Andrew is able to keep up the pace of teaching with the rapidly changing attention span of a young kid, making a fun, spontaneous game out of learning. – KS
My 8 year old daughter has been taking guitar lessons from Andrew for over a year and a half. She loves the lessons (says they’re the fastest 30 minutes of her week!) and is steadily growing in musical ability and appreciation. Andrew has a special gift for finding the best ways for your child to learn and stay motivated. I highly recommend him for any budding musician.
My daughter and I both love Andrew. He is a profoundly talented musician and shows a real understanding of the challenges that young musicians face. What impresses and pleases me most, though, is how patient and calm he is with my daughter.
My 6 year old son has been taking voice and piano with Andrew, and it has been a wonderful learning experience. Andrew is calm and relaxed. My child comes home from lessons eager to practice, and excited to tell me what he has learned. I can recommend Andrew with confidence to anyone looking to start their child on the journey of musical knowledge, and all the lifelong joy that can bring.
Andrew makes learning FUN for a fidgety 5 year old boy. he can quickly change course during a lesson to keep attention span, and offers plenty of positive feedback.
You have such a great way of combining music that is fun for her with work that is technically challenging. As a teacher, I really appreciate how much thought you put into how to reach the kids–you have a lot of tricks up your sleeve, and it’s really fun to watch it in action.
Andrew Ingkavet, composer and parkslope dad, has a wonderful way with children. He is teaching my son piano and my son comes home enthusiastic. I studied guitar with him a while back and it was wonderful. When working with kids, Andrew knows the importance of a sticker 😉 He also teaches voice and guitar. Do you recommend? Highly recommend.
Andrew is not only teaching my daughter how to play piano, he is encouraging her to think of herself as a musician and to think of music as a integral part of her life. It is an overall wonderful experience!
Andrew managed to make my 5 year old son who is a complete newbie at music play real songs with chords using both hands in less than 3 months! It blows my mind. – AP
Possibly the best piano teacher ever
Andrew really works with the student according to her ability and interest. Meanwhile he still pushes the student. Recitals are awesome.
