Our Student, Eliott Allemand is a seventeen-year-old saxophone player.
Five years ago he had his first saxophone lesson at the Lakes Community Music School. He worked hard and spent hundreds of hours developing his technique, sound and improvisation.
At Wakatipu High School he joined the school jazz band as lead alto saxophone player and later joined the school’s jazz combo on tenor sax, winning best saxophone two years in a row at the Invercargill Jazz Festival.
Since then, Eliott has performed in New York, Hong Kong, France and Hawaii with major artists such as saxophonist Chris Bullock from Snarky Puppy, vocalist Sirintip, and trumpeter Jonathan Saraga.
He is currently working on an album and has many projects underway.
