Willing to teach
Beginner to advanced
Musical artist and educator Andy Wasserman has been giving private music lessons online since 2010 with highly interactive, customized and personalized programs of study via video chat in real-time for students around the world (all ages and all levels).
He is one of only a handful of professional musicians personally and directly certified by George Russell to teach Lydian Chromatic Concept of Tonal Organization lessons since 1982. The LCCOTO is of profound and useful benefit for all instrumentalists in all styles for improvisation, composition, arranging and analysis. This is the renowned theory that changed the direction of Jazz into the Modal Period (Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Bill Evans, etc.), created by George Russell, the author of this innovative pan-stylistic music theory - the art and science of tonal gravity.
