    About Andrew Faulkenberry

    Andrew Faulkenberry is a composer and music educator born in New Jersey and currently based in the Baltimore–Washington, D.C. area. He received a Bachelor of Music in Composition from Rutgers University ('21), where he studied with Brian Landrus and Robert Aldridge, and a Master of Music in Composition from the Peabody Institute ('23), where he studied with Kevin Puts.

    Andrew began studying music at age 8 when he began taking guitar lessons and writing songs. Throughout middle and high school, he played trombone in concert and jazz bands, gigged as the bassist and vocalist of a rock trio Running With Scissors, and learned the piano. These experiences gave him a deep appreciation for how music education enriches a young person's life.

    Since then, Andrew's primary focus has been on composition. He has written for artists such as the International Contemporary Ensemble, members of the Albany Symphony, the Parker Quartet, the Julius Quartet, the Peabody Symphony Orchestra, and the Rutgers Wind Ensemble. In addition, he has attended Brevard Music Center, Bowdoin International Music Festival, and Connecticut Summerfest as a composition fellow.

    While studying at Peabody Institute, Andrew taught music theory and ear training as a Graduate Assistant. He has also served as a Peer Instructor for Rutgers University's First-Year Interest Group Seminar (FIGS) program.

    Outside of music, Andrew enjoys hiking and walking, reading, puzzles, video games, and philosophy.
