I want to help you explore music on a deeper level rather than simply memorizing notes. We would analyze song forms, chord progressions, and develop a diverse repertoire in Jazz, Latin, Classical or Pop music. However, I do this with your interests in mind. Oftentimes, my students decide which songs they want to learn or even compose songs with my help. Depending on how far you want to take it, we can work on recording and producing the song on music production software like Logic or Ableton. You would see the entire process of starting a song all the way to releasing it on streaming platforms. If developing a solid understand of music sounds like something you want, shoot me a message and we can chat more!
About Alex A.

I am a Colombian-American Multi-Instrumentalist, Composer, and Music Producer currently based in LA. I hold a Music degree from UC San Diego where I studied Jazz piano and composition under the tutelage of 2-time Grammy award-winning producer, Kamau Kenyatta. Being born in Colombia allowed me to develop and eclectic music palate. This has enabled me to collaborate with Folk, R&B, Latin, Jazz, and Tango bands. I have performed, recorded, and arranged music for many ensembles, which has allowed me to hone my craft over the years. Passing on the knowledge that I have accumulated is among the most rewarding things I can think of. Seeing students master techniques and songs brings me a lot of joy. My students range from ages 6 to 72 and I take pride in my ability to adapt to the needs of each one of them, whether that means working on different musical styles or progressing at varying paces. I take this philosophy with me to the different settings where I teach including, 1 on 1 lessons, Middle and High School bands, and Church Praise Bands. Teaching is my passion and I look forward to helping you become a better musician!

My 6 year old grandson, Bruce, has been taking virtual lessons from Alex for almost a year. It has been a wonderful experience for Bruce. He knows how to interact with Bruce and often gives encouragement and advice with patience. It's amazing how much Bruce has learned in a short time. Not only Alex is a great teacher, he often takes the opportunity to introduce a special piece of music that ties in with Bruce's current interest. For example, Alex taught Bruce how to play the beginning piece to Hamilton after he found out Bruce had gone to see the play. We were all very surprised how well he played it. This piece of music has a special meaning for Bruce. It's things like this that make learning more fun. Thanks Alex for sharing your love of music with Bruce. This rewarding experience would last a lifetime. I highly recommend Alex to anyone who is interested in learning music.

We began virtual piano lessons with Alex in March 2020, having been in person for 3 years. I feared that my son would lose the engagement of having his instructor at his with tactile corrections. These online sessions were the silver lining of the lockdown in fact! Alex has a knack for challenging our son all the while being patient & encouraging. Our family watched him play & remarked that he seemed to enjoy his piano playing. I have the virtuoso Alex to thank for that.

We are so lucky to have had Alex as a piano teacher for our son for more than 3 years now. Alex has a unique way of teaching which helps to build genuine interest in kids to learn music and at the same time builds strong theoretical foundation and practical skills. Alex gave exposure to so may different genre of music that my son has a large repertoire of songs that he love to play and perform. He is very patient with our kid and nurtured his overall music Interest including composing and music production. I would highly recommend Alex to anyone who is interested in learning music.
