Born in December 13th !1978 in Ruda Śląska, South of Poland, Aleksander was brought up in a family with strong musical roots. His own musical talent was shown for the first time when he was four, when Aleksander played a few lines from Mozart’s Sonate C-Dur (No.15 K.545), a work he’d just heard. Being encouraged by his parents Aleksander started practicing playing the piano with his father, a music teacher.

Aleksander continued his musical education at many high-profile schools. He took part in many recitals and contests. Soon his talent was appriciated by Ministry of Art and Culture in Poland.

He graduated from the Music Academy in Łódź, Poland with a Masters degree.

In 2006 he left Poland for Scotland. For the first few months he was living on different part-time jobs, then in 2007 his musical talent was discovered at Glasgow Univerity, where at that time Aleksander was working as a cleaner.
The story quickly became famous in the world’s media. His story has been translated into 30 languages
