As an experienced music arranger and music composer in the Chicago area, Andy can take your "raw material" and turn it into a lead sheet, piano score, or orchestral arrangement. 


Since winning his first song competition in 8th grade and studying theory and composition throughout high School and as a music major at Northwestern University, Andy has written a number of compositions for vocalists, choirs, and small ensembles. In addition, for fun, he has written dozens of musical parodies, primarily to honor people celebrating birthdays and anniversaries

"Happy 'Great' Brithday, Annie" - by Andy Bossov - to the tune of "Swanee" by Gershwin

Annie, how we love ya, how we love ya.

Our dear friend, Annie.

You fill our hearts with glee,

But even more our tummies so deliciously!


Yep, Annie, you're a keeper, 

Nothin' cheap here.

You're aces, Annie.

You model for the whole world to see

That life's for living blessedly.


Annie, Annie,

We celebrate you now.

Annie, Annie,

You're reached the heights, and how!


Annie, Annie,

She-he-cheh-yah--nu.

Annie, Annie,
