Born into a musical background, Andrew developed a love of flamenco and classical guitar

from the age of eight. At the age of sixteen, he auditioned into the Royal Marines Band,

where he spent the next nine years performing in major concert halls worldwide, and at

numerous state occasions, shows, and garden parties as a drummer.  Upon leaving, he

returned to his first love, classical guitar.  Within one year of intensive study, he auditioned

and was accepted onto performer degree courses at Leeds College of Music and Huddersfield University.  

It was during this time that Andrew entered the Harrogate Competitive Music

Festival in the open Bach class.

 

Adjudicator Prof. Graham Wade, a well known leading world

authority on classical guitar, commended his playing and

awarded him 1st Prize with Distinction.  Around this time

Andrew was also performing with the legendary

Robin Nolan, leading British exponent of guitar

on the International Gypsy Jazz Swing scene.

 

Andrew continued master classes for a further two

years under the internationally renowned teacher and

recitalist Zoran Dukic in Amsterdam, Holland, where

he honed his recital skills, taught privately, and played

at weddings, corporate events and private parties.

 

Andrew then spent a further three years

living by Lake Constance at the foot

of the Austrian/Swiss alps,

teaching and performing

throughout Austria,Switzerland,

North Italy and the French Riviera.    

 

Throughout his extensive thirty year career as a musician,

the desire and ability to be able to communicate, through

music, to people of all ages and backgrounds, enables him

to continue to fulfil his potential.

 

One could not be disappointed with both his vast musical experience, his ability to create

the perfect ambience, and his easy-going, relaxed, but impeccably professional manner.
