Teaching Style

"I believe first and foremost in supporting and developing what musically inspires a student’s decision to study and/or play music.  In order to fully develop control, musicality and understanding of the music language, it is important to focus on several aspects of music including music theory (scale and harmonic structure/function and rhythm) ear-training, reading and performance skills."

Expectations of Students

"Like any aspect of life, consistency and patience are two very important qualities to posses when working towards a goal. The duration of each practice session is proportional to the level of the student.  Learning how to practice efficiently with your instrument is key for adherence and success in obtaining your goals." 

Andy also strongly believes that service to humanity is of the utmost importance. He has performed for and been a part of many worthwhile causes such as the Dallas Life Foundation, Juvenile Diabetes, Food For Hunger Organizations, Medi Send, as well as Habitat for Humanity and fundraising for the Baha'i Faith.
