Andrew W

Instruments:

My approach to teaching lessons is unique. Having had many different instructors over the last 25 years, I've been able to learn about what works and what doesn't. For every student I am eager to learn why they want to play the violin...not just insert my personal agenda! I can then  tailor the lesson to meet their individual desires and goals. I strongly believe in a classical foundation, as it carries over into just about everything the violin can do. I incorporate theory, and improvisation as well to help each student inderstand how to learn on their own, not just at the lesson! From there, the choice is yours for there are many stylisitc options available on the violin.

Instruments:

I am a very passionate and devoted musician. I believe that music is extremely important in  life. When I was young I struggled with severe depression, and at that point music saved my life. Playing the guitar gave me the tools i needed to express my emotions in a healthy manner, and I wish to share these tools with everyone that I can.
