Like Schumann, Tchaikovsy and Sibelius, Alex is a musician who studied law. Unfortunately for him, that's where the similarities end. But seriously folks....
Born in 1973, Alex began playing the piano at age 4 and studied for 15 years with
Yvonne Brain L.R.A.M., wife of the legendary French Horn player Dennis Brain and herself a pupil of Harold Craxton.
Educated at Oxford University, Alex maintained his musical career as a pianist, performer and arranger while also pursuing a professional career in law.
He has performed extensively around the UK as a soloist, with chamber groups and with orchestras and as an accompanist. He is also a keen stand-up comic and event host.
He talks with audiences during his concerts to explain pieces and their meaning while injecting everything with a healthy dose of humour.
You can see some playing and teaching on his YouTube Channel www.youtube.com/ajayaymusic
