At the age of nine, music started to become a major staple in my life. I took a strong interest in guitar, being shaped by many well-known musical influences. Also expanding my string family, adding violin/fiddle and ukulele at an early age, as well as studying classical piano. I love writing and recording my own music, working with various genres such as Folk, rock, pop, indie, country, alternative, and various Spanish and classical style guitar.

I enjoy adapting my music lessons to the style and genre of music my students love and enjoy learning. In turn, I want to help people find a love and joy for music, just as I have!

Young multilingual (English, Cantonese, and Mandarin) piano and violin teacher who combines the formal traditional Eastern style of teaching, and the fun approach of Western style of teaching into his music lessons.

Fun lessons but also challenging
- I believes that fun lessons are easy to gain young student interest, but it often lack to give them motivation. In the lessons, I often challenge my students, let them be self-motivated and become a better musician.

Techniques
- I focus lessons on teaching proper techniques with their instruments. With my experiences in taking lessons from American, Chinese, and Russian teachers, I learnt a great spectrum of techniques and I would like to teach my students what I had learn.

Learning pieces and other related topics
- Playing pieces and songs is only a small part of learning to play an instrument. In our lessons, we would also cover proper music theory, and ear-training.

I have been teaching students from pre-k to retirement age. Early ...

I attended an Alexander Technique workshop Jameson co-hosted at the New England Conservatory and recently began personal lessons on AT and voice lessons with him. Jameson is passionate about teaching and is able to teach students at different levels of ability.

"What ill say first and foremost about Andrew is his insane passion for the craft. He has a fantastic ability to dig further into a character and most importantly know WHICH questions to ask that will help you make new discoveries along the way. An intelligent teacher and performer who not only has a deep understanding of textwork but also embraces and encourages spontaneity and instinct and genuinely gets excited at the prospect of a new path discovered for a character. All this and i havent even gotten into his insane ability to help his students master classical work and make it accessible, fresh, and completely unique. Working with him is just pure fun. Something that I believe can be forgotten in the work. Your passion will be reignited if its been dimmed and if not youll fall in love all over again with our craft working with Andrew. Highly recommend. Its ridiculously fun."

"I did not know what to expect when I signed up to take classes with Susan. I decided to take classes with her for two reasons: Her studio is not far from me and 2, the good reviews left by her clients. All I wanted was to learn the fundamentals and techniques about acting. Susan was excellent and very patient. She offered water in each lesson, which is also very kind. Her interpersonal connection brings a sense of comfort. Her studio is very neat and welcoming. I do not have regrets in my selections and I know you won't be disappointed too."
