Andrew Bain is the Founder of Invested Musician. He has had an incredibly successful career as Principal Horn, International Soloist, Recording Artist, Educator, Festival Manager and more. But - his career didn't start there. It was a long journey that started out with a discipline to practice and commitment to improvement learned at an early age.
As he developed his skill, he set his sights high on landing a principal position at a top orchestra. He worked relentlessly towards this goal, made mistakes along the way and learned a lot in the process.
After, winning 7 orchestral positions on 3 different continents, holding teaching positions at 5 different academic institutions and playing Principal in films such as Star Wars, he knows how to effectively (and profitably) be the solution employers are looking for.
Under Invested Musician, he is helping others unlock their full potential in their music careers. This coupled with Rupal Bain's expertise in business, finance and tax provides an innovative and integrated solution for the classical music industry - unlike anything else.
