About Alex
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 participati
on 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 recently moved back to the Boston area to begin my MFA in Theatre Education at Boston University in the fall. I also have 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 performing in Tony Award Winning director Darko Tresnjak's production of "Romeo & Juliet" at Hartford Stage. I will be performing in Jim Petosa's production of "Good" at New Repertory Theatre in October 2016.

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.

Thanks!

About Peter
I am a student of various great drum teachers from many backgrounds. Experienced players enjoy jamming with me, but I have been told that I am especially gifted at helping beginners feel comfortable f
inding rhythms and sounds out of any instrument, including the human body. Rhythmic breathing is made simple and encouraged from the start. Tones and drum patterns can be explained verbally or written mathematically. Students remember the patterns forever, as well as gaining comfort in playing with other drummers or instruments. Odd time signatures or complicated songs can be tackled and easily learned. Use any drum or percussion instrument you have! Recordings are encouraged if you like!

Peter grew up in Chicago, raised to love soulful music. A graduate of Northwestern University's Performance Studies program with a focus on Theatre and Media Arts, Public Speaking, and Ethnology. Designing percussion for stage and dance lead to studies and teaching of North and West African, Middle Eastern drum, Caribbean/South American and Asian drum and percussion rhythms. First hand experience has been gained by living in Morocco and South Korea for nearly a year each, studying and documenting folk music.

Bryan has been great to work with. He has a lot of patience, which is important for someone like me who has a very limited musical background. He is clearly well educated in singing and is able to impart his knowledge to his students. I believe that anyone who takes lessons with him has the potential to greatly improve.
