    Andy Holiner

    The minute Andy walks in through the door and begins strumming his guitar, students' faces light up and smiles abound.  Everyone shares in Andy's enthusiasm, wanting you to join in and make music with him.  He cares passionately about each and every student he works with and takes the time to let them know.  Andy has been a teaching artist with VSA MA for over 20 years.  He leads the Creative Kids Program at the Boston College Campus School, where he brings music to students with significant disabilities and medical needs.  For the past two years, Andy has also taught songwriting and drumming to young students in a Department of Mental Health program, enabling them to write songs that help them express feeling and thoughts in a safe way.  Andy teaches with contagious gusto, care, and commitment—excitement that inspires those who are fortunate to work with him.  He has contributed immensely to the COOL Schools family of teaching artists, sharing valuable resources, ideas, and creativity.
