Introducing Andrea Preston
Introducing our newest vocal coach joining the team…
Singer and performer Andrea Preston is based in Glasgow’s Southside and has had a lifelong connection with Riverside, growing up around the studios in Busby.
Andrea undertook a BA in Commercial Music at the University of the West of Scotland at 17, earning the Court Medal for her studies in 2013, graduating with honours in 2015 and has been working in the creative industries ever since.
In 2014, she wrote, recorded and performed as the lead singer of pop-trio Fata Morgana, releasing a debut EP and playing venues such as The Flying Duck, Stereo and Bar Bloc. She then continued as a soloist, performing original material at The Garage, The Arches and became a regular in the Glasgow Open Mic scene. By 2019, Andrea was a resident in several Glasgow bars as the house singer for Friday and Saturday night crowds, which she continues to do.
In 2021 she joined the Riverside Music College staff as an Admin and Student Services Assistant and is excited to now offer contemporary singing lessons with an emphasis on Songwriting and Stagecraft as part of the Private Tuition team.
When not performing, teaching or answering emails, Andrea is currently working on releasing her first comedy music EP.
