Andrea’s background in world-class music education is matched by two decades of experience in performance at the highest level. With her keen ear, outstanding analytical skill, and ability to inspire through her constructive and caring feedback, she is in increasingly high demand as an adjudicator both in the UK and internationally. As Head of Lower School at Chetham’s School of Music and a respected A Level examiner, Andrea is at the forefront of music education and pedagogy. With a stellar career as a percussionist for bands including YBS and Black Dyke, Andrea has won every major brass band competition, recorded numerous CDs, and toured the world as a performer. She is also an extremely successful composer with a wide range of published and recorded works including several pieces on graded examination syllabuses, and as a conductor she has worked with a number of youth and adult bands, most recently the Rainford and Wingates bands in the North West. Andrea has adjudicated at a wide range of regional, national, and international competitions including several regional area contests across the UK and the National Youth Championships. She is incredibly passionate about the future of brass banding and particularly enjoys working with youth bands; she has been involved with the National Youth Brass Band and the Greater Manchester Youth Brass Band for many years and is a strong advocate for improving diversity and equality.
