About Alex Skolnick

Alex Skolnick, who joined Testament at age 16 and is one of their original members, is also known for being a respected New York improviser of multiple styles. Alex had moved to New York and earned a BfA in Jazz from The New School, and studied with prestigious artists such as George Garzone, Cecil McBee and Reggie Workman. He has released several critically acclaimed albums with the Alex Skolnick Trio since then, and rejoined with Testament in 2005. However when not on tour with the thrash band, you would find Alex headlining many fancy jazz venues around the world, such as The Blue Note in Milka, or Agharta in Prague. In addition, he is also a “first call player for Jazz/Rock projects”. Appart from his jazz career, however, Alex is also the leader of the critically acclaimed world acoustic project, Planetary Coalition, which features various international artists. In 2016 he was invited to be a primary guest instructor at Joe Satriani’s annual G4 Experience, alongside Eric Johnson, Mike Keneally and Steve Vai, and was also the sole guitarist on faculty at Warwick Bass Camp. He has been invited to several academic events to give keynote addresses, as well as joining PhDs at the International Society for Metal Studies in Helsinki. In addition to that, he is also a writer and editor to UNBUILT, a biannual lifestyle and cultural magazine, and has also written for Guitar World, Guitar Player and other publications. Alex has his own line of ESP signature guitars and has found his own niche as a guitarist. “Though he’s pretty much a household name in heavy metal, Alex defies categorization by musical genre.” (Making Music, Jan 2015).
