About the Author
Andrew Hagerman began his musical life at the early age of eight as an aspiring tubist. Excelling at his craft, he studied at the prestigious Northwestern University in Chicago. During his time there, he also discovered a passion for position and arranging, creating works for orchestra, chamber ensemble and even jazz and rock bands. MIDI and computer music were in their infancy at this time, and Andy immediately recognized the usefulness of music technology in aiding the creative process. As a performer, he has performed in numerous ensembles of all types, and even enjoyed many years of playing at Disneyland, Walt Disney World, and Tokyo Disneyland. As a composer, he has been very active in the creation of planetarium and science center soundtracks, and his work can be heard worldwide, including at the renowned American Museum of Natural History in New York City. Hagerman has also worked as the Associate Course Director of Advanced Audio Workstations at Full Sail Real World Education in Winter Park, Florida, and currently heads up Avid's training and certification program for the Asia/Pacific region.
