Aidan Boase was born in Perth, Western Australia. He completed a Bachelor of Music with honours at the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA). He had considerable success there studying with Ukranian pianist Anna Sleptsova, receiving the Cecilia Daff piano prize and winning the Warana Concerto Competition three times, enjoying performances with the university orchestra on each occasion. Following his undergraduate degree Aidan made his first move to Melbourne to train at the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM), learning with Timothy Young. Whilst here he was twice a finalist in the ANAM Concerto Competition and won first prize and the 3MBS Listeners' Choice award in the Chamber Music Competition.
Aidan returned to Perth for two years after his studies to become a member of the piano teaching staff at WAAPA, and to work as a freelance musician. Now based again in Melbourne he is in high demand as a collaborative artist, be it as chamber musician, duo partner or repetiteur. He is delighted to perform regularly with Melbourne Chamber Players and also works with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and Orchestra Victoria.
Aidan has performed at festivals in Europe and in the US. He was a 2015 fellow at the prestigious Norfolk Chamber Music Festival run by the Yale School of Music; and was a prize winner in the Virtuoso and Bel Canto Chamber Music Competition in Lucca, Italy.
As a concerto soloist Aidan has performed with orchestras around the country, including the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra and Orchestra Victoria.
