I have come from a background where music was an important part of my life - I went to a performing arts high school in NYC and learned a lot. However, within 2-3 lessons with Alex, he was able to reach out to me in ways that many other teachers in my past have not been able to do. He helped me “warm up” my vibrato, he changed my posture entirely, he makes me think of energy when I play and I see a drastic improvement in my sound.

Alex was always on top of the material and appeared very organized and collected when teaching. He was great in one on one situations with students and could always clarify or justify why we were doing things a specific way. Always tried to make what we learned applicable to performance as well.
