Andrew Borst has been teaching, performing, and writing books since the 80's. Andrew has not only written lot's of books, he's developed unique clinics, workshops, graduated group lesson materials, and summer band camp programs where students that have never played in a band before get together, and at the end of the week, perform a live show with a band, often times featuring original music.
Andrew began performing and recording with various bands in Madison Wisconsin in 1983 and began teaching in 1987. Andrew noticed right away when he started teaching there was a need for properly graduated teaching materials and books that were engaging, provided the student with plenty to work on, and empowered the student with an understanding of how things work so the student could develop into a self sufficient professional musician and create original music. It didn't take long for Andrew to start to developing his own unique methods. Andrew always welcomes the challenge of finding new ways to teach that result in a better learning experience, and a more accomplished student.
In 2000 Andrew stopped performing and recording professionally, he now lives in the Kansas Flint Hills with his Wife and children where he enjoys teaching, writing books and the occasional performance.
Andrews books present materials in such a way that it’s easy to learn, the years of teaching experience insure a properly graduated fun learning experience. More than 30 years of tweaking and fine tuning with actual students in real learning situations goes into each method.
