Saxophonist, Writer, Growth Marketer

About Me

Texas native growing up near Denver, Colorado, Alejandro “Alex” Canales took up the saxophone at age 11. A few years later, he discovered jazz and joined the Colorado Conservatory for the Jazz Arts, attended the University of Denver and New Jersey City University where he studied with such greats as Jim Snidero, Joe Magnarelli and Pete McGuinness.

After his graduation, he traveled around the world playing in showbands on Royal Caribbean and Celebrity cruise ships where he would play production shows and back entertainers who specialized in Motown, Classical, R+B, and rock, while he doubled on flute and clarinet.

Four years later, he decided to study at the University of Nevada, Reno with Peter Epstein. As a graduate teaching assistant, he lectured and graded student papers while playing in school and local ensembles in Reno and near Lake Tahoe. He subbed for the Reno Jazz Orchestra on many occasions along with the Latin band No Comprende, while he participated in a local outreach program in which UNR jazz students would teach and perform at local Reno high schools.

When he moved to New Orleans in 2016, he discovered a secondary passion in writing, and immediately took remote work writing SEO articles for breweries, theaters and more. From 2017 to 2021, he wrote promotional content for a digital signage company and continues to write copy and content in myriad fields, from health and self development to music education, musicians and history.
