Private Lessons

Oftentimes the process of learning comes with a lot of expectations, some of which might prevent us from growing and, more importantly, enjoying.

As a private instructor, Andrea’s main vocation is to support the students on their path to knowledge, whatever that might be. In this process, developing a skillset is as important as nurturing a constructive approach to learning, where the students feel reassured and motivated to pursue their own aspirations. This is true for any age or level.

Andrea is fluent in rock, funk/r’n’b, jazz, pop, blues and americana, and has developed well-tested curricula on many topics of interest including guitar style analysis, instrument proficiency, applied harmony and improvisation, reading, music theory, harmonic analysis, session guitar work and recording.

Andrea provides personalized lesson plans that are tailored to the learner’s needs, choosing from a wealth of teaching materials, and fine-tuning them to each student’s very own preferences and taste.

Lessons can be booked in-person or online. All ages and levels welcomed.
