About Alex

Experienced multi-instrumentalist: guitarist, pianist & flautist based in London, specialised in a vast range of genres.
Pianist
Cambridge
Public liability insurance of £10 million
Verified profile

A skilled and experienced professional musician/multi-instrumentalist (guitarist, pianist and flautist) with professional skills including arranging orchestral music, world music and videography production, composing orchestral work for film score and TV commercials, etc. - Guitar I have been playing guitar for 17 years. I started with classical guitar at the age of 11, and switched to electric guitar and modern music two years later. I have had lessons with some great names. I'm a versatile guitarist who is familiar with many different modern genres i.e. pop, rock, blues, country, bossa nova, samba, jazz, funk, reggae and fusion, amongst many others. - Piano I am equally proficient on the piano as I am on the guitar. I started playing keyboard at the age of four with a local tutor for a few of years and have never stopped teaching myself and practising since then. Styles that I am most familiar with on piano include jazz, latin, and pop. I attended the Jazz degree course at Middlesex University to study jazz piano and have been taught by some of the UK's most demanded jazz musicians e.g. Nikki Iles, Stuart Hall, Chris Batchelor, and Gareth Williams to name a few. - Flute A woodwind instrument that I have been enjoying playing since the age of 12. My strongest point when I'm on the flute is jazz improvisation, latin style, world/ethno-fusion music and big band/ensemble performance. I have played with different jazz bands led by Nikki Iles (Royal Academy of Music), and Kate Williams (Guildhall School of Music and Drama).

Alex was a really great element to our wedding day. With a professional and brilliant performance, promoting great feedback and enjoyment from my guests. In particular, his rendition of 'Sweet Child O' Mine, producing complimentary dialogue from the audience. We were really happy to have booked him and would highly recommend this acomplished and established musical artist.

We celebrated our Anniversary in style, with Alex performing on piano and guitar. It was a real treat, It certainly contributed to making our anniversary very special. A very small intimate event in our garden, made even the neighbours jealous. We loved the way you performed Blue in Green and Nature Boy. Alex you are so talented. You provided the ambience, so elegant and sophisticated. 5 stars from us. Thanks also to your violinist, Iza who was a great compliment to you. Looking forward to booking you again soon. Kevin & Sharon

We hired Alex for a business function in central London. His music was very well received and offered exactly the background music we were after as well as creating a lovely atmosphere. He's very talented. Alex was on time, easy to communicate with and very friendly. Very happy with how everything worked, thank you.
