Andy LeGrand ('07 BA Music) may be the successful owner of LeGrand Music Studios in Knoxville, Tenn., but he still remembers the sage advice that Phil Weaver, classical guitarist and adjunct instructor at UAH, shared with him during his days as a music student. "'You've just gotta get out there and play,' he would say. 'Just do it. Make things happen within a music scene'." It stoked a passion LeGrand had since the age of four, growing up in Atlanta, Ga. "My father taught me my first melody on the guitar," he says. "I was in a children's choir when I was a boy." Later, he attended Pebblebrook High School, a performing arts conservatory, where he "toured heavily" with a vocal trio. It wasn't until 2004, however, that he opened his own studio in Guntersville, Ala., where he and his wife Holly had moved for her job.
