4 years of studying and performing in Lithuania, Andrius relocated to

Conservatorium in Groningen, then subsequently at the Conservatorium van
Amsterdam where he received his Bachelor of Music degree in Jazz Saxophone.
During his studies in Amsterdam, Andrius regularly performed with various jazz
groups within Europe including several international competitions. In 2013, he
won the Leiden Jazz Award with the Andrius Dereviancenko Quartet and won
the Public and Best Composition prize at Tremplin Jazz Avignon with the band

Following his studies and a brief period in Copenhagen, he moved back to
