Being a mature aged student of the guitar (I’m 50) and being a tax professional with precious time to spare for practice, I sought someone who could provide me with continuous inspiration, expert guidance, and most of all patience, in order to achieve my musical goals. For the last 5 years Andrew and IMA not only gave me all this but helped me to set realistic milestones along the way; all within a framework that develops a technical palette to enable creative composition. And there are great opportunities to have my 5 minutes of fame twice a year at the IMA concerts.
