Tomasz Andrzejewski is a virtuoso, session musician and guitar teacher. Born on 1979 in Jastrzębie-Zdrój (south Poland).
Started his guitar journey when he was six. First taking private lessons latter alone inspired by virtuosos like Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Paul Gilbert, Andy Timmons, Yngwie Malmsteen, Vinie Moore and many others. When 17 he was playing technically on a extremely high level and started serious musical studies in a private Popular and Jazz Music School in Katowice. Unfortunately he exhausted the school program after just 2 years although it was supposed to last 5. Constantly working to improve his skills he started creating his own compositions. It came to him so effortlessly that he began to sell many of them as songs to popular music communities which also helped him to maintain his budget.
Later he started working as session musician playing mainly as a substitute for famous polish guitarists like for example Zbigniew Krebs. He also recorded many albums and played with many stars of music industry in Poland. He played next to many artist among them are Marek Raduli (Budka Suflera, PR2), Zbigniew Krebs (Maryla Rodowicz, Chemia), Wojciech Hoffman (TURBO), Scott Henderson, Steve Vai, Marco Sfogli, Neil Zaza and that's just some from a long list of exceptional guitarists.
Still that did not satisfied his passion for music, in 2008 Tomasz released his first full length solo album titled “Not Made In China”, distributed through polish guitar magazine “Gitarzysta” in 15000 copies. That was a turning point for him. He started to conduct workshops and courses for different companies. Meanwhile he taught guitar and created three systems of advanced teaching “Breaking technical and theoretical barriers”, “Two step guitar for beginners” and “7 Steps of Advancement”. In 2011 he recorded his second album “Mr.Guitarist”, emitting 7500 copies, together with Ibanez with which he works until today as an only musician that runs workshops for them.
In 2013 he won prestigious award granted by Polish guitar magazines “Guitar Awards 2013” for the best Polish Rock Guitarist. It is and important prize as it was given only to the best depending on their music genre. Marek Napiórkowski – Jazz, Wojtek Pilichowski – Bass Guitar, Litza – Metal, Leszek Cichoński – Blues. They are the best of the best in Poland.
Currently he is working on realising his third full length album in October for which he invited such leading world guitarists as Marco Sfogli, Fabrizio Bicio Leo, Alex Agento, Feodor Dosumov, Muris Varajić, Falipe Prino as well as Polish top musicians like Grzegorz Skawiński or Jacek Królik and many more both from Poland and other countries.
Tomasz played hundreds of concerts and appears as a session musician in country and abroad. Moreover he manages his own three guitar school with one prestigious in Warsaw the capital of Poland while still partnering as a tutor, teaching many guitar teachers in music schools all around his homeland. His school train huge number of guitarists each year but he is not settling for that as another three of his schools are to be opened in 2015. Another work in progress to be released this spring is DVD school with international sale and advertising.
