Understanding basic music concepts (i.e. Tonality, Texture, Dynamics, etc.), then Andrew has you covered. I took MUS101 online with Ryerson and was overwhelmed with the sheer amount of concepts presented with little reinforcement. Andrew helped train my ear to recognize different textures, tempo, tonality among other concepts. He took difficult concepts and broke them down to ensure I was able to comprehend the material. Andrew is very knowledgeable and a great person to work with, I would highly recommend him if you need help with anything related to music." - Ankur J. (2015) Andrew is extremely knowledgeable in his field of study. He helped a great deal with music theory using information from the course as well as his own experience. If you have difficulty understanding a concept he will work effortlessly to ensure you are able to comprehend the material. Overall an outstanding and trustworthy individual. Highly recommend his services for anyone needing help in music. - Marina C. (2016) Andrew is a fantastic teacher! He is patient, understanding and great with kids. I'm very comfortable leaving my God Child with him know that she will learn and have fun at the same time! - Cortney Mills (2018)

Andrew James Clark is a Toronto based composer who has spent the last several years combining his love of contemporary music with a passion for public speaking and concert presentations. His concert series Classical Context, which has been featured on ludwig-van.com's “Critic’s Picks”, has showcased a substantial amount of early-career professionals from throughout Canada who have performed his compositions alongside their own traditional repertoire. His professional development includes a Masters Degree in composition from the University of Toronto, a Composition Fellowship with the Hamilton Philharmonic, a residency with the University of Toronto’s Wind Ensemble, and a published work with Counterpoint Library. He has conducted a number of his own chamber works in concert as well as works by other emerging composers in U of T’s 2017 New Music Festival. These activities earned him a conducting apprenticeship with Orchestra Toronto under the supervision of Maestro Kevin Mallon in 2018. A focus on community building has consistently remained at the forefront of Andrew’s musical activities which include his efforts in sustaining a music therapy program for elderly and homeless musicians that earned him a Gordon Cressy Student Leadership Award in 2016. Andrew has recently been tasked with reviving the Canadian Composers Orchestra, an organization founded in 1983 by such notable composers as Samuel Dolin. Since the lockdown Andrew has been working to transform his organization Classical Context into an online music education hub in an attempt to consolidate and formalize his musical activities online. He is currently composing a symphonic dance, and a piano suite. Bio Updated (2020)
