Could this be you?

Alexander Jeantou is a tubist from Melbourne, Australia, but his musical passion began at Christian College Geelong, in Drysdale. Teachers Andrew Dunlop, Stewart Armitage and Paul Gunning nurtured his musical interest through concert bands and chamber music as a tubist, and big-bands as a tenor and bass trombonist. As a soloist, he has had success in various Victorian competitions, as well as winning first prize in the regional division of the Australian Youth Classical Music Competition in 2014.

In 2020, Alexander completed a Bachelor of Music with first class honours from The University of Melbourne under the tutelage of Timothy Buzbee. Here he received the 2016 Bachelor of Music Scholarship, Donald William Thornton Bequest, and Frank Barzyk brass award.

A keen chamber musician, Alexander is tubist in the Australian Tuba Quartet and Maverick Brass Quintet. Maverick received the Athenaeum prize, University of Melbourne chamber music competition first prize, and third prize at the 2019 Jeju International Brass Quintet competition. They were privileged fellows at Yale’s 2017 and 2018 Norfolk Chamber Music Festivals in Norfolk, Connecticut. Since 2021, Alexander has played in the Auckland Philharmonia Principal Brass Quintet, who deliver fun and dynamic concerts to schools and communities around greater Tāmaki Makarau.

In orchestras, Alexander has played regularly with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Victoria, New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, and Victorian Opera. Alexander has been Acting Principal Tuba of the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra since 2021.
