Why take lessons from Andy? Andy uses techniques from his unique experience.
"Andy is a delight. As a returning player after decades of absence, I was reffered to Andy and I could not be happier. Andy is a performer in several groups and co-founder of Rose City Trombones making him well-connected to the local trombone musical scene with a broad gauge on all genres from classical to jazz. Andy knows all the method approaches and balances encouragement with rigor. He likes to keep our lesson sessions both technique-focused as well as fun and enjoyable. Whether starting out, returning or refreshing, if you want to take your sound, technique and enjoyment to the next level, I highly recommend Andy." - Bob C.
"I highly recommend Andy. He is an excellent trombone instructor, and a new-found friend. I had taken a hiatus from music and had not played my trombone for 25 years. Then I was invited to play with a jazz ensemble at my 50th birthday. Needing some "boning" up, I sought out Andy for trombone instruction. After 2 months of lessons, my chops are feeling great, my sight reading was much improved, and I was practicing my horn more rigorously than my days in college because he helped rekindle my love of music. He also showed me why it’s important to listen to other performances. I learned from those musicians as I heard how they apply their craft." - Howard G.
