Andrea MacWilliams

Andrea discovered her passion for music at a young age, where she began learning piano at the age of 5 and then quickly took up singing, drums, and guitar. She studied piano under Diana Torbert, and voice under Lucy Hayes-Davis. She then pursued her Bachelor of Music in Composition at the University of Ottawa (2017), where she studied voice under Christiane Riel, head of the vocal sector. While her educational background is largely classical, Andrea prioritizes versatility in her approach to teaching, and is glad to help students pursue genres such as jazz, pop and musical theatre as well. She is delighted to teach voice and piano at the Ottawa Vocal & Instrumental School of Music, and to share her love of music with students of all ages.
