My name is Alec, and I am from sunny and crazy Las Vegas, NV. I have been playing drums since almost eight years old and have played a lot of music. I have performed in rock bands, punk bands, worship bands, drumline, percussion ensembles, orchestras, jazz ensembles, and cover bands. I am a current college student in Phoenix, so I understand how hard it is to learn something. That is why I love to keep an emphasis on helping you, my future student, discover what excites you to learn drums in the first place. Although I learned in a classical setting, this does not mean I'm going to make you play Thelonious Monk and Coltrane (unless that's your thing). While I love jazz and classical, what ultimately got me into drums was wanting to play Metallica and Dr. Dre. Playing the music I wanted to play helped me become the musician I am today. So if you want to learn how to play U2, Alicia Keys, Keith Urban, Charlie Parker, Dave Matthews, Meshuggah, Kendrick Lamar, Led Zeppelin, or whatever it is you want to learn, I'm going to do my best to help you play what you want to play.+ Read More
I play for three different bands at North Phoenix. You can see me playing there twice on Wednesday Nights and on Sunday Mornings periodically at the South Campus!
Alec was great with my 10 year old, and even helped me finish setting up the drum set. My son is VERY excited to continue lessons and has already been practicing a lot, and actually sounds pretty good!
It’s been awhile since I’ve taken a lesson and was apprehensive at first, but I had such a great time learning from Alec during my online lesson. He was great at explaining and showing me everything. He was thoughtful, kind, helpful and I could tell he was genuinely interested in me learning.+ Read More
I really enjoyed my drum lesson with Alec not only because I feel like I learned a lot during our lesson but because he is incredibly easy to talk to/feel comfortable with and has a great sense of humor which to me, makes learning from someone so much easier. Thanks Alec!+ Read More
Alec was fantastic! He was excited just as excited to teach me as I am to learn, not to mention extremely patient. I was nervous about taking my first online lesson since I usually do in-person lessons, however I feel as though I learned just as much as if we would have been face to face.+ Read More
I decided to start learning drums at 17. Although I was new and obviously had a ton to learn, Alec was incredibly understanding and patient. He always made me feel comfortable and confident in myself. Even via our online lessons, I felt totally at ease. He helped me so much!+ Read More
Alec is extremely knowledgable and attentive. He helped me so much with learning/furthering my skills in drumming. I'm currently doing better than I ever thought I could! He's awesome, I highly recommend booking Alec as your drum instructor.
