Meet Your Teacher

My name is Andrew McCormick, and I am a pianist and teacher with almost two decades of experience working with students of all ages, levels, and musical backgrounds. I was a really shy kid, and music helped me to move out of my comfort zone and accomplish things that I never would have otherwise. Music has a profound way of transforming people physically, mentally, emotional, and spiritually. I am dedicated to helping others access that transformative power and tap into their own creative potential.

I don't believe that talent is necessary to play the piano.

I do believe that anyone with dedication and practice can make music.

I have a Bachelor of Music degree in performance from the University of Maine's School of Performing Arts where I graduated summa cum laude. I am a member of Music Teachers National Association and Maine Music Teachers Association where I am recently completed a two-year term as Vice President for Programs and am now serving on the planning committee for the biennial Pine Tree Piano Competition. I am currently in the process of completing the requirements to become a Nationally Certified Teacher of Music (NCTM).

In addition to teaching, I am the Director of Music and Associate Lay Leader for the First United Methodist Church in Lincoln.

In my spare time, I love learning languages (Greek is my new project), traveling, reading, and meditation. I'm also actively involved with several peace and justice organizations and often head to Augusta to advocate for issues that I am passionate about.

Thank you for visiting I look forward to making music together soon!

We are into the second week of our "Mostly Mozart" Summer Session. The Mozarts hit the road. Wolfie and Nannerl wow the crowds. Marie Antoinette does NOT become the next Mrs. Mozart.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is one of the greatest composers of all time. A musical prodigy, he composed some of the greatest piano works ever written.

He was the Drake or Cardy B of his time... a real rockstar. So our learning assignments will include:

  • Getting Wolfgang's autograph
  • Designing his next album cover
  • Writing him fan mail
  • Following his European “tour” schedule
  • And, of course, listening to his music (some of it with a “pop” twist)
