2011 Honour Combo A
2012 Summer Jazz Workshop
Andrew Marzotto’s keen interest and appreciation of all forms of music developed early. By age 9 he had started playing guitar and his early days as a musician included playing rock with local bands. As he matured, his musical interests shifted whereupon entering High School and participating in the school band, he discovered Jazz. Shortly thereafter he joined the Humber College Community Music School. His passion for jazz led him to audition for and participate in the 2010 Berklee Jazz workshop and the 2011 Summer Performance Program. He was awarded full scholarships for each program. He also participated in the 91.1 FM Youth Jazz Band for three years and in 2011 he was named to Toronto’s Youth Jazz in the City Honour Band and then in 2012 he was named to Youth Jazz Canada’s National Youth Jazz Combo. He has performed in Canada as well as various cities in America with these bands as well as various trios. He also played in the 2012 Yamaha All Star Band where he received the Music Industry’s Association of Canada Scholarship. Andrew has had the privilege of working with many ensemble directors including Jules Estrin, Kirk MacDonald, Lorne Lofsky and Terri-Lynne Carrington and their input and feedback has contributed to his growth as a maturing musician. He is currently completing his undergraduate degree on full tuition scholarship at The Berklee College of Music, where he is studying performance and film scoring. He has studied with Mick Goodrick, Jack Pezanelli and Bret Willmott and is excited to be embarking on this journey of musical development.
