Alex Taylor

I began teaching in my third year of University in 1997 when I helped my student prepare for her successful audition into the Bachelor of Music course for the University of Southern Queensland. After graduating I moved to the UK and started teaching privately, as well as playing music for weddings, bands and theatre companies.

I moved back to Melbourne, Australia early 2020 and now teach students learning Classical, Folk and Jazz. During the Melbourne lockdown I completed a solo album of Eastern European folk songs mixed with electronic beats and bass for a new project called: ‘Vampire Pumpkins & Watermelons’ which I look forward to performing live. I also recently formed a gypsy jazz group called ‘Tiger Jam’ and a weddings/function band playing old style jazz ballads.

I am a very friendly and easy going person and have adopted a relaxed yet goal-oriented approach to teaching that can reach the highest standards. I believe the more comfortable a student is during a lesson the better the musical results!
