Andrew Quartermain is CEO and Artistic Director of Pro Corda Trust, one of the largest music charities and course providers in Europe.
Pro Corda is the leading provider for chamber music education in UK and, since 2006, Andrew has overseen an expansion that has quadrupled the organisation’s size and introduced a number of new nationally leading education programmes, together with the fundraising for them – including Pro Corda’s flagship series for children with disabilities which he founded (now the leading provider of its kind for Special Educational Needs schools in UK.)
As a pianist, Andrew has collaborated with some of the world’s leading artists and was a prize winner at the Guildhall where he studied after Cambridge.
His work as a teacher takes in a rare spectrum of areas and focus that stretches from coaching some of the UK’s most gifted instrumentalists to specialist work for children with autism (where Andrew has written and launched a number of innovative education programmes and publications) through to an international Piano Film series for Adult Learners.
Andrew has composed a number of works, including music theatre and a new version of “Scrooge!” for schools. He regularly appears on a wide variety of media from TV to radio, and is a regular contributor to BBC Children in Need, and adjudicates at Festivals and competitions throughout the country.
