As an educator and composer of music, Andrew M. Sanchez is the owner and operator of AM Sanchez Music. Using AM Sanchez Music, he bridges the gap of American jazz and Western classical music in his compositions to appeal to wider audiences and to educate the idea of “music is just music” to strictly single-genre artists.
Sanchez leads “Andrew Sanchmo Sanchez and His Hip Six”, a septet incorporating early New Orleans style music with his own original taste. The Hip Six tours schools and universities to inform and educate students on the importance of our American music and where it originated. Using this ensemble, he eliminates what is “jazz” and what is “classical” to form it into, simply, music using his own original compositions with the American attitude.
An Outer Banks native of North Carolina, Andrew Sanchez currently resides in Greensboro where he teaches composition, piano, trumpet, and flute privately while also teaching general music and strings for non-profit organization Young Musicians of Alamance, a branch of the El Sistema music education program in addition to performing all over North Carolina. Andrew also serves as the Music Director of Guilford Baptist Church.
