Primary Instrument: Trumpet

Born: January 22, 1985    

Trumpeter Alex Nguyen is a native of Savannah, Georgia. His lifelong fascination with music dates back to his early childhood, when his Godmother, a church organist, began giving him piano lessons. The pursuit continued when Alex took up the trumpet and then discovered jazz in high school. Now at the age of 21, Nguyen resides in Jacksonville, Florida where he is pursuing a degree at the University of North Florida jazz studies program, led by legendary jazz master Bunky Green.
