Andy Normandale

Andy Normandale is a guitar and ukulele teacher based in York providing tuition at schools, both primary and secondary,
and private tuition. He teaches mainly classical style guitar and has been teaching in York since 1994. He worked as an instrumental teacher for York City Council for 10 years, but since the council now no longer provides this service he now provides the same service at York schools privately. He has an enhanced CRB check.


Andy took up the guitar at the age of 14, and has grade 8 in Classical guitar. He gave guitar lessons in his spare time for several years, and began teaching full time in 1994. While teaching he has continued to develop his teaching skills, particularly by studying for the Open University for a Certificate of Professional Development in Instrumental Teaching, which has allowed him to work as a whole class music teacher in primary schools. He started playing the ukulele in 2005.
