Broadway player and award-winning violist who has played in a wide range of settings from Saturday Night Live, to the New York Philharmonic and Houston Symphony Orchestra, to onstage with Lauryn Hill, Pete Townshend, Estelle, and Solange. I've also done orchestrations for classical settings, R&B, and Off-Broadway. Feel free to message me!
I have been playing viola and composing for 29 years, and I am always looking for new ventures. I've performed with orchestras around the country and the world.

Andrew is very talented as a musician and a pleasure to work with. He created exactly what I needed and I couldn't have been happier. Great musical instinct as well as high recording quality.
Andrew was easy to work with and he answered all my questions promptly. He understood what I was asking for from the beginning and delivered exactly what I wanted & on time. I would recommend Andrew & work with him again.
Amazing player, very versatile and easy to book and work with. Andrew provided viola recordings for 2 string quartets including audio and video. very happy with the results.
Amazing player! Very easy to communicate with and bounce ideas around to quickly get the song what it needed. Looking forward to working with Andrew on another song soon - Highly Recommended!
I’ve known Andrew for years and worked with him several times on recitals and musical theater productions. If I had to hire a violin/viola player, he is #1 on my list. Reliable player, fast learner, easy to get along with, and top-notch technical skills on the instrument. He’s also creative and clearly loves music.
I would hire Andrew Any day anytime for anything. He is one of the most professional, hard-working, and artful musicians that I’ve ever worked with.
If you need a highly skilled Violist, you should hire Andrew.
I have worked on multiple projects with him and he has made every one of them sound amazing with his brilliant lush sound.
Not only is he very talented, but also creative and totally reliable.
Andrew is not only one of the most talented musicians I’ve had the pleasure of working with; he is also one of the most humble/nicest guys you will come across! I’ve now worked on multiple projects with him— from Broadway to recording albums, to performing with singer/songwriters... Andrew always brings his “A-Game”. The level of musicianship he holds is unmeasurable! I always look forward to being on the same projects as him— so whenever the opportunity arises, he is my first call!
Andrew Griffin has played strings for some of my projects. Andrew not only brings an amazing level of talent &!professionalism but also a keen ear and ability to speak the music. I don’t know how he does it, but he is literally able to get a group of musicians to listen &do their absolute best!
I have also used Andrew to arrange. He pays such attention to detail. His charts where clean, marked perfectly, & stunning. He has a perfect mix of stark classical style with the emotion and swell that drives the dramatics! It is an honor to have his arrangement on my projects! Fully recommended!
