About the In The Style series:
The In The Style series focus strictly on the playing style of the artist. These are not general "how to" lessons. The goal of these lessons is to give insight on a wide range of topics relevant to the musical style of the artist. Advanced students will be able to immediately absorb and work on many of the concepts covered in the lessons. Beginner and intermediate level students will benefit greatly from the transcriptions of the numerous video performances with close ups when relevant. Music is like a language, and it is best learnt by surrounding yourself with better musicians. The goal of the "In The Style Series" is to give you this access, as much as possible, in the comfort of your own home!
About Alexandre Cavalière:
Alexandre Cavalière was born in 1985 near Mons in Belgium. He was born into a musical family, surrounded by musical instruments. Even at this early age Alexandre begins to develop his sense of rhythm, playing the snare drum in his father's orchestra. At 8 he has already begun to master the piano, drums, and of course, the violin, but it is in this last instrument that Alexandre will best express his sense of rhythm, his qualities of improvisation, and his great musical sensitivity. Rocked by Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli's melodies, musical swing is obvious for Alexandre.
In March 1998, fate helps Alexandre along, placing Didier Lockwood and Babik Reinhardt in his path: " These two great musicians are in Brussels for the Django d'Or celebration while he is rehearsing for an evening at the Royal Hotel Windsor with his father, who directs the band Jazzy Strings. A few notes are enough for Didier Lockwood, Babik Reinhardt and Frank Hagège to detect the talent in the hands of the violinist. What a surprise they have, when, pushing the door of the club open, they discover a 12-year-old child holding the violin.! " Astonished at the amount of virtuosity in one so young, they decide to invite Alexandre to Django d' Or, Brussels, and then Paris, where success is immediate … It is the beginning of a beautiful adventure from which "L'ALBUM " is born.
This young violin virtuoso quickly fulfills his potential. While keeping up with his studies, Alexandre moves from television, to radio stations and concerts where his performances shine at various Festivals as Antibes- Juan-les-Pins, Marciac, Samois-sur-Seine, Liege, Liberchies, Gaûme, Maubeuge, the jazz marathon of Brussels, the Belgians Golden Django, French, and at the Eurojazz Awards... Moreover, he has won over his public with performances at the princess Grâce of Monaco theatre, at Michel Jonasz concert in Olympia, as guest of the National Orchestra at the "Great Place" in Brussels, the festival " Espoo Jazz " (Finland)… and finally, thanks to Dorado Schmitt, his performance of "première in New York, for the Django Reinhardt festival at BIRDLAND.
