Andrew Murphy

Teaching Piano since August 2020

Andrew started taking piano lessons when he was 4 years old. He continued to do so all the way through college, with only one break when he studied abroad in 2017. He graduated from Wake Forest University in 2020 with a BA in biology and English and is currently pursuing a Master of Science in Library Science (MSLS) at UNC Chapel Hill.

Even though he didn’t major in music, Andrew was very involved in classical music at Wake Forest University. He studied piano with Dr. Peter Kairoff and chamber music with Jacqui Carrasco. He competed in the Giles-Harris Piano Competition at Wake Forest University and received the Ward Virts Prize for Pianistic Expressiveness in 2019 and the Sinal Prize (First Place) in 2020. In addition, he played keyboards in the Wake Forest Orchestra and hosted a weekly classical music show on Wake Radio. He was also an intern at the Winston-Salem Symphony from 2018-2019 and, after that, tutored WFU student-athletes in biology and music.

He believes in taking a holistic approach to music education and encouraging students to connect music to their other interests.

In his free time, Andrew likes to read, go hiking, and plan vacations that aren’t possible right now.
