As a chamber musician, Andrew loves to explore the possibilities of the horn in various ensembles and gave the first performance of Geoffrey Gordon’s Winterleben for Mezzo Soprano, Horn and Piano at the 2015 International Horn Symposium. Andrew is a regular performer on the LA Phil’s Chamber Music series and is a founding member of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Wind Quintet who performed at Ukaria and the Sydney Opera House in 2019 as part of their Australian tour.

Andrew is passionate about education and is very lucky to work with some of the finest young horn players as the Horn Professor at the Colburn School Conservatory, at the Aspen Music Festival, Australian National Academy of Music and in masterclasses throughout the US, Europe and Australasia.

In 2020, Andrew and his wife Rupal founded Invested Musician, an organization dedicated to helping musicians take their careers to the next level.
