I have 15 years experience playing guitar and drums and love nothing more than to share my knowledge of music with students who are eager to learn. My passion for music developed at an early age and has only grown from there. I have had the privilege of learning from excellent and extremely talented teachers. I enjoy playing at local venues and watching my students joyfully succeed.

*** Lesson Details ***
Whether you have never picked up an instrument or if you just want to fine tune your musical ability, I will gladly meet you wherever you are in your musical journey. As patience is always an important aspect in learning a new instrument, it is also one of my strengths as I teach students the basics or the advanced techniques with guitar or drums. Learn at your own pace and learn to play any song you want!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Takamine ES45C Jasmine Cutaway Acoustic Electric Guitar, Deadwood Arch-top Electric Guitar, Fender Mustang I V.2 20-watt 1 x 8" DSP Combo Amplifier, Sonor Force 3005 Full Maple Kit.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Guitars, drums. I am willing to share my equipment if the student does not have their own.

*** Specialties ***
I like to use the Orff method for children, the Suzuki method to encourage and praise the student for their accomplishments, and the MMCP method to give the student the freedom to improvise, create, and investigate his/her own musical talents.

Alex is extremely patient with my son who is 9 years old. He makes it fun for him and uses music that my son loves. He took his time to ask what type of music he would like and is teaching him based on that. After only three lessons my son is really starting to pick up on basic cords. I would highly recommend Alex to anyone that is interested in learning guitar. My son really enjoys his time with him.
