Thinking about taking some lessons? Please read what some of my students over the years have said about my teaching...

"He’s a wonderful combination of a great bodhrán player, an experienced percussion teacher, and a very positive person. His lessons are clear, and his follow-up custom practice assignments have really helped me make good progress on my instrument. Our Skype lessons work great for me and easily fit into my schedule."

-Judy K. (San Francisco, CA, USA)

"My family enjoyed a bit of the "luck of the Irish" when we stumbled across Andy Kruspe as a percussion and bodhrán teacher!  Highly professional and extremely accomplished, Andy is an excellent teacher and an inspired musical director.  With Andy's help, my son has learned to play bodhrán, with his brother and sister on fiddle and guitar, to create a real family band.  It's been a joy to watch them develop, as there is nothing as fun and spirited as a good old jig well-played."  

-Bonnie G. (Huntsville, AL, USA)

“I attribute most of my accomplishments as a percussionist to Andy Kruspe and all that he has done for me. Andy has instructed and prepared me through numerous county, state, and professional level auditions. He has exposed me to as much percussion as possible - from rigid marching percussion to traditional Irish bodhrán. Andy’s tenacity as a teacher is why all of his students are successful.”

-Andrew W. (Harvest, AL, USA)

“I had the pleasure of attending some of Andy’s classes and found them to be a wonderful experience. I found Andy to be very professional in his approach yet very easy to follow.”

-Vincent K. (Newbridge, Kildare, Ireland)
