Can you imagine being able to play the piano, even complex and virtuosic music, with ease and effortless musicality? Believe it or not, it is possible!
Playing the piano with good technique and understanding can produce the most amazing music without straining, pain, difficulty or struggling while playing; and yes, you can do it too! This is what I teach my students so they are able to enjoy their playing and not feel like they're not making progress or that they're just going through the motions. There is a way to play the piano that makes it efficient and enjoyable, and I incorporate these ideas directly into the pieces the student wants to work on. I work with classical and contemporary piano music as well as theory, composition and piano technique, all of which help make piano playing as excellent as it can be! Check out my videos (below) and YT channel to see effortless playing at work!
I will work with the student on how to practice the concepts needed for each piece and establish a broad practice schedule to bring the student to full mastery of them. During studying each piece, we'll also touch on the underlying music theory to help further understand the music and assist in future pieces, improvisation and composition. There is no limit to what you can achieve on this instrument and your goals will play into my teaching for you!
Be sure to send me your goals and any questions about playing with ease so we can be a good fit!

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.
Alex is extremely passionate when it comes to teaching piano. He breaks down music theory in a way that you can understand, allowing you to take that knowledge to learning pieces all by yourself.
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!Show 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.Show 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.Show 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.Show 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.Show More
