Andrew Furmanczyk (AKA Lypur), born 1986 in Canada. Andrew began piano lessons at age 5, and continued lessons until age 21. He performed piano background music around 5 hours per week at age 16 and was planning a performance career, but after a serious heart condition altered his plans, he started teaching YouTube piano lessons in 2006. Andrew has a huge passion for VG music since a child.
He played FFVII for the first time at age 12 and has since replayed the game from start to finish a total of 4 times. From that first play-through he fell in love with the story, the characters, and it's music. He currently teaches piano and music theory, in real life, skype, and through online courses on https://youtube.com/lypur as well as http://howtoplaypiano.ca. Andrew considers it a huge honor to be able to contribute on a project so close to his heart.
