Andrew is a friendly, creative and thorough musician who still performs frequently and who loves making learning fun for his students. A graduate of the renown Berklee School of Music in Boston, his career blossomed under the tutelage of world class musicians and composers like Rick Peckham, Joey Haddad and grammy award-winning singer and saxophonist Walter Beasley. Although guitar is his primary instrument, he joined the Music Place faculty in 2016 with strong fluency in piano, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, clarinet, percussion (trap set and ethnic drums) and composition.

Andrew's experience with special needs has equipped him with wonderful patience and a kind way about him that helps students feel proud of what they can accomplish while they grow in their love for music. He brings passion, creativity and eagerness to any endeavor. As a lead vocalist, guitarist, composer and producer of music for film and television, he also enjoys the art and technology of sound production and is passionate about nutrition.
