I have played blues, hard rock, fingerpicking, folk, and jazz music on the guitar since 2006. I have played onstage in rock bands and jazz combos and received years of private instruction. I am a chronic improviser, a composer, a creative musician, and a music theory geek.

My enthusiasm for the guitar is related to its irreplaceable role in genres that are uniquely and beautifully American like blues, bluegrass, and rock 'n' roll.

I can teach you how to play the basics, how to solo, how to write a song, how to play jazz chords, how to play rock riffs, how to groove, how to fingerpick, or whatever you want to learn.

Check out my guitar lesson demo video on my profile to hear me play!

My goal as a teacher is to help you reach your musical goals! My lessons consist of scales, duets, and solo repertoire. Each lesson is different depending on the student I am working with, but the core of my teach is based around these 3 areas.

I cannot recommend lessons with Victor more highly! I am a new adult learner, and Victor had all the patience and encouragement in the world for me. He was flexible with my ever-changing work hours, and never showed a hint of frustration or impatience. He is knowledgable, easy to get along with, and a wonderful instructor! Highly, highly recommend!

Alex has inspired my son to love playing music for the rest of his life. I can't think of a more wonderful gift. His technique in teaching allowed my son to enjoy learning guitar by playing songs he wanted to play. This made him want to practice just for the fun of it! Alex taught my son from the time he was 9 years old until he was 15. The easy going, positive attitude Alex exudes encouraged my son along his journey and made a strong bond and connection between the two of them. I wholeheartedly encourage anyone who would like to learn to play guitar to sign up for lessons with Alex!

Alex is a superb teacher and is very patient and well schooled. I look forward to my lessons every Friday.

I'm very good with young students. Flute is very difficult for smaller, younger ones because of the instruments size. And it's difficult to even get a sound sometimes.

"I came to Alessia's lessons with little experience using proper vocal technique and admittedly as a voice student well outside the usual age range - which meant that we had to work on unlearning some long standing bad habits. Alessia has been extremely patient in reinforcing the elements of good vocal technique. At the same time, she is great at communicating what she wants to see me work on and how well I'm succeeding in those areas. And most importantly, I can hear the improvement in my singing! Highly recommend, especially for those interested in singing musical theater or classical pieces."
