Having spent many years as both a reed player and music director for community theatre, Ande had the opportunity to become involved in productions on many levels. That involvement includes much of the behind the scenes stage and prep work in addition to the musical aspects. A Good Reed Review combines Ande’s analytical skills with a wealth of theatrical and musical experience to provide freelance services as both a musician and a writer.
As a musician, Ande freelances as a player, an arranger, and a music director. Ande’s playing focuses on A/Bb/Eb clarinet, soprano/alto/tenor saxophone, and flute/piccolo/alto flute. As a writer, Ande freelances both in the arts and as a technical writer.
Read Ande’s full-length theatrical and book reviews; commentaries and stories on various arts related subjects (some very loosely related); and some promotional material on this site. In addition to commentaries that appear here on A Good Reed Review, links to some external publications of interest are also included on the Commentary & Pubs page.
A list of Ande’s performances and public appearances along with some samples of Ande’s playing are available on the Appearances page.
Readers are invited to pose items for discussion or share thoughts with Ande and other readers on the Discussion page.
