Andra Birdsong has been a lover of music from a very early age. Born in Germany, the songs and dancing from the original movie “The Jungle Book” were the only American musical experience she had as a toddler. She moved back to the United States at age 4 and began playing the drums at age 9.

Andra attended Duncanville High School and was very active musically during her school years. She traveled with the school band to New York to play at Carnegie Hall, and later became snare captain during her senior year. Her marching band won the state championship in 2002. Andra graduated from DHS in 2005 and enrolled at Cedar Valley College, where she earned her associate's degree before transferring to Texas Woman’s University.

At TWU, Andra participated in jazz band, Gamelan, pep band, and wind ensemble. She also accompanied the choir and flute choir as a percussionist. Andra graduated from TWU with honors, earning her Bachelor’s degree in Music Therapy. 

Teaching runs in Andra's family (her mother and grandmother are both educators), and she soon found that teaching came naturally to her. She found herself teaching other music students during her undergraduate years, and beginning in 2010, she volunteered at the Denton Juvenile Detention Center, teaching lessons on drum set, snare, and guitar. In 2013, Andra began visiting students' homes for private lessons. She currently offers drum lessons to students of all skill levels, guitar lessons to students at the beginner through intermediate level, and piano to beginners and childen. She also plays in a cover band, The Texas Trail Mixers, that is comprised of Dallas ISD teachers. They perform funk, rock, and other instrumental music throughout the Dallas area. 

Music is Andra’s passion. She loves rhythms and enjoys musical encounters with others. She wants each and every student to thrive in music. Andra is a patient, empathetic, and communicative teacher. If a student is having trouble practicing, Andra seeks creative solutions to help inspire and motivate the student to get back on track. Her goal is success and a positive learning experience for all!
