About

2023 SUPERPROF USA GUITAR TEACHER OF THE YEAR

I have been teaching guitar for almost 15 years and received a recommendation letter from a five-time Grammy Award winner (C. McQueen). I have a degree in guitar from the Modern Music Institute with a score of 100/100. I played live with Steve Vai in 2016. After earning my degree, I studied guitar with some of the best players and teachers in the world, including Andy McKee and Tony McManus, as well as the five-time Grammy Award-winning guitar players from Snarky Puppy. I also took lessons from teachers at Berklee College of Music and Musicians Institute, and participated in masterclasses with Steve Vai, Robben Ford, Paul Gilbert, Guthrie Govan, Scott Henderson, M.A. Batio, Martin Miller, and Neil Zaza.

I participated in a project that won a Royal Television Award in the UK.

I have directed two music schools and have had students from all continents and various parts of the world. Some of my students have been accepted into Berklee College of Music. I have published three books in different languages, recorded material for national TV in different countries, and contributed to international CDs and video courses.

My goal is to get you started on your goals from your very first lesson. I've heard horror stories of teachers showing off for the entire lesson, or being live players who teach just for the money. That’s not me.

I've taught thousands of lessons to students from all over the world as the owner of my own teaching business.

In your first lesson(s), I will:
- Ask a lot of questions to get to know you.
- Conduct a baseline evaluation of your current skills so we can accurately discuss timelines and goals.
- Start working on your goals right away.
- Create a personalized path for us to follow in our classes together. Every student is different, and I tailor my lessons specifically to your needs.
- Design a practice program tailored to your needs, specifying what and how much to practice each week. I can update this program lesson by lesson to make your practice sessions more effective.

Here’s what others say about me:

Recommendation from Chris McQueen, 5-time Grammy Award winner and Snarky Puppy's guitarist:
"I’m writing to recommend Andrea Iacoviello as a guitar teacher. I’ve known Andrea for several years now as a student of mine. I’ve known him to be a thoughtful, kind person and an inquisitive musician. He’s always looking for ways to improve his teaching skills. He’s diligent and reliable, and I know he would be a great guitar teacher and a great person to work with."

My superpowers that you will benefit from as a student:

Extensive Performance Experience: I played live with Steve Vai in 2016 and have directed two music schools, working with students from all continents.

Advanced Guitar Studies: After earning my degree in guitar with a score of 100/100 from the Modern Music Institute, I studied with some of the best players and teachers in the world, including Andy McKee, Tony McManus, and Snarky Puppy's guitarists, and attended masterclasses with Steve Vai, Robben Ford, Paul Gilbert, Guthrie Govan, Scott Henderson, M.A. Batio, Martin Miller, and Neil Zaza.

Professional Teaching Preparation: I have chosen, studied, and practiced to become a teacher. I am not a musician who adapts to teaching solely for financial reasons.

Career Advice and Recording Expertise: I can provide guidance on a music career, instrument advice, and recording techniques.

Specialized Approach: Many of my students are beginners starting from scratch or intermediate guitarists who have never taken lessons and are self-taught. They often feel stuck and unsure how to progress to the next level, what to study, and they want to delve into aspects like improvisation, scales, theory, harmony, and keyboard knowledge. I have achieved excellent results with both groups.

Additional Resources: I provide and offer a wealth of written material authored by me, covering improvisation, finding scales and notes on the guitar, theory and harmony, rhythm, and musical styles, all provided free of charge.

My teaching is student-focused, aiming to help you achieve your personal musical goals using customized lesson plans and proven teaching methods. Whether you're a beginner or an advanced player, I can guide you through your musical journey, ensuring that you make progress and have fun along the way.
