Alexander J. Chadwell is a graduate of West Chester University and Mannes School of Music. He is a Harrisburg, Pennsylvania-born and raised, New York City-based composer of post-genre music. Exposed to a vast array musical styles from a young age, his music is incapable of being categorized into traditional genre boundaries. He often works at the intersection of technology and acoustic instruments.
A firm believer in the power and joy of music, Chadwell is an active teaching artist in New York City schools. He's worked with organizations such as Brooklyn Arts Council, St. Nicks Alliance, the New York Philharmonic's Composer's Bridge program, Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, and the Center for Arts Education.
"My own amazing teachers have shaped me into the teacher I am; one who teaches with long term goals and anticipated outcomes in mind, a teacher who can work with students of various backgrounds and learning abilities; ultimately a teacher who hasn’t forgotten how to learn. I believe wholly in the power of music as a tool for education and freedom alike. The world is changed by people who can feel and communicate authentically." – Alex
