Reviews from previous students:

As an older adult beginner, I appreciated Andrew's infinite patience in teaching me, not only the bass from scratch, but aspects of theory that applied to the music I was playing.  He always suggested alternative approaches, if I couldn't manage to master a riff in the beginning.  And, jamming together with him was great fun! Barbara, Bass

I worked with Andrew for over a year and had no musical background. While I came to him for bass instructions, we evolved to doing both bass and drum instruction. I learned a lot from him as he was patient and adaptable throughout the process. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a musical instructor. Rohit, Bass


When approaching teaching Guitar or Bass Guitar,  Andrew likes to use real world examples, such as songs familiar to the student, to introduce concepts in a way that the student understands. Perhaps there is a song you’ve heard of that you want to learn? Send a list of of songs and we can pull from the list based on experience level. We will primarily work by ear, but occasional supplemental material might be required. 

For Music Production lessons, Andrew works to produce music from single ideas to fully arranged productions. For New music producers, Andrew recommends beginning recommends Bandlab, which is a free, cloud-based DAW that allows for collaborations and has all the tools needed to create music in an easy to use package. Andrew has experience working in multiple professional DAWS, including Ableton, Pro Tools, Studio One, and Reaper.
