What People Are Saying About the Academy!

Mark Tremonti, Alterbridge & Creed

“Not only is Andy a tremendous player, he is also a top notch teacher! I want my membership:)”

Andy is one of the most exciting guitar players to come around in a while. His ear, technique, and tone are impeccable! He explains things when discussing his technique that may not be as easy to execute, but because of his down to earth approach, makes his concepts easier to grasp. Not only that, as an music industry professional, he is a dream to work with. I wish more of my customers were this easy to communicate with.

Padge, Bullet for My Valentine Andy is a brutal shredder and the Academy will definitely help you learn to burn!

Andy has been a true blessing to work with at ESP Guitars.  Since he became a part of the family, I have wanted to use him for every trade show and clinic that I possibly could because of how impactful his playing is.  Fast, but fluid, stylistic, but consistent…all while making it look so damn easy.  He is very personable and can take the time to explain to anybody what he is doing and how he is doing it and for all the aforementioned reasons, he turns anybody in his path into a fan.
