Teaching since:


I'm keyboardist, performing artist, and songwriter, Alec S., and I can't wait to assist you in your musical endeavors!

A little about me:

Music has always been my biggest inspiration in life, and as a result, I've spent years honing my musical craft. In the process, I've acquired both an Associate's in Professional Music and a Bachelor's in Music and Marketing, all the while studying with piano performers and instructors from both the U.S. and across the world.

I've previously performed as both a classical and jazz pianist, and currently perform as a piano-based pop artist. This eclectic background and extensive knowledge of classical, jazz, and pop styles results in a highly unique skill-set, knowledge-base, and passion for music, and I bring these qualities to the table, to you, as an instructor.

Now, I'm guessing since you're here, that you, too, have a desire to create music. And since no two aspiring musicians' dreams are alike, you're looking to study with someone who will understand YOUR goals and desires in music making and you need someone well-versed, with experience in a wide variety of musical settings, to help get YOUR unique musical endeavors off on the perfect foot.

If I'm correct, or even close, then I think we're onto something here and I look forward to helping you fulfill your musical dreams.

See you soon!


PS: If we live in the same area, I'd be more than willing to teach you in your own home, but also look forward to teaching those excited to learn worldwide! I look forward to sharing my passion for music with you or your loved ones!

I had the pleasure of working with Alec in nearly a dozen different ensembles over the few years he studied at the college I was teaching at. He's a consummate professional who knows his stuff, is incredibly reliable and organized, has great passion for music, and has the pedagogical tools necessary to pass on these abilities and passions to others, and then some. I would highly recommend studying with Alec. He's an excellent musician.

Alec is a kind, considerate listener, with a thirst for growth that permeates into all of his relationships, and is one of the most accountable musicians I've had the pleasure of working with.
