For Tudor Andrei, teaching represents the other wing of his musical life, having a special affinity for it since he was 13, when he started teaching first, working with his father’s pupils and soon his teaching was supervised by great professors and encouraged.
Starting with the age of 15, he was teaching privately in Bucharest, until the age of 19 when he left for London.
Great Britain was the country where he established himself as an efficient teacher, being even from his arrival the private assistant of his Royal Academy of Music Professor, Remus Azoitei.
Always sociable, open and close to young people, Tudor was invited throughout England to “preside”open music classes for big number of pupils: playing violin, talking about music, answering and asking question, presenting his instrument, involving everyone, in what most of the Schools Committee named “a fresh sharing enthusiasm, perfectly structured  musical class.”
Tudor Andrei’s method of teaching blends features of Eastern and Western European Schools of Violin Teaching, always in demand to share his knowledge with talented, ambitious and hardworking students and promoting them.
Tudor has a vast knowledge of the repertoire and literature of the instrument, always adapting to the personality of each student.
Less than half of the students under his guidance, where older than him.
He has a Degree in Teaching from the Royal Academy of Music in London, during the Course, he has been part of many projects involving pupils of all ages, nationalities, backgrounds and IQ levels.
Most of his students are today part of orchestras(G.Enescu Philharmonic, Radio Orchestra of Bucharest, Orpheus London, etc), chamber music groups, young teachers, or still developing on the stage, winning Competitions in Romania, Italy, Great Britain, or being accepted at Junior Programs of the Royal Academy of Music, Royal College of Music, Guildhall School of Music, Trinity College in London and other Music Institutions in Great Britain, to name a few.
