Andrew Morris

Andrew Morris is a Philadelphia area bassist, composer, sound designer, audio engineer, and teacher. As a recent graduate of University of the Arts with a degree in Jazz Bass Performance, Andrew has had many opportunities to study with some of the best musicians that Philadelphia has to offer and to expand his interests into new fields such as sound design, audio engineering, synthesis, and film scoring. Andrew plays with several groups including indie rock outfit, The Armchairs, his original jazz quintet, Whitmer & Whitmer, and plays gigs around the region with various musical and theatrical groups. For Andrew, music is the most fun a person can have and this idea is the foundation for his instruction. Andrew aims to inspire his students, in the way that his great teachers have inspired him. He emphasizes improvisation, confidence, versatility, good habits, a strong foundation, and the concept of music as a language.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
