I am a long time teacher, and student of Music at San Jose State University. I want to help you become a better player, and a better musician! I will teach you theory, technique, how to learn your favorite songs by ear, and how to write your own! I want to be the teacher that I always wished I had when I was learning. Send me a message and let's get started!

About Alex L.

I was passionate about music when I was younger, but I never had the tools to get where I wanted. Music was always a mystery to me and I got stuck learning from tabs and not stepping out of my circle of knowledge. It wasn't until I pursued music seriously that my love for the art really took off. I suggest doing the same! Let me help you get there quicker!

I received my associates degree in music from Ohlone College in Fremont, CA, and my Bachelors in music from San Jose State University Spring of 2019. I have taught guitar, bass, piano, and composition to students from 8-80 over the past 13 years. I am excited to meet you and to help you succeed!

My first lesson with Alex couldn't have gone better! He was patient and thoughtful in explaining Music Theory / Guitar 101, I'm really excited to see what comes of my next lessons.

Alex has been teaching guitar to my 14 year old son since last summer and my son really enjoys his lessons. Alex is very patient and goes at my son's pace. He is prompt and flexible. I would highly recommend Alex!

Enthusiastic, knowledgeable, flexible, and fun. I'm an adult learner and intermediate musician and Alex provided me with exactly the kind of hands-on assistance I wanted. He really kick-started implementing music theory into my own playing.

Very patient and knowledgeable. I had never taken formal lessons before and didn't know what to expect, but he made me feel comfortable with my level of knowledge and quickly picked up on where I could use the most help.
