Overview

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from internationally recognized Baldwin-Wallace College. I have been playing and touring professionally for 9 years now with a band called Ward 9, and 4 years with a band called Dan Miraldi & The Albino Winos. I currently produce and run my own recording studio, and offer lessons as well. I am certified to teach all ages, any instrument, but focus mainly on bass, guitar, piano and vocals.

*** Lesson Details ***
When taking lessons with me, students can expect to move just a little faster than their perceived pace. I say this because students feel like they can accomplish A, but I know they are capable of more! They can expect to be held accountable to correct technique and gain a fundamental base of music theory as well. If they put in the practice time, they can expect to achieve much success with me.

*** Studio Equipment ***
studio set up in attic seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
I am well-versed in Kodaly, Orff, and Dalcroze methodologies. I can teach classical or modern voice, and most styles of guitar.

What a great experience!!! I'm a mid-thirties male with zero performance background of any kind. I can't say enough about my experience. Alex is full of information and he's able to explain the fundamentals in an easy to understand way. I was nervous going into the session, I've never sang in front of anyone, by the time the session ended I was ready for my next one. I would highly recommend Alex to anyone looking for music lessons. I couldn't imagine a better first experience.

What a fantastic find! Alex has been instructing my 2 sons (middle school and high school age) for the past year in our home once a week. We divided the hour lesson to cover bass guitar for one and guitar for the other. I can't say enough about Alex. He is professional, knowledgeable, friendly and has really pushed the boys to a new skill level. His academic and performance background enhance what he brings to each lesson, not to mention the fact that he's a genuinely nice guy and very flexible in working around our family's hectic schedule. The boys look forward to each lesson and I'm impressed with the advancement in their guitar playing. I highly recommend Alex!

Alex is an amazing person and an awesome singing coach. I came to him with absolutely no experience at all had a wonderful time learning the basics and experimenting in the studio for the first time. He is very easy going and made me feel comfortable. Without Alex's help I wouldn't have been able to come out of my shell enough to continue my lessons.

I definitely recommend Alex if you are in the Cleveland are and are looking for a great singing coach!

These lessons are better, and more informative than I ever thought they could be.

I started with instructor Alex on Sunday December 23, 2012. I am learning and absorbing a great deal. In just three lessons I am up to g- with a two octave voice. Instructor Alex knows that I want a rock music label, and what I am being taught with the two songs we are working on-will allow me to apply this voice and sing any song across the board!
