I have been both a performer and dedicated teacher in the NYC and NJ area for over 14 years. I began playing music at the age of 8 years old, studying classical piano until I was 13. From there, I picked up guitar and started to immerse myself with rock, folk, classical, and jazz music. I eventually attended William Patterson University where I earned a BA in Jazz Performance, and then decided to move to NYC and pursue my career as a performer and educator. Upon moving to the city, I attended the American Institute of Guitar where I studied classical guitar for 5 years with world renowned guitarist Yasha Koffman.
Currently, I am teaching and performing in the greater NJ and NYC areas, and has performed with notable figures such as Steve LaSpina, James Williams, Tyshawn Sorey, and Yasha Koffman.

I grew up in a musical home, my father was a rock and roll and soul session drummer throughout the '60's and '70's in New York. I picked up the guitar at 11 years old and started taking lessons. After studying classical and jazz throughout high school I attended William Paterson University from 1994 - 1997, majoring in Music Education and studying with jazz guitar guru Vic Juris and classical guitarist Rich Jacobowski.
In 1997, I moved to Brooklyn and cut my teeth in the NYC R&B and rock club scene playing in the band Sole Pocket, and with various jazz combos at many other clubs including the Blue Note and the Knitting Factory. In 2003 I returned to college at CCNY (city college of New York), majoring in Jazz Performance and studying with Ornette Coleman alum, Kenny Wessel. I also formed my Hip Hop band, Spokinn Movement, and started my long standing weekly Hip Hop event, Freestyle Mondays (still running after 8 years!) in the East Village. Freestyle Mondays has attracted some of the best musicians in NYC and the world to sit in or just hang out, including Tarus Mateen, Marcus Miller (Miles Davis bassist), Ari Hoenig, Kurt Rosenwinkle, Tim Motzer, Adam Deitch and countless others. In the summer of 2005, I recorded for a couple of months with Lauryn Hill. I then spent 3 months playing in China and Hong Kong as well as several tours of the UK and Europe with Spokinn Movement.
Most recently I have been a sub guitarist for the Tony award (best score, best orchestration 2008) and Pulitzer prize winning musical Next To Normal, as well as first guitar at the 2010 Williamstown Theater Festival Production of critically acclaimed musical "The Last Goodbye" which features the music of Jeff Buckley (the first project licensed by his estate since his untimely passing in 1997).

Born in Curacao, Alejandro C. began studying the guitar at age twelve, influenced by his mother who also played. He later moved to the United States to attend the Peabody Conservatory of Music and Manhattan School of Music where he studied with David Leisner.
Alejandro aims to provide his students with a solid musical and technical foundation from the beginning of their studies. "I believe in the power of observation and that the teacher should learn as much as the student. I have particular ideas about technique and musicality that I like to emphasize but I am not rigid in my approach. Students have different skills. The best teachers are those that can pinpoint what their student's particular strengths and weaknesses are." Although classically trained, Alejandro will work with students on classical, folk, or rock music, depending on their preference.
Alejandro's students range in age from four to adult. "With students under six I start by teaching them about the instrument and then gradually introduce different musical and technical skills." Alejandro works with adult students to create a path of study that matches their musical tastes. "Depending on their skill level, I teach adults what they are interested in learning."
Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Mozart and Schumann are among Alejandro's favorite composers. He frequently performs as a solo artist and in chamber ensemble but prefers solo playing simply because "the most exciting repertoire for the guitar is written for the instrument alone." Alejandro cites his teacher David Leisner as one of his major influences although "growing up Andres Segovia was my idol." In addition to performing and teaching, Alejandro enjoys cooking and reading.
