Music is built upon very distinct principles and understanding the way it works can help you compose your own, play your instrument of choice better, and even enjoy the music you already listen to more. Studying music theory is a very good way to dive deeper into understanding why music works the way it does.
I have studied music for over a decade. I've played piano for 12 years and developed perfect pitch, music reading and a thorough knowledge of theory from playing it. I have played the trumpet for almost as long and played lead trumpet in jazz band and the wind ensemble. I also have composed music for these groups as well as piano and arranged and transcribed music in various circumstances. I have taken college-level courses in music composition, music theory and music history/traditions.
I work with the student towards individual goals that best suit your purpose in studying music theory. I can help you with basic theory, composition, notation, staff reading, chord progressions, scales, key signatures, and everything else relating to music.
Shoot me a message with your goals and let's tailor a path to best help you accomplish them!

Teaching is what I do! I have TAed multiple classes and taught dozens of students. I teach piano and other music concepts, as well as STEM fields in school. I only teach concepts that I'm completely fluent in, however, so you always get the absolute best instruction possible!
I have been playing piano for over 12 years. I retrained from scratch in the Taubman Technique a few years ago and play with ease and effortless musicality! I have taught tons of students how to play the instrument, incorporating these concepts into their playing as well.
I also tutor in STEM topics, including all math, physics, chemistry, and others. I have tutored over 2 dozen students and helped many achieve great results. I have a Master's degree in applied physics, graduated Magna cum Laude, and am fully prepared to help you master your math/science classes!
Schedule a lesson with me! See yourself improve from someone who knows how people think and understands the topics enough to impart the same onto you!
I tutor math (algebra, geometry, trig, pre-calculus, calculus, linear algebra) and physics!
I have taught piano lessons for over 5 years now! I work with the student on polishing pieces, theory, practicing and other aspects of playing to help them further their piano playing.
Excellent first lesson. I am excited to work with Alex. He seems very knowledgeable and was able to show me some very good techniques that will immediately help me improve my playing.
Alex is fantastic. As a student, it's obvious he's had years of experience dealing with the material taught, and he explains problems in a thorough, well-contrived manner. Since beginning these sessions, my grades have risen greatly. I can't recommend them enough!+ Read More
Alex is a great teacher and very patient with kids. I would definitely recommend him.
I have been working with Alex for about a month and a half. He has been professional, organized, and strict. His techniques have improved my piano skills tremendously. My last piano teacher was not structured and as a result I did not learn anything from the lessons; she let me run the lessons and never taught me about music theory, hand techniques, or gave me homework. However, Alex gave me all of those things. He is patient and always wiling to share new information; he is not hesitant to answer to answer questions or critique your technique. If you're looking for someone who is serious, strict, and professional, I would strongly recommend Alex.+ Read More
Fantastic! Thank you Alex!
Alex was great, Andres understood everything and more, We are planing on keep Alex to review material for test with my son . Thanks Alex.
The first lesson went very well, thanks Alex!
My son really liked the classes and looking forward for the upcoming classes.
Alex is an amazing tutor. Working with him was a great experience. Alex identified and targeted my weaknesses in math; he reinforced whatever basics I was missing and then worked from there to polish my skills. He even worked on notes for me on his own time.
Alex was everything I needed in a tutor.
I have been communicating with Alex for about 8 months. First he was helping me with my Trigonometry class and now with Pre-Cal. I have zero issues with his performance. He is very professional and extremely knowledgeable about anything to do with Math. Keep in mind, he is good at both Math AND teaching/explaining it. I have every intention to use him for every Math class I have in my quest to obtain a degree in Com- Science. If he was living In Houston, he would probably be my wife's piano teacher.+ Read More
I got tutored in Algebra for about a week and he was very accommodating of the time and when I needed more or when I needed less he was very flexible. He's an excellent tutor, he won't cut corners and will make you actually think and solve the work instead of hustling you along to the next one. If you're looking for a math tutor then I don't know that you really could find one better.+ Read More
Alex has been a very helpful tutor. He is very patient and good at explaining confusing concepts. Would absolutely recommend!
Alex is a excellent instructor and comes highly recommended for dramatically improving my sons technique and well as keeping a young students interest positive and equipping him with the skills necessary to achieve his musical ambitions. His inhouse lessons are very accommodating and fees are very reasonable.+ Read More
