About Andy

Andy Woodard has been teaching at the BRIT school for over 15 years, with many of his students going on to become in-demand and successful musicians.

Regularly touring and recording with Adam Ant and other artists keeps his knowledge of the live and recorded industry up to speed, which is important to those students going into both areas.

He also plays regularly as a bass player and lead singer, and produces artists at his home studio in Kent, allowing him to understand the drums from different angles and share this knowledge in his teaching.

His holistic approach to playing the drums works exceptionally well with the syllabus here at BRIT School.
