Jazzworks is pleased to present our National Musicfest Scholarship recipient for 2015 – Alex Taylor.
Alex started playing drums when he was in grade 1. Alex has been playing in his school band since he was in grade 6 at Cedarview Middle School. This past year Alex played in 4 bands at John McCrae Secondary School as well as with the OCDSB All-Star Jazz Band, the Ottawa Junior Jazz Band and the Sons of Scotland Pipeband. Alex has played in summer camps at Carleton University and Humber College and has played at the Ottawa International Jazz Festival, Beaches Jazz Festival and The Rex Jazz Club in Toronto. He is currently a student of Jeff Asselin’s Drum Academy. When not playing drums, Alex enjoys sailing and skiing. He is excited to be participating in the JazzWorks Jazz Camp this summer.
We are looking forward to meeting Alex at Camp!
