“Many experts are not good teachers. Andy is gifted at both.”

“I’ve been taking lessons with Andy for 3 years. Two things stand out. First, Andy is clearly an accomplished musician. He knows how to play the guitar and has a wealth of knowledge and experience to draw from. Second, he is able to communicate his knowledge in a way that others learn. Many experts are not good teachers. Andy is gifted at both…” Read More

“She loves going and practices all the time!”

“Andy has been working with my daughter for over a year now. She loves going and practices all the time on her own! I think this is because Andy does such a great job of letting the student pick songs of personal interest. Andy’s musical expertise and background attribute to the extensive music theory my daughter is learning. He is a true professional. We couldn’t have picked a better guitar instructor in Greensboro!”

Andy Lemaire Guitar Ukulele Instructor Greensboro NC

Hi, I’m Andy Lemaire.

I'm a guitar and ukulele teacher in Greensboro, North Carolina. I teach students aged 8 and up, ranging from complete beginners to advanced students. I have 14 years of teaching experience, and I've played for 26 years.

Core beliefs of my teaching philosophy:

  • The ultimate goal is to cultivate love for playing music. Learning and playing the guitar should be fun!
  • Learning happens best in a peaceful environment, free of anxiety and pressure.
  • Lessons should be customized to a student's interests and goals.
  • Concepts should build on each other in a progressive way.

Are you a beginner?

I have plenty of experience working with beginners of all ages. I don’t waste time doing boring exercises from method books. Starting in the first lesson, we begin working on learning real songs and the most practical techniques. We'll focus on working out the mechanics of playing. Most beginners are able to strum through a simple song by the end of their first lesson.

Been playing awhile?

For intermediate / advanced students, my first priority is to evaluate what needs to be done to take their playing to the next level. I determine which techniques need to be adjusted and developed, and which areas of theoretical understanding are missing. I then put together a program where we develop these areas of playing while examining their use in the student's preferred musical style.

With all students, things that I specialize in are:

  • Creating a thoughtful, planned, unique teaching approach for each student.
  • Developing flowing, tension-free technique
  • Analyzing problems the student is having, and creating strategies to fix those problems
