Andrew has a First Class Honours degree and a Master of Music in musicology from The University of Melbourne, and a Bachelor of Music from the Australian Catholic University. He is a musicologist, concert pianist, teacher, accompanist, conductor, and composer. Andrew studied the piano since the age of 3, and he also plays the harpsichord, pipe organ and recorder. He worked as a research assistant and tutor in musicology at The University of Melbourne; his research focused on manuscript sources of German music from the time of J.S. Bach. He has received numerous awards for his research work and several academic prizes. Andrew is in the first year of his DPhil in musicology at Oxford University where he is researching the life and activities of Berlin court composer Johann Friedrich Agricola. He wants to undertake further studies in classical music history with the intention of pursuing research that also engages with other musical disciplines, while continuing to inspire the public with his own performances. Passionate about ensuring all Australians have access to a quality music education, Andrew intends to live his philosophy that classical music is not just for an elite few, or confined to the realm of the academic � but for everyone of all ages.
