RNCM graduate Andrea Vogler enjoys a varied portfolio career as a percussionist.
She has played with orchestras including the Halle, BBC Philharmonic and English National Ballet; and works regularly with Royal Northern Sinfonia, Manchester Camerata and Northern Chamber Orchestra.
Her education and outreach work includes project design, staff training and mentoring for Live Music Now, Jessie’s Fund and NCO. She is also part of Manchester Camerata’s award winning ‘Music in Mind’ team delivering pioneering group music therapy sessions for people living with Dementia and their carers.
She has worked in West End theatre, toured the UK as a recitalist for the Countess of Munster Musical Trust, and is an active chamber musician. Recent chamber projects include interdisciplinary collaborations with Noisy Toys Robotic Orchestra and MMU; and performance poet Louise Wallwein.
Her broad range of teaching experience has led to roles as a specialist Clinician for BASBWE, RNCM Day of Percussion, the National Association of Percussion Teachers, and Percussive Arts Society UK.
In 2016 she was the recipient of an RNCM Teaching and Learning Award in recognition of her excellence and innovation in teaching and learning. She is currently engaged in a cutting-edge collaborative research project funded by the RNCM looking at how the snare drum is played and taught.
Andrea is on the teaching staff at the RNCM, Junior RNCM, and Chetham’s School of Music.
