ALEX GANDIONCO - SINGING, PIANO & KEYBOARD WELLINGTON MUSIC TEACHER
Alex is a piano and vocal tutor, currently completing her Bachelor's degree in classical voice performance at the New Zealand School of Music. Originally from the Philippines and having grown up in Auckland, Alex spent the last two years of high school studying in a specialist music programme at the Idyllwild Arts Academy in California, where she had the opportunity to experience the intensive music scene in the United States.
As a singer, Alex has been actively involved in both Auckland and Wellington, being a part of the St Patrick’s Cathedral choir and the Opera Factory in Auckland, and now a choral scholar at both Orpheus Choir of Wellington and Sacred Heart Cathedral. She is also proficient in piano, teaching it as well as singing for over 3 years - privately, but also through music schools like Encore and primary schools. Alex also has experience in being a teacher aide for students with special needs, and is interested in possibly pursuing the field of music therapy.
"She gives us good techniques to improve our vocal range as well as constructive critisism in helping to improve things we need to work on. She's also really nice!" - Abbey Taylor
"Alex taught her a lot about technique and range as well as how to use breath when singing. She wants to thank her for the lessons which she thoroughly enjoyed and will take what she was taught into her future singing. Thanks very much, Alex." - Margaret Murphy
