Alberto Ballico

Operations Manager

Alberto Ballico is an Italian ex-professional footballer turned singer/song writer and pianist. He joined Club Europe in 2010 and works as an Operations Manager arranging music tours for schools in different European countries.

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.  At age 19 Alberto’s generous parents bought him a very fine black upright piano, on which he began to explore song writing. A couple of years later in February 1998, full of determination and self-belief, Alberto decided to emigrate to London to further familiarise himself with the English Language and broaden his horizons.

In London he continued his music studies and improved his musicianship skills by taking further music courses, including studying for a BA in Music. He played and sang in different cover bands but currently focusing on solo projects .

Alberto is a very open-minded, positive and enthusiastic individual, who is eager to share his energy and thoughts through music with the current generation.

Alberto Ballico è un calciatore ex professionista italiano diventato cantante / autore e pianista. È entrato a far parte di Club Europe nel 2010 e lavora come responsabile delle operazioni organizzando tour musicali per scuole in diversi paesi europei.

Ha scoperto il suo talento musicale alla tenera età di 10 anni, quando ha iniziato a suonare il corno francese nella sua brass band locale. Fu anche durante questo periodo che iniziò i suoi studi rudimentali in teoria musicale. All'età di 19 anni, i genitori generosi di Alberto gli hanno comprato un pianoforte nero molto bello, sul quale ha iniziato a esplorare la scrittura di canzoni. Un paio di anni dopo, nel febbraio del 1998, pieno di determinazione e autocompiacimento, Alberto decise di emigrare a Londra per familiarizzarsi ulteriormente con la lingua inglese e allargare i suoi orizzonti.

A Londra ha continuato i suoi studi musicali e migliorato le sue capacità di musicista prendendo ulteriori corsi di musica, incluso lo studio per un BA in musica. Ha suonato e cantato in diverse cover bands ma attualmente si sta concentrando nei suoi progetti da solista.

Alberto è un individuo molto aperto, positivo ed entusiasta, che è desideroso di condividere la sua energia e i suoi pensieri attraverso la musica con la generazione attuale.
