Author Bio
Andrew Hagerman
Andrew Hagerman has been a professional musician and teacher for the majority of his 40+ years, beginning his musical life at the early age of eight as an aspiring tubist and continuing to study at Northwestern University in Chicago. During his time there, MIDI and computer music were in their infancy, and Andy recognized the usefulness of music technology in aiding the creative process. Andy had the opportunity of learning the new technological tools of the trade as they were being invented and refined, and his quest for the best in audio and music technology ultimately brought him to use and teach Avid's Pro Tools. As a performer and arranger, Andy has worked with numerous ensembles of all types, including many years of playing at Disneyland, Walt Disney World, and Tokyo Disneyland. As a composer, he's active in the creation of planetarium and science center productions, and his work can be heard worldwide. With a passion for teaching, Andy has also worked as the Associate Course Director of Advanced Audio Workstations at Full Sail Real World University in Winter Park, Florida, and has authored seven books on audio production and Pro Tools. Andy currently manages Avid's Asia-Pacific Training Partner Program, working with excellent educational institutions throughout the region to offer the highest level of audio and video training to the next generation of creative professionals.
