Charlie Alley, Guitar, Ukulele

Teaching Artist 

Charlie Alley has devoted himself to learning and making music since an early age. At just 15 years old he made his professional debut as a jazz musician. His passion for music has taken him all over the world as a professional guitarist, composer and teaching artist. He has toured in Germany, the Netherlands, Canada, and across the United States, playing in venues large and small.

As a composer, his music stylings transcend genre, taking parts from Jazz, Blues, Folk and Rock. He has perfected the art of utilizing a digital loop station to create larger unique soundscapes with skills he’s gained from years of improv Jazz playing. His newest album, I’m Still Here, can be found on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, CD Baby, and more.

Charlie is passionate about sharing his love of music with the next generation of aspiring musicians – whether they be kids or adults! For the last six years Charlie has maintained a private teaching studio, sharing his wealth of knowledge and experience with students of all ages. In his teaching, Charlie emphasizes not only playing music off the sheet, but building skills to a level that allows students to be creative and truly express themselves musically.

You can find him performing around the Omaha and extended Midwest, and, of course, at SNJ Studio of Music where we are delighted to welcome him as a Teaching Artist.
