Alex went out of his way to make my mother’s birthday special with a very enjoyable and professional performance of music from the musicals, including pieces that I had requested. We both had a lovely afternoon and wish Alex every success in the future.

Alex was wonderful. He was friendly and engaging. He made my Mum feel special, he had prepared a really difficult piece of music which we had requested and played beautifully. It was a brilliant birthday surprise.

I really enjoyed Alex's performance and choice of music. I didn't know the Rachmaninoff Preludes and will now go and buy a recording so I can get to know them better. Thank you so much for the introduction. The concert made my birthday very special and Alex was not only an excellent pianist and performer but very pleasant to meet.

Alex was fantastic! He took the brief of fast and furious to heart and learned a new piece for us especially. His introductions to each piece of music we're informative and well appreciated. The whole session was a lot of fun and made us realise how much we had missed live music. Superb!

Monica Clark
All our family and friends enjoyed this festive recital. We enjoyed Alex's introductions to the pieces (very informative), and it was a real lift for us all after the disappointment of a christmas without our families. I particularly appreciated the way that Alex was in constant touch before the concert, for approval for individual items and for allowing me so much control over the recital list. I would wholeheartedly recommend him and his playing.

Alex made the event very personal by commenting to my mum on the information that I had provided. His selection of pieces was ideal, incorporating some requests and some seasonal music. I thoroughly recommend him for a special present or event.
