Andy is an outstanding and engaging teacher. Lessons are tailored to meet individual needs. Andy prefers to teach students who have a reasonable level of proficiency on their instrument (intermediate to advanced level). Many Classical pianists learn from Andy to explore popular music and improvisation for the first time. Other instrumentalists are encouraged to build on their existing improvisational skills. Singers with some piano skills can learn to accompany themselves.
Jazz Piano students develop a sound theoretical foundation and a solid technique, as they dip into different styles through varied improvisational methods, based on standards and popular music repertoire.
Andy teaches the highly popular AMEB Piano For Leisure.
