Hello! My name is Andrew Dyl and I am a hard rock, blues, and heavy metal guitarist with 17 years of playing experience and now offering guitar lessons in Canton Mi! Music is my passion and teaching is one of my greatest joys.My teaching philosophy is quite simple, music is a universal language and we each have a unique way of expressing our own stories through it. Therefore, no two lessons are alike. I wholeheartedly believe that every student is unique, and thus, build my lessons around each students individual strengths and interests to foster growth and excitement. This allows each student to develop a foundational knowledge of musical theory while learning songs that inspire them to further pursue their own musical interests. There is no better feeling than watching a student master a specific technique or learning a song that resonates with them. Experiencing their excitement and joy is the greatest part of teaching.I have taught both electric and acoustic guitar independently for many years. Moreover, I was a guitar instructor in Shenzhen, China in 2019 at Haiyun Primary School. There my students were sixth grade primary students and we focused on chord construction, rhythmic phrasing, and minor pentatonic lead ideas. My students have ranged from the ages of 10 to 50. I have an extensive knowledge of The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Van Halen, and Nirvana. I frequently use these bands in lessons. Moreover, I have studied theoretical composition and musical theory for many years. My main areas of interest are lead guitar playing and modal manipulations, especially the Aeolian (natural and harmonic) minor scale.In conclusion, I have a love of music and believe that teaching guitar to new students from all walks of life is truly gift. I am also a huge fan of nature walks, coffee, and am currently in the process of getting a tuxedo cat that will be named Jack after The Nightmare Before Christmas!
