Singing Lecturer – Private Singing Tutor and Ensemble Singing
After studying Music Education at Aberdeen University, Alisdair joined us a full time music tutor. Originally from Falkirk, Alisdair’s career has had a massive wing span of opportunities and he’s very glad to be bringing these experiences to AAPA.
Alisdair studied voice under the guidance of John Dallas (Falkirk) and Kate Hughes (Aberdeen). Alisdair’s main specialty in singing is Musical Theatre where he has gained a Diploma from London College of Music. Alisdair has performed in many amateur productions in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire as well as performing with some big names in the industry. Alisdair’s singing career started when he sung in NYCOS from the age of 8, and has grown from strength to strength vocally performing backing vocals for west end and film stars such as ‘Adam Garcia’.
Although Alisdair specializes in Musical Theatre, like all our tutors he has a varied range and also is trained in many other styles and instruments. He also enjoys teaching Classical, Pop and Jazz styles to singers and likes to consider himself to be appreciative of all styles of music.
Alisdair has also had many opportunities teaching and taking on positions and is currently holding a position with Giz Giz Theatre Company. Alisdair has had many opportunities to hone is skills and enhance them, he is now fortunate enough to be the official accompanist for NYCOS Aberdeen branch, Choral Director for ‘Spectrum Singers’ (Kemnay), Co-Director for Chalmers Mackay Youth theatre productions and most recently was Musical director for ‘Ten Feet Tall’s’ Pantomime ‘Jack and The Beanstalk’ in the Arts Centre.
