Beaconhills’ piano and keyboard students are lucky to have a teacher as accomplished as Alex Waite.
A passionate chamber musician, Alex has performed in Europe, Asia and across Australia and taken part in festivals such as Shanghai New Music Week, the Metropolis New Music Festival and Melbourne Festival. He has collaborated with artists such as Silvia Carredu (principal flute of Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra), Peter Hill and Steve Davislim. Recently, Alexdid a residency at the Center for 21st Century Music in Buffalo, New York.
Alex grew up in Gippsland and completed a Bachelor of Music (performance) with First Class Honours at the Sydney Conservatorium. In 2016, he moved to Melbourne to study with Timothy Young at the National Academic of Music, where he completed three years of the Professional Performance Program.
He lists the big composers like Beethoven and Bach as his inspirations, but also enjoys the more contemporary work of György Ligeti and Liza Lim.
Alex finds teaching inspiring, and says it complements his performance work: “The whole process of discovering new music and the exploration of ideas is similar between teaching and performing.”
This week he is in Taiwan to play at the National Concert Hall, as pianist with the ELISION ensemble.
