Anthony Alexander

Anthony AlexanderAnthony Alexander is a Classical Pianist specializing in solo repertoire and also respected as a collaborative musician. Although Anthony primarily plays classical music, he is capable of playing and teaching all styles. In his lessons, he incorporates aural skills, ear training and technique early on as he believes this is fundamental to piano playing. Anthony began studying piano at age 11 at a local music school and also took up lessons in clarinet and flute. At age 16, he began studying with Piruz Bogossian, who taught Anthony the discipline necessary to be a classical pianist. At UMass Lowell, he has studied with Hey Rim Jeon (Berklee Alumnus) and Jacob Hiser (NEC Alumnus). He also studies remotely with Spanish concert pianist, Ignacio Almarche, who comes from a lineage of teachers that can be traced back to Arrau, Liszt, Czerny, and Beethoven.

Anthony is active as an organist in the Armenian Apostolic Church, an accompanist at UMass Lowell and fluent in the languages of English, Spanish, and Italian.
