Great for ages 5 and up, Andy's enthusiastic and personable teaching style guides students through technique and theory using their own favorite music to pave the way. Students will learn a great deal of songs and develop an appreciation of songwriting and how the guitar has defined and evolved different genres of music from early 1900's blues to the most modern rock. From beginners who want to play a song at the first lesson to advanced students who want more out of their soloing and songwriting, Andy is a great fit.
