Well-known for his compositions and arrangements, Andrew R. Mackereth has more than 50 compositions; religious and secular in print; many frequently feature on the concert programmes of premier Salvation Army Bands. These, along with numerous manuscripts awaiting publication, are continually featured on international broadcasts and recordings.

Andrew Mackereth was born in Gateshead Tyne & wear in 1965. A fourth generation Salvationist, he first attended a meeting aged barely a week old. The son of officer parents, he has lived in many places including 4 years in Zambia and nine years in Kingston-Upon-Hull. It was here that he began his earliest musical training.

Andrew earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from the Birmingham Conservatoire and for nearly twenty years taught music in Secondary Schools. He is now a Head Teacher by profession, and continues to be in demand as conductor, composer and lecturer and has appeared throughout the United Kingdom, America, Germany and Argentina.

In September 2007, he was appointed Headteacher of the Heart of England School in Balsall Common, England. Andrew lives in Nuneaton with his wife Stella and two children, Eleanor and Joshua. They all attend Nuneaton Citadel, where Andrew serves as Bandmaster.

In 2008 he was invited by the well-known New York Staff Band of the Salvation Army to participate in the Profile 30 concert.

On this week's show we are featuring his wonderful composition 'Amazing Race'. If you have not seen any of Andrew's music you are certainly missing out.
