BIOGRAPHY

Andrew Andron is a prodigious pianist and composer who has been captivating New York audiences for over a decade with astonishing versatility and striking touch.

His journey began at the age of three when he first discovered the piano. He self-taught for several years followed by classical training at a number of schools and conservatories including Mannes School of Music. Andrew's formative years were spent eagerly at the side of his mentor, internationally-renowned jazz master, Barry Harris. Dr. Harris took the nine-year-old protégé under his wing as they would soon go on to share the stage and carry forth a hallowed tradition for many years to come.

By the age of ten, Andrew began performing throughout many of New York's most prominent venues including Village Vanguard, Birdland, Blue Note, Jazz Standard, Iridium, The Bitter End, Symphony Space, Lincoln Center, and Carnegie Hall, among many others. He has had the distinct honor of working with Barry Harris, Les Paul, Richie Cannata, Gerardo Velez, Chuck Israels, Ray Drummond, Leroy Williams, Mike Rodriguez, Chad Lefkowitz-Brown, and Arturo O'Farrill, as well as the immense privilege of having performed alongside Tony Bennett, José Feliciano, Al Jardine, Mikhail Baryshnikov, and the Malpaso Dance Company.

Andrew holds a B.M. in Instrumental Performance from New York University where he studied with Don Friedman, Alan Broadbent, Chris Potter, and Lenny White.

In 2020, following several years of performing as a frequent guest both in residency and on tour, Andrew became a member of the GRAMMY award-winning Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra as the only pianist in the group's history other than its founder, pianist, composer, and bandleader, Arturo O'Farrill.

Andrew continues to perform throughout New York and around the world, sharing his love of music with audiences.
