I believe teaching needs to be tailor-fit to the individual. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to private instruction. Our lessons will begin by me getting to know who you are as a student and as a musician. We will determine what you want out of music and your instrument, then we will set goals to get there. All of this will be a collaboration between me and you. I believe that music must be a self-driven endeavor. It is a vehicle for self-discovery.

That being said, I do believe in having a solid technical foundation, and I will push you to develop a daily practice routine. I try to begin every lesson with a rudimental warmup, regardless of age or experience. I also try to include free-play time, playing together, or playing along to music with every session to have fun and develop creativity. I believe fun, creativity, and human-connection is what music is all about, and technique is the work you put in to make those things happen. We will always end on a positive note ...

Graduating from the snare drum to the drum set in high school, he learned to love the excitement of the stage with his rock band, Ghost Animals, and dove deep into the world of jazz while playing in his high sch

I understand that each person learns differently and has different musical goals. Because of this, I do not teach everyone the same. I do not teach out of any specific book or teaching program. Instead I design lessons around the student and their own personal style and goals. I feel that this creates a more motivating and driven curriculum and makes lessons more enjoyable for myself and my students.

About Andrew

I have been teaching professionally in the area for the past 6 years, and have been playing and studying the guitar since I was 11 years old. Music is my life, and teaching people to play this music on guitar is my passion. M

Hannah
Andrew is an excellent instructor. He is really knowledgeable in music theory. I took lessons for only a short time but was able to learn so much, because he used my knowledge of piano to help me understand guitar concepts and he focused on the techniques and songs that I was most interested in.

I have been teaching mainly Guitar and Bass Guitar for about 8 years. My lessons are tailored to not only include the foundations needed to become a solid player, but also include the styles and songs you actually want to learn! Every student is different. So, I like to adapt my lessons as much as possible to not only the way each student learns, but also the goals and interests they have. I want to get you to the point that you can play the songs you love as soon as possible and have fun doing it! Whether you are 8 years old, 18 years old or 48 years old, I'd love to teach you!

The bass is so under rated. Musicians may crack jokes about us, but you know what we bassists have? Gigs. Bassists get gigs.

People talk like the bass is so boring because we play repetitive bass lines, but guess what? Outside the solos, all the other instruments play repetitive things too. So don't let that push you away. Bassists may think they don't get the spotlight often because of a lack of solos, but, most bassists don't play like they are in the spotlight. Go watch Steve Harris, Flea, or Joe Dart command the stage, even with their repetitive basslines.

The bass and drums are two of the best instruments to learn if your goal is to play with a group. Drums and bass are almost exclusively support musicians, rely extremely heavily on rhythm and are the ones really driving a band.

With most modern music (pop, rock, blues, metal, folk, rap, etc.) there are only a handful of basic patterns and chord progressions that get used. Like no matter what kind of building is ...

About Matt

Aside from being proficient at a craft, a good teacher needs the skill of communication. Being the best physicist in the world doesn't make you the best physics teacher. Knowing how to do something and knowing how to make other people understand it are two very different skills. Lets be honest,

I want to make sure my students have a good time learning drums but I also want to make sure they learn a lot..! I always make sure to ask my students what they want to learn and what their favorite music is... after that, I figure out what type of lessons to plan out.

5 Reasons My Guitar Might Be My Best Friend

Music can be a very rewarding experience - and a personal one, at that. Most musicians spend a LOT of time with their instrument, often baring their souls in the form of melodies and lyrics. If you treat your guitar like part of the family - or your best friend - you'll relate to what Gresham, OR guitar teacher Ed P. has to say here...   Did you know that some of the old blues players named their guitars?  Some of them were even rumored to sleep with their guitars.  I’m not saying tha …
