About this Act

After studying classical guitar, piano, jazz guitar and composition at the world-renowned Chetham's School of Music for seven years, eighteen year old Alexandra Whittingham now studies at the Royal Academy of Music in London.
Having picked up the guitar when she was just five years old, Alexandra's father taught her the basics of the instrument before she went on to begin private lessons.

During her time at Chetham's, Alexandra had many opportunities to play with various ensembles, such as a string quartet, guitar duets and jazz groups, which resulted in her becoming a member of Wigan Youth Jazz Orchestra. With the orchestra came the opportunity to tour Germany and Czech Republic, where they sold out various venues within the two countries.
In her final year at the school, she also gained her LRSM (Licentiate of the Royal Schools of Music) second diploma in guitar performance.

Alexandra plays one of only three-hundred Antonio Sanchez 2500 guitars and is delighted to be endorsed by Aquila Strings, highly recommending their Perla range.
