Meet Your Teacher

Mr. Andrew and Ward W. at the Fall 2018 Recital

My name is Andrew McCormick (a.k.a. Mr. Andrew), and I am a pianist and teacher with almost two decades of experience working with students of all ages, levels, and musical backgrounds. I was a really shy kid, and music helped me to move out of my comfort zone and accomplish things that I would never have done otherwise. Music has a profound way of transforming people physically, mentally, emotional, and spiritually. I am dedicated to helping others access that transformative power and tap into their own creative potential.

I don't believe that talent is necessary to play the piano.

I do believe that anyone with dedication and practice can make music.

I hold a Bachelor of Music degree in performance summa cum laude from the University of Maine's School of Performing Arts. I am a member of Music Teachers National Association and Maine Music Teachers Association where I recently completed a two-year term as Vice President for Programs. I am currently in the process of completing the requirements to become a Nationally Certified Teacher of Music (NCTM).

In addition to teaching, I serve as Director of Music and Associate Lay Leader for the First United Methodist Church in Lincoln.

In my spare time, I love learning languages, traveling, reading, and meditation. I'm also actively involved with several peace and justice organizations and often head to Augusta to advocate for issues that I am passionate about.

Thank you for visiting Tune Factory Music Studio. I look forward to making music together soon!
