Bio

Hi, my name is Andy Smith and I have been a guitar tutor and professional musician in Auckland for over 10 years now. I am dedicated to helping you the student achieve your goals on the guitar. Many of my students have achieved high marks in NCEA and have gone on to become professional musicians themselves.

I graduated from Massey University in 2008 with a Masters degree in Jazz where I studied under some of New Zealand’s leading guitarists including Neil Watson, Dixon Nacey and Martin Winch. Since then I have taught many students privately, in High Schools, Universities and also performed with some of New Zealand’s top musicians and performers.

Teaching Info

I provide guitar lessons for all levels of guitarists, beginner to advanced. Whether you want to learn your favourite songs, learn different styles of guitar, improve your technique, learn to read music or master improvisation skills, I can help you on the way to achieving your goals.

I have a large collection of resources and coupled with software such as Audacity and Logic, we can work on the areas of your playing which are stopping you from going to the next level.

I teach from my Home studio and provide professional, comfortable and enjoyable lessons for students. I have developed a large database of teaching resources and Music and can customise the lessons for the student based on their level and personal tastes.
