Andrew Dawydchak has demonstrated a passion for performing and commitment for teaching that surpasses his young years.  Andrew has currently completed his third year at Humber College in the Music Degree Program (Violin).
Andrew has shown how his classical training as a Suzuki student can intertwine with folk, fiddle, country, Celtic and jazz music.  He has studied with Margot Jewell who he credits for guiding and encouraging his passion for different kinds of music to flourish.  He also has taken SOSI masterclasses with Brian Lewis and now currently studies with Drew Jurecka.
While initially volunteering his time to teach fiddle to the students at ESM, it has now become a popular and permanent ESM Fiddle Enrichment Class because of high demand. He also teaches students privately at his home in Etobicoke. Students like his positive, gentle, patient and guided approach to helping them improve their playing. 
Andrew is no stranger to the stage.  He is the Canadian Open Junior Fiddle Champion for 2015 and winner of many top honour fiddle awards since 2005 including the Ontario Open, Southwestern Open, Northern Ontario Open and Maritimes and many others for his age category and duet categories.  He is recipient of the Best Intermediate violinist NYMF (2013) and Summerfolk Youth Discoveries Showcase winner (2012).  He performs regularly with his band (DnA—Diana & Andrew) as well with other musicians.
