Andrea leads a musical life as a cello teacher, freelance orchestral and chamber musician and recording artist in the UK.
Born in Auckland, NZ, Andrea graduated from the University of Auckland in 2004 with a Bachelor of Music, where she received the university’s Arts and Cultural award for excellence in music performance in both 2003 and 2004. She then furthered her studies at the University of Waikato with James Tennant and graduated with an Honours degree in 2007. In 2008, she was awarded the Greta Ostova Violoncello Scholarship from the University of Auckland. In 2010, she completed a two–year Masters of Music course at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, where her tutors were Karine Georgian, Philip Higham and Raphael Wallfisch. Andrea has performed in cello masterclasses with Ralph Kirshbaum, Raphael Wallfisch, Steven Isserlis, Christoph Henkel and Louise Hopkins.
A dedicated teacher and keen music educator, Andrea has been teaching the cello since 1999. She taught privately at home in her studio and at a specialist music school while in Auckland. Since living in the UK she has continued to teach privately, coach and inspire young and mature musicians. She teachers all ages from beginners to advanced level.
Andrea has dedicated most of her musical life to orchestral playing. She was a member of the NZ National Youth Orchestra from 1999 – 2003, and was principle of the University of Auckland Symphony Orchestra in 2004. While still a student she also worked as a freelance musician with the Bach Musica Chamber Orchestra and the Waikato Symphony Orchestra in New Zealand. In 2007 she was accepted on the Lady Manchester Internship, working with the Auckland Philharmonic Orchestra, in which she performed in all of the main orchestra’s concerts throughout the year under well established international conductors. Since living and studying in the UK, she has worked with various orchestras throughout the UK, and has recently performed with the London Northern Lights Orchestra and the Orion Symphony Orchestra at the Aberystwyth MusicFest this Summer.
As a concerto soloist she has performed Haydn’s Cello Concerto in C major with the Waikato Symphony Orchestra, and premiered a solo work for electric cello accompanied by string orchestra, written by NZ composer David Adlam. She was a finalist in the University of Waikato’s Concerto Competition in 2005, playing Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations.
Andrea is also a passionate performer of chamber music. She was a finalist in the University of Auckland Chamber Music Competition in 2003 and 2006, and also reached the finals of the chamber music competition at the University of Waikato in 2005. In 2007 she was a founder member of the Lumineux Piano Trio in Auckland. During her first year in the UK (2009) she performed at the Charterhouse International Music Festival and toured as Principle cellist with the Dales String Orchestra in Yorkshire. Since then she has worked with chamber groups and is currently working on a project with the Orfeus Piano Trio and founding a cello quartet in London.
She plays a copy of the Montagnana 1739 “Sleeping Beauty” cello made by Noel Sweetman, made possible by the unbelievable support offered by her parents. In her spare time, Andrea likes to keep fit and loves nothing more than escaping to the beach and kayaking in the sea.
