Andy Wasserman

Jazz pianist and native New Yorker Andy Wasserman draws on an astonishingly diverse range of experience in the world of music since becoming a full-time professional musician in 1971. Throughout his career as a multi-instrumentalist, performer, composer, arranger, recording artist, producer and educator, Wasserman has had the privilege of being mentored by three of the finest musicians on the planet - Dwike Mitchell, George Russell and Papa Ladji Camara. In his youth he attended the High School of Music and Art (drums, orchestral percussion) and the Metropolitan Music School (piano and theory) in Manhattan and earned his Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies (composition and theory) from New England Conservatory of Music in Boston.
