Alex Akkerhuis grew up in a musical family. Both parents graduated in piano from the Royal Conservatory in The Hague.
His father, Gerard Akkerhuis was founder and conductor of the Residentie Bach Orchestra and Residentie Bach Choir for more than 30 years. His mother Margreeth has worked all her life as choir rehearsal director and piano teacher.
A difficult choice followed after high school. Studying piano at the Conservatory in The Hague or studying French and Dutch at the faculty of the VU. It became the latter. After graduating another choice was to be made. Being a teacher, or starting a career as a ballet pianist at the Nel Roosacademie (later the National Ballet Academy). Music won out in the end. His career flourished as a ballet pianist for the Dutch National Ballet Academy, Krisztina de Chatel, Scapino Ballet, the Dutch National Ballet, HJS and ADC since 1982.
He has worked with well-known ballet masters, such as Rudi van Dantzig, Toer van Schaik, Francis Sinceretti, Rob Stuyf, Fred Berlips, Esther Protzman, Grigori Tchitcherine, Piotr Nardelli, Karel Vandeweghe, Andrew Kelley, Eyla Jeschke, Erna Droog, Jeannette Vondersaar, Valerie Valentine, Jenny Veldhuis, Peter Silkin and others.
