Born and raised in Adelaide, South Australia, Aiden received his Bachelor of Music from the Elder Conservatorium of Music at the University of Adelaide, graduating with first class honours under the tutelage of both Keith Crellin and Stephen King. In the summer of 2022, he moved to Germany and is currently undertaking a master’s degree with Alexander Zemtsov at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz in Cologne.
Since moving to Germany, he has worked with the Folkwang Kammerorchester Essen, participated in an academy with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, performed and had masterclasses with Máté Szücs as part of the Hellens Music Festival, UK, and has recently been awarded a scholarship by the Deutsche Kammerakademie Neuss am Rhein to perform on a regular basis during the 23/24 season.
He was also chosen to perform in Grafenegg, Lower Austria, as part of the 2023 Grafenegg Academy and has more recently taken part in the Thy Masterclass and Chamber Music Festival, Northern Denmark, where he performed chamber music alongside well known professors from both Belgium and Germany.
Aiden’s study in Germany is generously assisted by the Ian Potter Cultural Trust, the University of Adelaide, the PPCA Performers’ Trust Foundation, as well as the Government of South Australia through Carclew.
