I believe that music can be an amazing outlet for everyone, and also a great confidence builder. Everyone learns at different rates and in different ways, and I try to teach in the way that best fits that individual. My key teaching strategies are patience, communication, and fun. The best way to learn is to play the music you love, and discover a passion for playing. Learning to create and appreciate music stimulates the mind and can allow you to see the world in brand new ways.

About Alex W.

Hey! My name’s Alex. I’ve been playing guitar for the past 14 years and teaching for the past 5. When I started I was all about playing hard and classic rock, but as I got older I started to become interested in a variety of different styles of music such as classical, blues, Jazz and so on. I earned a degree in Music Performance from Guilford college, with a minor in Women and Gender Studies. There I focused my studies on classical guitar.

I’ve taught at several music programs and music camps over the years, including B Natural Academy of Music and the Arts, and Girls Rock camp in Durham, and at Music and Arts. I have also worked as an intern for NC Folk Festival in Greensboro NC, where I helped organize and set up performances, Guitar Center, where I repaired guitars, and Roscoe Guitars, where I built bass guitars.
