Alex is an inspiring and fun teacher with a great way of explaining things. He is also a phenomenal performer if you ever have the chance to hear him.

Alex is a great saxophone instructor. He is friendly, extremely knowledgeable and experienced, and has a great way of making difficult concepts and ideas seem simple. I couldn't recommend him more!
