals. I received my Masters in Guitar Performance from the Manhattan School of Music, one of the top conservatories in the United States. I've taken the lessons and tips from my world-class teachers and have shared it with my students for the past five years. I teach all ages, all styles, and have experience teaching in private and group lessons. My students also have access to seasonal performance opportunities, so they can share their talent with family and friends!

Andrew definitely has been my best teacher yet. He’s helped me with song writing, theory, auditions, and technique. I was auditioning for a touring musical, and they asked if I had anymore guitar skills, so Andrew was able to arrange and coach me within a week and I got the gig! Seriously amazing. Also a wonderful temperament and very patient. Thank you Andrew!!!
