Alex is a very relaxed, easy going, knowledgeable person who knows how to tailor his teaching to his students' needs and desires. Taking lessons with him is both fun and a great learning experience.

Alex is an incredibly talented player with an equal talent for teaching. I have played for more than decade and had leading instructors in school and Alex has completely taken my playing to another level. Best yet, he makes lessons super fun. He's kind, considerate, encouraging and reassuring. I cannot recommend him enough for anyone looking to begin to play, expand their play, or just keep in shape and have fun. He's the best.
