 About            

The First Note

Andrew has had a love of music from a young age and was always performing whenever possible. His musical instruction began when he joined the National Youth Choir of Scotland at the age of 8. Here he learned to read and understand music and trained his ear using techniques that he has incorporated into his own teaching style.  In high school he thoroughly enjoyed learning keyboard, drums and guitar and chose to begin learning the guitar and formed his own band where he was lead singer and guitarist. At this point his father, an accomplished singer, suggested he undertake piano lessons which he began at 16.

 

By the end of high school, he had achieved his ABRSM grade 6.  What began as a hobby grew into a fully-fledged passion: although initially en route to study medicine, he changed course in order to pursue the piano full time and has never looked back since. Immediately after school he began studying a two year course at the Music Box at Edinburgh College, where he attained his Grade 7 and 8 within his first year.  He also began learning the violin and achieved his grade 8 within just a year and a half. At this point he felt reassured that a career in music was where his future lay.

Andrew then attended the University of Aberdeen as they offered a joint  degree in Music and Education and it was his aim to become a high school music teacher, like the ones who had inspired him. Here, he improved as a pianist, furthered his understanding of musical theory and history and learned various teaching skills which he implemented on multiple high school teaching placements.  He also enjoyed performing as part of the University Symphony Orchestra, University Chorus and singing as part of the Glee Club. During his time at University, Andrew realised individual tuition was what inspired him rather than teaching curriculum music in High School. So after graduating in 2015, Andrew went about setting up his own business whilst working part time at a health club. 


He has now founded the Andrew Walker School of Music and personally teaches over 50 students a week in two different convenient locations in Edinburgh: Barnton Park and Clermiston.

The school has now expanded with 4 other teachers teaching from the Clermiston music studios.  Eleni, Laura, Edyta and Megan collectively teach piano, guitar, violin and theory.  

During his time at College and University and since graduating, Andrew has performed at dozens of weddings and various events, either as a solo pianist or accompanying singers. He often performs original arrangements at the request of the employer.

 

Andrew has experience working at children's activity camps and was very excited to fuse this experience with his love of music and form his own  children's summer camp which focuses on singing and performance.
