I am a cello teacher and performer with 10 years of teaching experience. This is what I do full time, and I love it! I enjoy working with children, adults, and groups of all ages and levels of experience.

I am a classically trained cellist and received my Bachelor's in Music, Cello Performance from Sacramento State University, and my Master's in Music, Cello Performance from Florida State University.

I play in weddings, living rooms, fancy events, and various orchestras. I've held section and principal roles in the Tallahassee Symphony, Townsend Opera, Pacific Chamber Orchestra, and North State Symphony.

Reach out if you are interested in beginning or continuing your studies in cello!

In view of the Coronavirus lockdown, we had to resort to the online method of teaching. I believe it has been working fine. Alex is easy to work with, and I'm enjoying learning the cello. Thanks

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.
