I am a cello performer and teacher based in the Bay Area. This is what I do full-time, and I love it! I received my Master's in Music, Cello Performance from Florida State University, and my Bachelor's in Music, Cello Performance from Sacramento State University.

I have been teaching students of all ages and levels of experience since 2009. I look forward to meeting you and helping you reach your goals in playing the cello!

Alex was very professional and connected very well with my 9 years old.

Alex is a great instructor. He is very direct, clear, pays close attention to all the parts of playing cello and tells you what is wrong with positive reinforcement. He, especially, pays attention to detail and is concerned on getting a good sound.
