Andrew first began learning to play the piano in order to accompany his father, an accomplished vocalist, during performances.
What first began as a hobby grew into a fully-fledged passion: although initially en route to study medicine, he changed course in order to pursue the piano full time, and has never looked back since. He completed the ABRSM grades within two years at college, while also earning his grade 8 in violin and learning the guitar. He has enjoyed performing as part of his university orchestra, and singing as part of the Glee Show Choir.
Andrew graduated with a degree in Music and Education from the University of Aberdeen in 2015. Andrew began teaching curriculum music in High School classes, but quickly realised individual tuition was what inspired him.
Since graduating, he has founded the Andrew Walker School of Music. He now teaches over 50 students a week in three different convenient locations in Edinburgh: Bruntsfield, Elm Row and Barnton Park.
Andrew has experience working at holiday activity camps, and was very excited to begin his own children's summer camp focused on music and performance.
Andrew creates his own arrangements of popular songs which he often performs at weddings.
Hanah graduated from the University of Aberdeen in June 2015 with a 2:1 BMus (Hons) degree where she studied flute and piano.
She began teaching in 2016 after moving back to Edinburgh and soon set up Hanah Mack Music Tuition offering piano, flute and music theory lessons.
Hanah has been a part of choirs from a young age, including the Edinburgh Youth Choir and the Aberdeen University Choral Society. She was also the co-founder and the original Vice-President of the University of Aberdeen Glee Club in 2012 and loved singing in such a fun environment. She was also the President of the University of Aberdeen Concert Band 2014/15 and really enjoyed organising the rehearsals and concerts and running the band with her student committee.
After great success with Summer Singers from 2017-19, Hanah is very excited to be running it again with Andy for the fourth year in a row - and can't wait to hear what the kids can do!
