Andrew Tovey began learning at the age of six and had gained his grade 8 with distinction by the age of 11, all self taught. At 13, he was accepted to Chetham’s School of Music, Manchester
where under the tuition of teachers such as John Dickenson he reached the televised stages of BBC’s Young Musician of the Year: 1986 & 1988. He then went on to the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London. Teachers included Rod Franks, John Miller and Paul Cosh. He has since gone
on to work with orchestras such as the LSO and the RPO and teach privately as well as for organisations such as Kent Music Service.
It is Andrew’s intention to always maximise the very best the pupil can achieve whilst also keeping music fun. He is flexible with his approach to tuition, believing that each person is unique and thus should be taught as an individual. For grades, Andrew as a skilled pianist too will always accompany his pupils so that they will have the advantage of knowing someone during the grade and have someone who knows just how they will perform.
