He provided duos for Shezan Restaurant in Knightsbridge
, every Friday and Saturday for three and a half years. He is currently putting on duos every Thursday evening, 7-10pm at Four Sisters Townhouse

When hiring a pianist, you can expect him to play a maximum of four 'sets' - that is 45 minutes of playing followed by a 15 minute break. However, if you only need one hour, or you need piano music to start and finish at specific times, then of course, Alex can be flexible.
If there is no piano at the venue, Alex can bring his keyboard
, and if necessary, an amplifier to the venue. However, if you have a large enough budget, it can be arranged for a piano to be hired for the event
Alex is based in London, UK but is prepared to travel outside of London as long as transport is covered in the costs
, and also accommodation, if necessary.
