Instructor Spotlight: Andrew Freedman

1. How long have you been teaching at Garden Street?

I have been teaching for just shy of one year!

2. What is your favorite thing about the students at Garden Street?

The students are super respectful and all have their own unique personalities which makes my job fun. Most importantly, they love music and I get to watch them explore and develop as musicians and humans.

3. What initially drew you to singing and playing piano?

My parents always had music on in the house, mostly classical music and some jazz. My father is an amateur pianist himself and I remember hearing him play through classic pieces after coming home from work. I started taking lessons at a young age and from there it was just constant exploration – I developed an insatiable appetite for music. I had to try as many instruments as possible and I grew up listening to many types of music.

4. Are you practicing any other instruments?

Yes. Singing, guitar, bass, drums in addition to piano.

5. How do you maintain a busy singer songwriter schedule with teaching?
