Fun and engaging! Andy tried to find the musical interests of each student to keep them practicing and wanting to learn more. Andy uses method books, but also sheet music of the student's favorite songs to balance technique with enjoyment. Andy is well versed in all styles of music in addition to theory, ear training and improvisation, giving his students a well rounded experience with music.

Instruments:

I'm a passionate, patient, and driven instructor who loves working with students of all ages and sharing my love of all styles of music. In 2007, I graduated from Illinois State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music. Performing all over the world has been one of the greater experiences of my life as a musician, and I've had the opportunity to play in Ireland, Canada, and nationally throughout the United States. As alternative styles are a huge passion of mine, I have gone on to win several fiddle awards such as the Illinois State Fair Fiddle Contest. Currently, I am performing and touring with Irish rock band, Blaggards.

Instruments:

I was born in Marshall, Texas. I received my Bachelor of Music and my Master of Fine Arts in Music Education from Stephen F. Austin State University. I've spent seven years in public schools in the surrounding Houston area before coming on to teach with KIPP Houston Public Schools in 2012. My primary instrument is violin/viola under the training of Dr. Isidor Saslav, but spend my weekends on bass for community events and local performances. As a young musician, I received an opportunity to perform with my former orchestra teacher Ken Lattimore, who is now a member of country and western group Sons of the Pioneers. In my musical career, Mr. Jackson has performed with the Marshall Symphony, Orchestra of the Pines, the SFA Chamber Orchestra and the Mu Xi Chapter Men’s Chorus of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia. At KIPP Houston Public Schools, my students have been featured performers at the Muscular Dystrophy Association Annual Muscle Walk, Downtown Houston’s House of Blues, the 2014 KIPP Gala, and with Mark Wood (co-founder of world famous Trans-Siberian Orchestra) in a combined Electrify Your Strings concert including KIPP Sharp Orchestra, KIPP Sharpstown Orchestra and Choir, and YES Prep Orchestra.

Instruments:

For beginning students who are children, I typically start with learning how to read music, and how to play the scales. Once the student has progressed to have a grasp of the fundamentals, I will begin to introduce solo repertoire appropriate for their first recital performance. For adults, I try to find out what the student is interested in, and guide my instruction according to keep the lessons engaging and fun, no matter their ability level. I hope all my students could enjoy their experience of learning how to play the violin.

Because the electric guitar doesn’t require the large resonating shape of an acoustic guitar, they are generally much lighter and easier to transport. The simple design of an electric guitar, and the way that the strings are amplified, means that the strings have less tension and are closer to the fretboard. This distance from the frets is typically referred to as the action, and the low action is how electric guitarists are able to play such intricate, fast phrases and runs.   Acoustic ... Read More

You review the skills you have learned so that you can build upon them when you reach a new element. For example, let’s think about the straight bow on the strings.

Oxford Music states that by the year 1890 the F trumpet was all but extinct, except for the Royal College of Music in London, which stubbornly continued teaching it for several years past the turn of the century. For all practical purposes, though, the B flat and C trumpets arrived on the scene around the same time and with the same goal—to usurp the F and G trumpets with superior accuracy and agility.
