MUSIC LESSONS

“As a home schooling mother of 24 years, I am very picky as to who I allow my children to learn from, and Andy was more than a wonderful teacher.  Both of my children learned so much and continue to do so, due to Andy and his caring mentorship of my sons.” – Paula, mom to two young musicians

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR

You’ll learn from Spokane Library’s Music Education Specialist, Andy Rumsey. Music was always something that interested him, but after witnessing firsthand the energy of a live rock-and-roll concert he was hooked. It was a short jump from listening to songs to learning to play to writing songs. Since then, Andy earned a degree in audio engineering, developed a background in music theory and built up 15 years of live performance and studio experience.
