Andrew Salim is a drummer, engineer, producer, and arranger in the boston area. Despite having a late start in music at the ripe old age of 21, that has never stopped him from pursuing his dreams.

After completing a diploma in music production and engineering from SOMA (school of music and the arts), he moved to New York to study at the Drummer’s collective for a year, before receiving a scholarship to study at Berklee college of music.
In the Boston area, he maintains a very busy school schedule. Aside from his heavy involvement in campus, he is also busy doing a lot of gigs for the Chinese music community.
Right now, he is absorbing as many influences as possible, and learning a variety of skills including composing, arranging, and business. He has studied with many drum teachers including Jon Hazilla, Ian Froman, Jamey Haddad, Dave Dicenso, Terry Lynn Carrington, Neal Smith, Larry finn, Peter Retzlaff, Pat Patrillo, Jason Gianni, Marco Djordjevic, and many others.
