Andrea Smith, a Fargo native, received her MM in Oboe Performance from the University of Nebraska at Omaha and her BS in Music from North Dakota State University. She is an extremely active freelance performer on woodwinds and hosts a private studio of 10 oboe students, as well making and selling handmade oboe reeds both in-state and online. Andrea is active in Orchestra Omaha and Omaha Symphonic Winds as an oboist and clarinetist respectively, and has subbed as a section oboist in the Fargo Moorhead Symphony and Sioux City Symphony. She has backed up esteemed artists such as Amy Grant, Jordan Smith, Michael W. Smith, Conrad Tao, and Charlie Albright. She has also been active in the musical theater scene, playing in the pit orchestras of several professional, amateur, and high school shows per year.
Being an advocate for Music Education of all forms is what makes Andrea passionate about her work at Schmitt Music. She loves to connect with and serve musicians and teachers from all backgrounds through the store and out in the community, supporting the Nebraska and Iowa music education and performance scenes.
Andrea’s keyboard background includes being self-taught at the age of 12 – when other students wanted to play Fur Elise or Heart and Soul, she opted to learn Bach instead. In college, she studied piano via group classes and became proficient at intermediate playing, reading choral parts, and playing choral warm-ups. Today, her favorite piano activities include singing and playing and studying ear training.
When she’s not performing or working, she can be found at home playing board games with her husband Tim.
