Picture of Andrew


Andrew is a friendly, creative and thorough teacher/musician who still performs frequently and who loves making learning fun for his students. A graduate of the renown Berklee School of Music in Boston, his career blossomed under the tutelage of world class musicians and composers like Rick Peckham, Joey Haddad and grammy award-winning singer and saxophonist Walter Beasley. Although guitar is his primary instrument, he joined the Music Place faculty in 2016 with strong fluency in piano, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, clarinet, percussion (trap set and ethnic drums) and composition.

Andrew's experience with special needs has equipped him with wonderful patience and a kind way about him that helps students fee proud of what they can accomplish while they grow in their love for music. He brings passion, creativity and eagerness to any endeavor. As a lead vocalist, guitarist, composer and producer of music for film and television, he also enjoys the art and technology of sound production and is passionate about nutrition.

He's fantastic. Very patient, teaches extremely well and my son has a great time every lesson. His successful techniques to teach guitar to a distracted, 49 yr old woman who has never before had any musical experience, speaks volumes.

Actual Customer Testimonials:

"Our daughter, Melissa, loves her music class, and she looks forward to the recitals. She's made friends and become more confident. We'd recommend the Music Place to anyone. -- Melissa's parents, Kathy & Matt, Los Gatos" .

I tell everyone who will listen about the amazing introduction to music that our daughter is getting with the Music Place. People are always amazed when a 3-year old explains that she played an oboe last week and is going to play a piccolo next week! Most importantly, our daughter can't wait for music class & asks to go every day. -- The Pace Family
