Alberto Ballico is an Italian ex-professional footballer turned singer/song writer and pianist.
He discovered his music talent at the tender age of 10, when he started playing the French Horn in his local brass band. It was also during this time that he started his rudimentary studies in music theory. Based in London since 1998, he continued here his music studies and improved his musicianship skills by taking further music courses, including studying for a BA in Music at Goldsmith University. He played and sang in different college\cover bands but only in the last years he has been focusing exclusively in his solo career as a musician .
Alberto is a very open-minded, positive and enthusiastic individual, who will entertaining you and your guests with his music and charm all night long with covers spanning 4 decades and some original songs!

Alberto is a wonderful pianist who helped me set the stage for a romantic engagement to my partner. He was very helpful right from the start to understand the request and make it a total surprise. The vintage street piano I chose for the event definitely was not in the best of state with a few rough edges which he gracefully worked around and even threw in an original song of his to further enhance the experience at that moment for us. I can wholeheartedly recommend Alberto as a professional and...

Alberto was friendly, personable, helpful and adaptable throughout the process from hiring to the event itself. He played the songs requested wonderfully and there were many songs, with a variety of styles, so he showed he is adaptable too! He has a nice way of being there and making you feel at ease, happy to be in the background as well as interact. This made for a great atmosphere and I would highly recommend him.
Alberto was fantastic. I wanted a specific song played at our event. He was more than happy to accommodate this and performed it perfectly. I would certainly recommend him. He was the complete professional and helped make our event a special one.
