Hey there! I’m Alex. I hail from somewhere in the general area of Toronto, Canada. A university student day and night, I spend my spare time keeping my creative instincts in practice.
I have been playing the piano since 1995. Growing up with little else than classical music trained me well in expressions. Added with the ease of sight-reading, I often find myself diving into a new piece at the expense of my fingers, purely for the sake of good music. My regular repertoire consists of Beethoven, Grieg and Rachmaninov. With a lifelong passion for music that paints vivid pictures in my mind, I also spend a lot of time with arrangements of epic orchestral works. Despite being classically-trained, I have enough up my sleeves to drive a party wild at a piano bar. Apart from the piano, I have also fooled around at times with the oboe, French horn, accordion and pennywhistle. As of summer 2013, I make up the entire French horn section in the school pep band.
I have been making piano arrangements since 2002. With film soundtrack as my focus, I work mostly with classical instrumentation, aiming to supply intermediate-level piano players with scores richer than the often oversimplified official ones.
