Ukrainian-born guitarist Aleksandr Tsiboulski began his guitar studies shortly after moving to Australia at the age of ten. Starting with Andras Tüske, he went on to study with Australia’s pre-eminent guitar teacher Timothy Kain at the Australian National University, and, as Fulbright Scholar, with Adam Holzman at the University of Texas at Austin. He has also studied with Angelo Gilardino, Carlo Barone, Ernesto Bitetti and David Leisner. He was three-time finalist at the Guitar Foundation of America International Concert Artist Competition, and has won first prizes at seven international guitar competitions, including the 2006 Tokyo International Guitar Competition, which led to an extensive Japan-wide tour. Based in Adelaide in Australia, he has performed worldwide as a soloist and as a chamber musician. He actively collaborates with vocalists on contemporary repertoire, and is currently pursuing a doctorate with research into the guitar works of Mexican composer Manuel María Ponce.
