From an early age he loved the sound of the violin and dreamed of being able to play, but unfortunately he was unable to find an opportunity to study. When he was 15 Andrew was visiting relatives, and in their basement he found what had been his grandfather’s fiddle. It was given to Andrew and with the help of a local teacher he started practicing avidly, eventually earning a full music scholarship to the University of Louisiana at Monroe after only three years of playing.
At university he studied the classical repertoire, building his technique and learning string pedagogy with Dr. Christopher Thompson. At the same time he met musicians who played traditional American music and he began learning from and playing with them in Zydeco, Bluegrass and Old Time styles.
Currently Andrew performs with a number of artists in the Tokyo area most notably with the fusion band Balaganist, the klezmer sextet Dead Sea Dropouts and with various groups performing in traditional styles.

I began playing violin in junior high school at 13. I started playing professionally with bands when I was 15 and began learning guitar, mandolin and bass by the time I had graduated high school. I attended South Plains College in Levelland, Texas where I majored in commercial music. After graduating, I moved to Nashville, Tennessee and spent 13 years there working as a studio musician, touring with bands and producing music. During that time, I began learning other stringed instruments from around the world, such as erhu (二胡) shamisen and kokyu (胡弓). I love all kinds of musical styles, but am most proficient in country, bluegrass, western swing, blues, jazz, rock and folk.

Since I was little, I have loved music, singing, and dancing. When I was 10 years old, I was moved and inspired by a pianist I happened to see on TV and I started to take piano lessons soon after that. I also started taking violin lessons at the age of 12.
I graduated from the piano performance course at the Tokyo College of Music High School. I have a lot of experience in performing, having performed Piano Concerto No.21 by Mozart with the Lugansk Regional Philharmonic, and having been selected as a special student for the Beethoven Lecture Series by Michael Leuschner. I also won a special prize in the piano section of the 17th Japan Player's Competition.
I am currently studying psychology at university and am well-versed in Developmental Psychology and child motivation studies. I hope to bring both my professional musical experience and my perspective on psychology to my role as a teacher.
I will try to find the right approach for each student according to their characteristics and goals. However, my basic mission is, for those students who are new to music, to nurture a love of music first and foremost. For those who have some experience in music, I hope to help develop a deeper and more passionate enjoyment of music.

During my high school period, I joined the YMCA summer camp in Vancouver, Canada for 1 month. From that experience, I started to develop a longing to go overseas.

I decided to return to Canada again, after I graduated from University. I flew to Vancouver again to be an English teacher where I attained 2 diplomas -
TTCE (Training to Teach Children English), and TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) at King George International College.

After completing these studies, I moved to Toronto to volunteer at nursery school, which gave me experience to work for a school agency in Vancouver.

After leaving Canada, I have lived in New Zealand, Romania and England. I came back to Japan in 2010, where I've started teaching English for children aged up to 6.

I am also the mother of 2 elementary age kids. When they were little, I was thinking about how to teach them English. This thought inspired me how to be a good teacher for students as well.


I hope you can enjoy English Rhythmic with me at Smily Village!
