Andrew Gavin has been surrounded by music his whole life and coming from a large musical family helped nurture his desire to be a professional musician.
A graduate of Rowan University, Andrew holds a Bachelor of Music degree in Composition as well as a Bachelor of Arts in Voice.
Andrew has written for a number of ensembles and has had music premiered by the Tim Keyes Consort and Rowan University Concert Choir among others. His arrangements have been performed by school ensembles all across NJ and NY. His music has been performed at weddings, churches, concerts and recitals and has been used in films, podcasts, musical theatre productions and art galleries.
His music is a perfect mix of classic elements and contemporary concepts. He has been featured on The Composer Chronicles podcast where he described his music as more traditional but sometimes leaning towards the experimental.
Andrew excels at writing melodies and they are considered one of his strong suits. One of his core values is that every instrument is involved as much as possible, so he crafts his music - chamber pieces especially - around this idea.
He is also an avid poet and has written some of his own texts that have been set to music, most notably and recently "Darkness Surrounds Me."
