Andrew Wilder


Andrew Wilder was born into a musical family with parents that are both professional
classical musicians, and 10 brothers and sisters that have all studied classical music extensively. He
has performed and studied throughout Europe, the United States and South America. Upon
completing high school, he traveled to Europe to study in the Istituto Musicale Pareggiato Della
Valle D’Aosta in Aosta, Italy and, in the following year, the Conservatorio Svizzera Italiana in
Lugano, Swizerland where he completed two artist diplomas in guitar performance under the
instruction of Lorenzo Micheli. Wilder has also studied privately with Matteo Mela, Denis Azabagic
and Paul Galbraith, and has performed in master classes in Europe and the United States with
professors including Aniello Desiderio, Zoran Dukic, Sussana Prieto, Carlos Perez, Roland Dyens,
Rene Izquerdo, Johannes Moller, Massimo Lonardi, and others.

As a soloist, Wilder has been the recipient of several awards including the first prize in the
Senior Guitar competition of Society of American Musicians, and a recipient of the Koch Cultural
Trust grant. He participated in music festivals including the Mediterranean Guitar Festival in Cervo,
Italy and The Masterworks Festival. Wilder was recently invited to give solo recitals in the Teatro de
Camsicá in Samaca, Colombia, and at the Catedral de Villa de Leyva, Colombia. Currently he is
pursuing a degree in guitar performance with Dr. Andrew Zohn at the Schwob School of Music,
where he performs as a soloist and takes part in various chamber projects. He is also increasingly
involved in creating arrangements and transcriptions for both solo guitar, and guitar in ensemble.
