String orchestrations and music direction by Andrew Shield
Playing music is where I started and where my true passion is. I've studied with phenomenal guitarists Julian Lage, Joe Morris, and Brad Shepik and have been able to play with world class musicians. I also find myself playing mandolin, 5-string banjo, and tenor banjo frequently.
Almost all musicians compose or arrange whether they want to or not. In my case, I really want to and for just about any instrumentation or genre. If you need an arrangement of an original piece, a top 40 hit, or if you want to debut a new piece for your chamber ensemble, I'm happy to give a hand.
From playing and writing music, I've found myself in many situations where I get to conduct or lead musicians. Whether you need a music director for a musical theater production or your showcase, I can be ready to lead your musicians and to serve the music to its fullest.
