Barry Harris, the great Jazz pianist, and educator says, “I have such a ball in my classes, and I learn so much from my students. They probably don’t realize that I come to school here, too. I’m just the oldest member of the class. I wish everyone could experience the blessing of learning new things all the time.”

The above statement describes how I feel when I am teaching. I have been playing and performing for over 20 years in many capacities, and still, music continues to teach me new things every time. Not only do I want to share that experience with you, but I also want to guide you into having that experience for yourself.

About Ian

I started on the violin when I was about 8 years old. I began with classical music, studying in the Suzuki method. I loved my time in the Suzuki method; I wasn’t always the best student; however, in hindsight, I am incredibly grateful for the experience with my teacher, the method, and the strong

Hello, hope you're having a terrific day!

To begin describing my lessons I have to say that I am an energetic and positive human being overall! I truly believe that we are able to learn anything faster if we have fun in the process. The online sessions that I'm offering will focus on specific exercises that will help students develop their technique and their musicality at the same time. My classroom is located in my recording studio, which is a professionally treated space. A great advantage of learning with my setup is that we can also focus on recording techniques, achieving a professional sound, editing, mixing and mastering, which are essential skills that a modern musician should acquire.

P.S. I'm a professional musician with more than 15 years of experience.

Lessons are tailored towards the students goals and abilities. Play with or without a pick, learn popular songs, or write your own.

Over the last 25+ years of teaching guitar, I've found that most of my students want to learn to play popular songs they've heard on the radio (I teach all decades of songs, from 1920's to current hits, and I "take requests").

I can also teach note-reading and music theory (optional- recommended for those who want to major or minor in music in college, and for those who already play another treble-clef instrument).

My goal is to build confidence and make learning fun. I hone in on a students' strengths and weaknesses, build on the strengths and gradually improve the weaknesses.

Acoustic guitar is the most social musical instrument there is! So get started! I promise you will have a non-threatening, relaxed environment to learn in, and go at a pace that is just right for you.

About Carla

Music is my LIFE! After 30 years of teaching at music camps, music stores, 3 colleges and my home, I completely understand that the lessons are all about YOU, the student: what you want to learn, taught to you in a way that works for your brain and personality. And if you don't know exactly wh

Carla is amazing. My daughter loves working with her and she made things easy to understand. I can’t recommend her enough.
Ted
Carla's teaching technique was perfect for me. I have played the guitar for longer than I care to admit and even I was tired of hearing my same old stuff. She incrementally moved me forward line by line, measure by measure to where I now have several fingerpicking style numbers in my portfolio.

Playing for my own enjoyment is now enjoyable once again.

My lessons were online and very effective - when I got stuck, Carla would send me a sample audio clip of her playing the difficult part which was a godsend for me in how I learn new musical things.

I highly recommend Carla and her Carlalology method of guitar teaching. You won't be disappointed.

Great teacher and she teaches many different styles of playing.

- Reading Standard Nomenclature including tabs and sheet music
- Modern Guitar technique, like tapping, sweeping and legato
- Learning to Play WHILE you Sing
- Improvisation
- Technology and its utilization

Perks working with me:

Very patient and understanding person. At my age of 62 and trying to learn the bass along with the challenges of issues brought by life, these sessions have become therapeutic in nature....

After working with Andrew for 3 months my guitar playing has gone from self-taught and being ok to now being able to have a lot more understanding, integration and fluidity with the guitar. I think the best thing of working with Andrew is giving him feedback of where I want to go as a guitarist and he builds layers and steps of how to get at a very do-able level of challenge. I look forward to our lessons every time and look forward to continuing to work with Andrew.

Have 2 Daughters Taking bass guitar lessons from Andrew – they love the lessons and he seems extremely knowledgeable. And what I consider most important – – they are having fun!
Jeff
My background: I'm a 44 year old reformed drummer that started learning bass about a year before taking lessons with Andrew. About Andrew: he brings a relaxed and comfortable vibe, but it rests atop a strong and conversant knowledge of theory (and of course, playing ability) that he graciously sprinkles about in a quantity calibrated to your level and interest. He's always prepared with an effective and practical trajectory for the lesson and lessons pathway, but fully embraces whatever you're bringing that day (questions you have, songs you're listening to or want to understand better) and manages to synergize what you bring with trajectory you're on. I've learned a tremendous amount. And, he's a good dude. All-in, a unique combination of personal skills and technical tools. I do recommend.

"I've taken lessons before and have always become disappointed because there was never any structure to the lessons and theory was treated as secondary. I wanted to really delve into theory because that is the knowledge needed to have no limits. Finally, I found Jimmy. He is a true teacher. Jimmy makes sure he teaches you the theory behind what you are doing. I have been playing for over ten years and was not progressing. After just a few lessons with him, I am starting to truly see the fretboard. I am finally excited again!"
