About Me

Hello there! Thank you for checking out my page.

This is the first step in beginning or continuing a creative journey that will not only make you a better artist but a better person, as participation in any art will do. I am all about finding out how music and theatre and film and, really, any artistic medium can help us communicate better, unveil new perspectives, and foster a more open, generous, accepting, and passionate relationship with the world around us.

I've been an artist in many different capacities spanning many different mediums including theatre, film, and music as a director, actor, and writer. I received a Master's Degree in Theatre Arts from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and a Bachelor's of Science in Film and Television from Boston University. As a musician, I've played guitar, piano, mandolin, and sang in touring college bands, city church choirs, high school jazz bands and select choirs, and a plethora of school, community, and professional musical theatre productions. I've also taught guitar (privately and in groups) and led acting/text workshops locally and abroad. My most recent adventure was while I was abroad in Scotland. I wrote and directed a play, "Said the Wind", which was performed at The Arches, Glasgow, and was subsequently taken to the CrisisArt Festival at the Accademia dell'Arte in Arezzo Italy.

As a native of Doylestown, I'm happy to be back home for a while and am looking forward to teaching!

GUITAR LESSONS
I am taking students at any age experience level, from those who want to learn the fundamentals of music through the guitar, to those who are looking to develop their sense of play and experimentation to better write their own music. First, we'll get to know each other so I can get a sense of your goals, interests, and current abilities. Then, utilizing musical literacy, tablature, learning-by-ear, and improvisation, we'll develop your skills to the highest possible level. I do not specialize in any particular genre or style. Rather, I've learned to specialize in flexibility. The most important thing is to know your instrument inside and out and all that it can offer by way of creation. After that, it's simply about enjoying it.
**I currently do not have an extra guitar available so it is important to provide your own instrument. On that note, taking lessons is only part of the process. The other critical part is practice, so I encourage anyone who is interested in guitar lessons to buy one of your own in order to do so. A simple acoustic guitar like a Yamaha is perfect for your first guitar.

THEATRE AUDITION PREP
These lessons are suited to those who want to develop their ability to enter an audition room with confidence and charisma and get the job or role you've prepared for. The most important thing to remember about auditioning is that the people behind the table want you to be the right person for the job as much as you yourself want the job. These lessons will be most useful to those auditioning with a monologue or cold reading sides. I can also be of assistance with musical theatre audition songs. If you are not working towards a specific audition, we can work on broad spectrum auditioning and mock auditions. These lessons are available to any age and experience level.
**I can work with those who already have pieces in mind that they'd like to practice on as well as those who need help finding a monologue or a song.

If you'd like to BOOK AN APPOINTMENT please contact me via email at alex.schneps@gmail.com or call (215) 272-6549. Thanks!

About Me

I have a bachelor's degree in music from University of Miami with a minor in acting and have just finished my Master's degree in vocal performance from Texas Tech University. At Texas Tech I held my own private studio for two years. During that time I taught students of all levels in various styles ranging from classical to music theater, to rock and pop. I have helped students of advanced levels and also students who thought that they were tone deaf. I enjoy working with and getting to know all of my students. Teaching really is a great pleasure for me.

Lessons will start and end on time. Please call or text if you will be late. As students are often booked back to back, lateness will not be accommodated at the expense of other students.
Note: Assume your lesson will continue as scheduled, even if it falls on a minor holiday. I am happy to reschedule with sufficient notice.

Parking
Please park in the gravel parking lot in front of the house. Do not park in the paved parking lot, unless it is a weekend, as that is for the local businesses

Lesson Rates
$50.00 for one hour
$40.00 for 45 minutes

Studio Class
Every few months I will hold a Studio Class. Studio Class is a performance workshop for the singers of a teacher’s studio. Students sing for the class and receive feedback. It is an excellent opportunity to prepare for performances and auditions. There will a guest pianist, director, or singer to join me in running the class. It is held in my living room, and between 8- 10 students participate. Students are invited on a rotating basis. The fee for the class is $10.00.

Recitals
Recitals will take place in the beginning and the end of the year; one at Christmas time and one in late spring. All students are invited to perform. It is not required but highly recommended. Parents, family and friends are invited to recitals. They will be held in local venues around the Philadelphia area.

General
 I have a dog. She is Hypo-allergenic, 4 pounds full grown, and very friendly.

 If you arrive early and I am with another student, you may come in and sit in the living room.

 As singing is a physical activity, it is often beneficial to use hands-on techniques. I will always ask the student before physical contact and respect his/her comfort zone.

 Parents and/or guests are welcome to observe the lesson, just please let me know in advance.
