A Warm Welcome

My name is Andrew Williams.

I am a performer, teacher and composer who specializes in brass instruments and jazz music.

As a teacher, I simplify the complex, connect the human spirit to the music, and focus on creating well-balanced musicians.

As a performer, my career has taken me across the NYC scene and abroad on tours. Currently, I play professionally in my home region.

As a composer, I am drawn to experimental music as well as classical and contemporary arrangements for brass instruments.

All that I do is based on certain values:

  • quality without arrogance
  • generosity of spirit
  • openness of mind
  • the legacy of jazz

I invite you to dive deep with me, while swimming with ease. Technique is only part of the package. A great musician is made up of much more than technical prowess.

I believe in guiding my students towards discovering their own authentic connection to music.

This is a process. It does not happen overnight.

It involves unleashing an inner sense of freedom to create, the guts to explore the unknown, and the curiosity to do so without self-judgement.

I’m here to help you get there!
