About Me

About Me

Hi! My name's Andy and I've been involved in music for over ten years now. I started playing clarinet in the fifth grade band at Lakewood Falls Elementary in Plainfield, and I haven't stopped playing music since. I learned tenor and bari sax for jazz band in middle school, and at the beginning of high school I taught myself to play the bass and acoustic guitar. I have performed once as a major soloist, performing C.M. Von Weber's Concertino for Clarinet with the Illinois Wesleyan Civic Orchestra at the Bloomington Center for Performing Arts as a winner of their Concerto-Aria competition. I am very knowledgable of woodwinds and woodwind accesories, so feel free to reach out to me with any questions about clarinets, saxophones, or any other woodwind. I'm your guy!
