I truly believe that all learning, while serious in nature, should be fun and exciting in methodology. Living in the age of technology, there are so many ways to make learning fun and interesting for students. Whether it be sharing information from Youtube, educational sites such as The Teaching Channel, using digital music apps such as "Smart Music" for assessment, showing a student how to record themselves on their smartphones, all of these things can be brought in to the instructional experience. The most important part of teaching is knowing your students, what they want to learn, and divising curriculums to fit their needs.

Hello whoever you are, I am Andreas. I come from Sweden and live in San Fernando Valley, CA (Los Angeles). I started playing the drums at the age of 5 and played in bars when I was in my young teens. At the age of 16, I won first place the annual Swedish Championships in Drums. Quite an interesting concept, no? Next year, I won it all again. All through my mid-teens, I attended a very unique Swedish music conservatory, maybe one of the very finest in our country, called "Music Factory". This school has now grown to be the birthplace of many great young Swedish musicians, included myself. Already working on pro-gigs in Sweden, I made a different choice than most of my friends. Instead I decided to move, by myself, from Sweden to Los Angeles and become a professional drummer.  When I moved to LA, I was in dire need to get a gig. Let me tell you. It wasn't easy, but I did end up landing a gig with Lady Gaga, one summer in 2009. Since, I have played for multiple different artists, on multiple major record labels. I have also worked with some of the world's leading producers, the men behind songs you hear every day on the radio, as a studio drummer and/or bass player. Artists ranging from Aly & AJ on Disney Channel to spaced-out mixed symphonic electronica with Paul Oakenfold, the English DJ legend.  Though my time so far in LA, I have had the chance to aquaint myself with many other backing band musicians, for other artists or shows, from lead-guitarist Rafael Moreira (NBC The Voice, Pink, Christina Aguilera) and the guys gigging with Chris Cornell, to the younger rhythm section for Macy Gray.

In 1984 I was a music instructor for the Canadian Forces School of Music in Esquimalt British Columbia. Over the last three decades I have taught one-on-one lessons and ensembles at all levels including Elementary, Middle, and High School levels. More recently I founded MusiCali Kids with my wife, servicing families with the award winning program Music Together. I recently taught for the Crestwood Music Education center in N.Y. where I had over 30 students, as well as served as Conductor of the string orchestras and percussion ensemble. I was also the conductor-educator for a year for the Coastside Community Orchestra in Half Moon Bay, CA. As Choir Master for the Chancel Choir in Half Moon Bay, I conducted major choir works while also making praise song arrangements customized specifically for my students. I currently teach for the Boyle Heights community youth orchestra as well as Musical Theater for the Inland Pacific Summer intensive in Montclair California.

I am a passionate instructor that has love and experience for music performance.  In 2007, I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a Music Performance degree.  Shortly there after, I moved to Los Angeles and attended the LA music academy on a scholarship.  Perfroming all over the country and the world has been one of the greatest experiences of my life.  Opening up for Jason Mraz in front of twelve thousand people at the Olympic stadium in South Korea was incredible!  If you love something enough and are willing to fight for it, anything is possible...

I like too see where the study is playing-wise and design a custom learning plan for the student and his/her goals and help them reach their goals quicker with a planned practice schedule. I also start students off with reading which helps them better understand rhythm and being able to read music is a huge plus in todays music world. It also allows the student to get more done from practice sessions in my experience.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
