« Two years ago, Andy gave me my first lesson. I wasn´t a novice, but since that moment Andy gave me the abilities to improve my Rock- and Jazz guitar techniques in an extreme way. I also learned a lot of chords- and song building theory and I really wish I had taken my lessons with him a lot earlier. »

Berklee College of Music graduate with over 16 years of teaching experience is offering guitar lessons to guitarists of all levels.

Methodology

I'm an open-minded and optimistic person. Over the years I have developed a lot of my own teaching materials. I'm very flexible in the way I teach and I always try to find out what type of learners my students are so that I can design a personalized practice plan.

The best musicians are not always the best teachers and the cheapest teachers are rarely the best teachers. My goal is that you progress as fast as possible while having as much fun along the way.

Why is it that so many people want to learn guitar but give up?

What makes the best guitarists practice for hours and hours for years?

Why do so many guitarists who practice things over and over again do not make progress, while others seem to progress easily at incredible speeds?

I will answer those questions and many others in more detail in my lessons.

But to give you a short answer, in my opinion, it doesn't have anything to do with talent.

I believe that anyone can become a great guitarist. For that to happen you need to work on many areas, not just music theory and guitar techniques. You need to know what to practice, how long to practice something, and how to measure your progress. You also need to learn how to motivate yourself, stay motivated, and how to get through the times when you don't feel like practicing.

Musically, I consider myself primarily a Blues- and Rock guitarist. I can teach all styles to a certain degree, but I may not be the best fit if your goal is to learn Jazz or Classical guitar.

If you are interested in Blues, Classic Rock, Hard Rock, Metal and Neoclassical shredding, then book lessons with me!

I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Background

I have been teaching private lessons since 2002 and have loved helping my students to become good guitarists and musicians. I have taught well over 300 students in one-on-one lessons, and many of my students became touring and professional musicians themselves. I went to Berklee College of Music and earned a Bachelor of Music in 2002 (Magna Cum Laude). My majors were Performance and Contemporary Writing & Production.

Two years ago, Andy gave me my first lesson. I wasn´t a novice, but since that moment Andy gave me the abilities to improve my Rock- and Jazz guitar techniques in an extreme way. I also learned a lot of chords- and song building theory and I really wish I had taken my lessons with him a lot earlier.

Andy’s love of the guitar makes him a great teacher. He is very patient and will make sure you grasp the material/concept before moving on. As such, he’s great for beginners. His lessons are fun and engaging. I highly recommend him.
