Andy works internationally as both a performer and teacher. His vibrant style, combined with an enthusiasm for championing contemporary compositions, consistently challenges out-dated perceptions of the tuba repertoire.
During his studies at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Andy achieved various accolades. He won both the Linda Mowat Brass Prize and the RWCMD Concerto Competition, and has since gone on to perform as a guest soloist with bands and orchestras throughout the UK and Europe.
Andy enjoys a busy freelance career as an orchestral musician, working with orchestras such as the Novello Orchestra, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Welsh National Opera and Birmingham Royal Ballet.
As an educator, Andy enjoys enthusing the next generation of musicians. He works as Tuba lecturer in Cardiff University and the Junior Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, as well as working as a visiting tutor in schools and county ensembles throughout the UK.
