Our kids have loved their lessons with Dr Alex. He’s been working with them for two years now, and they have learned and grown so much. He has been extremely flexible and respectful over the past year with Covid guidelines - even hosting virtual lessons and recitals. He adjusts his teaching to each of our children’s different learning styles, makes it fun, and keeps them engaged. We highly recommend Dr. Alex and love working with him.
Mason D.
Alex is very patient and positive. Our nine year old grandson looks forward to the lessons and practices a lot during the week.

Dr. Kostritsa has been a wonderful teacher for my daughters. They have made excellent progress with him over the last two years. His flexibility in allowing my older daughter to select some of her own music really helped with motivation. It's also inspiring that he composes and performs his own music as well.

If you are a beginner, you can expect to first master technique of the instrument. Afterwards, you will learn how to master a beautiful tone and sound.

As an intermediate, you will learn how to approach things in a different way than normal. You will learn not only how to play something "correctly" but how to play musically, artistically and beautifully.

As an advanced student, you can expect to be challenged to think critically about technique, sound, phrasing, etc.

Virginia’s so patient, understanding and energetic! I never was embarrassed when I would make mistakes and our lessons were never stressful. Virginia has taught me so many techniques, strategies, and practicing methods that improved me as a musician and will continue to.

I am a lifelong musician who loves teaching. I have been teaching for a decade, and have played in many orchestras and chamber groups. I practice radical empathy in all things, but especially with my students. I believe kindness helps us grow; fostering a positive environment and relationship with my students is important to me, because it is important for their development as musicians. I believe in a holistic approach to teaching an instrument, nurturing and working on body, mind, and soul—a healthy and happy musician is a good musician! I encourage students to fall in love with what they do, and to advance at their own pace. I believe there is no such thing as bad musicians, just learners who are cultivating their art.

What is the Best Lighting for Photography?

The best photography lighting is based on several factors, and depends on what type of look you want when it comes to your photos. Natural lighting versus studio lighting brings about two different looks in your photography. We'll be discussing natural lighting, which does not need any equipment.
