Ashley Stewart (Cello)
Ashley Stewart is our cellist, and has led a musical life from a very young age. The Cello was his first instrument, and he fell in love with its sound immediately. Being one of the instruments closest to the human vocal range, the Cello has a very familiar and emotive sound palette, with its dark mellow tones, through to its higher resonant singing notes. Throughout school, Ashley played in many school and community ensembles, and was a founding member of the Queensland Philharmonia Orchestra. Ashley was also selected to play in the Griffith State Honours Ensembles in 2010 and 2011. Although the Cello is his main instrument, Ashley also plays the Piano, an especially useful instrument to be familiar with for composing. Ashley has completed AMEB studies up to the highest level (Grade 8).
Ashley is also an academic tutor at QUT and a PhD candidate. He specialises in Computer Science, including Artificial Intelligence, Computer Vision, and principles of programming.
