I possess a keen passion for teaching, and I am delighted to offer lessons in several musical disciplines to people of all ages and ability levels. I believe that the most productive learning environment is one that is encouraging and inspiring. In my teaching, I therefore endeavour to be as positive and as constructive as possible. I am methodical in my overall approach to pedagogy and the way I explain and demonstrate. My hope is that my pupils will not only be able to improve their technique, but also understand why a particular technique works or does not work. Furthermore, I recognise that every pupil has differing needs and aspirations. I always try to cater to those individual needs.
I lead a multifarious career in music. I am equally at home as a countertenor, both in choral and solo settings; as a conductor; and as an accompanist, be it at the piano, organ, or harpsichord.
As a singer, I have performed alongside world-class musicians on both sides of the Atlantic, in ensembles such as Gallicantus, TENET, Sansara, The Bach Choir of Holy Trinity NYC, and others. In addition, I sing in many of the cathedral and church choirs in London. I also have abundant experience with musical theatre repertoire.
As a conductor, I have been the Music Director at two parish churches in the USA, and I served as Assistant Conductor of the Westminster Choir. I am currently the Assistant Conductor of the Cranbrook Choral Society.
As a keyboardist, I garnered a wealth of experience as an accompanist to singing lessons for students at Baldwin Wallace Conservatory of Music and at Westminster Choir College. I also work regularly as an organist and harpsichordist.
I have worked with Andrew since September 2018 and have found him to be wholly professional in his work that he does with us. He is a great singer and thereby can set a good example by demonstration. He is reliable and dedicated and I have no hesitation in recommending him as a singing tutor.
I have seen Andrew in various contexts, notably as a extremely accomplished musical performer and an excellent vocal coach. He is highly organised and diligent, and purposefully focussed on the goal. But he is also very personable, and perceptive and sensitive towards others, with a persuasive and engaging manner that suits him well to teaching situations.
