Andy’s relaxed, common-sense approach to teaching is rooted in his background in developmental learning and his interest in creative problem-solving.
“…His manner is easygoing and conversational. He not only shares his music with students, but also the creative process through which songs are written and instruments are mastered.” —Joan Gardner, Cultural Organization of the Arts, RI
