About Andy

A Los Angeles native, Andrew Hill began performing professionally at age 15. His musical interests initially formed through the immersion of his parents vast and varied record collection, including everything from jazz, RnB, showtunes, classic rock, and even his mother’s prized disco collection. In his teens, Andrew began his assimilation into the Los Angeles music scene: in recording sessions, music clubs, and churches. He began working both as a sideman, and a bandleader performing his own compositions. This love of music propelled him to obtain both his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the University of Southern California. Andrew Hill has performed across the country and the world, spanning an artist and genre lineup as diverse as his parent’s music collection. As an educator, Andrew can work with each student as an individual on an array of instruments, carefully in tune with his or her specific goals as a musician, to develop a path that will offer the most success, gratification, and fun.
