Professional Pianist and Student at the Guildhall School offering lessons in London and Surrey

Methodology

I seek not to teach my students how to play the piano, but rather how to learn to play the piano, through innovative and engaging learning methods that I would be excited to share from my own professional practice as an active pianist in the music industry, and those that I have learnt from several of today's eminent pianists and professionals.

I am confident that I can develop the strong student-teacher relationships that are essential to learning success, and that I am able to articulate effectively across ages and abilities, catering to each student's individual needs. I have found that my students learn most effectively through visual imagery, which I employ to explore both practical and theoretical concepts in original and interesting new ways; I aim to lay a strong theoretical foundation, which I believe leads to greater examination success, a smoother transition into ABRSM Grade 5 Theory, a consolidation of classroom knowledge, and a wider appreciation of music as a whole.

Experience

andrewgarrido.com

Andrew Garrido, 21, from South London, started his musical journey ten years ago, funding the purchase of his piano and lessons early on; he has now developed rapidly into one of the most sensitive and imaginative pianists his age. He featured first in The Guardian, and has since appeared on BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 5 Live, BBC News, and BBC World News.

Andrew began learning the piano at the age of eleven, in 2010; lacking funds to afford lessons or an instrument, he drew a keyboard onto paper and learnt from YouTube for six months before his first piano lesson. He began study with Danielle Salamon upon his entrance to the prestigious Purcell School only five years later in September 2015, where he was awarded the Senior Piano Prize and Senior Academic Music Prize in 2017; Andrew obtained a Licentiate of Trinity College London (LTCL) that August.

Andrew made his concerto debut in 2018 with the Echo Ensemble at St Giles’ Church, Cripplegate, a performance which “epitomised both perfect classical style and brilliantly energetic invention; such a balance is a rare, magic quality found in only the finest musicians”, as described by the ensemble’s Conductor and Artistic Director, Noah Max.

He has also performed both nationally and internationally at venues such as the Fazioli Concert Hall in Italy, the Ledger Recital Room at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Duke’s Hall at the Royal Academy of Music, Milton Court in Barbican, St John’s Smith Square, St James' Church in Paddington, and Shoreditch Treehouse, as well as recorded at Abbey Road Studios.

Andrew has benefitted from work with Dmitri Alexeev, Iain Burnside, Marc Corbett-Weaver, Justas Dvarionas, William Fong, Natasa Lipovsek, Robert Markham, Noriko Ogawa, Fali Pavri, Jonathan Plowright, Paul Roberts and Aaron Shorr. Andrew also works regularly with composers across various styles, giving frequent world premieres in both a solo and ensemble capacity, including a range of cross-arts and multimedia projects.

His interests also include improvisation, following courses with David Gordon and John Sweeney, and composition across a wide range of forms, from studies in fugue to songwriting.

Andrew enrolled at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in September 2017, studying with Charles Owen.
