Alex plays piano at events such as weddings, christmas parties, birthdays and funerals as well as having residencies at restaurants and pubs. He has done this exclusively since 2009.
Alex has had a passion for music and the piano since he was a young child. However, he did not go to music college and only had a few classical lessons on the piano when he was in his teens. However, he studied piano intensely for around 8 years during his mid-twenties and by 2009 had built up enough experience and skills to turn his passion into a living, and has never looked back.
Experience includes a stint on Holland America Lines cruise ship, numerous events at top venues across London and the South East, such as The Waldorf Hotel, The Templeton in Roehampton, The Royal Opera House foyer in Covent Garden, Institute of Directors in Pall Mall, Hampton Court House, Imperial Hotel in Russel Square, Monkey Island in Bray-on-Thames and many others.
He has also been hired regularly for the world famous clown Chris Lynam and his Popcorn Club crew.
Since March 2012, Alex has been playing every week at Shezan Restaurant in Knightsbridge, being responsible for hiring another musician as a jazz duo, usually a singer, double bass player or saxophonist.
When hiring a pianist, you can expect him to play a maximum of four 'sets' - that is 45 minutes of playing followed by a 15 minute break. However, if you only need one hour, or you need piano music to start and finish at specific times, then of course, Alex can be flexible.
If there is no piano at the venue, Alex can bring his keyboard, and if necessary, an amplifier to the venue. However, if you have a large enough budget, it can be arranged for a piano to be hired for the event.
Alex is based in London, UK but is prepared to travel outside of London as long as transport is covered in the costs, and also accommodation, if necessary.
Alex can also be seen playing at the Belvedere Restaurant in Holland Park. Get in touch to find out when he'll be there next.
