Alexander Ioakim


Born and raised in Adelaide, Australia, Alexander Ioakim was exposed to music from a young age through his grandpa and uncle. He went onto study a Bachelor of Music majoring in Jazz Performance – Saxophone at the Elder Conservatorium at the University of Adelaide graduating with First Class Honours in 2015.

Alex has studied in the USA under acclaimed musicians Ben Wendel, Walter Smith III and Will Vinson. Alex’s wide and varied freelance portfolio has seen him perform with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, musical theatre, cabaret and dance productions, as well as numerous jazz, funk, pop and soul bands across a variety of settings.

Alex has over 10 years private instrumental teaching experience, privately and at various schools (primary and secondary). His teaching style is calm, structured, and focused, allowing students to achieve their best in an enjoyable atmosphere. He is registered with the AMEB and has guided many students to successful results.

He currently spends his time between Vienna, Austria and Adelaide, Australia.



Within lessons, I strive to balance meaningful and practical musical development with technical improvement. Underlining everything though is to share in the satisfaction of music making. Enjoy those feel-good feelings and the stress release that is associated with playing an instrument.

Learning music is fun, but does require focus, patience, and commitment. The rewards are worth it.
For all ages and levels of experience.

Let’s focus on:
– A wide rang of styles, including classical, jazz, funk, pop, latin, + others
– Specific songs and pieces
-Transcription service available for music you don’t have
– Improvisation
– Rhythm
– Tone
– Technique
– Band repertoire
– Music theory
– Aural (listening) skills
– Any additional aspect, you name it, or let me guide you

Each lesson includes follow-up teacher’s notes and appropriate supplementary materials sent to you via email.
