About Me


Hi. My name is Andy Richard. I am a multi-instrumentalist and music teacher. Thanks for looking at my profile on musicteacher.com

I specialize in piano, electric and acoustic guitar, ear training, and theory lessons. I am offering your first lesson and consultation for free. My lessons are for beginner and intermediate students of all countries, ages 5 and older, who are reliable and love music. I also teach and have experience teaching students who require special education.

I customize private lessons for each student. I teach people music they want to learn and music that will help them to become excellent musicians! Many of my students have told me that they learn a lot from me while having fun! I’m available to teach many days and hours weekly, online, on Zoom. Please keep reading to learn more about me and how I can help you.
