I'm not a piano player, but my students love their lessons. I'm a musician and a teacher, and I've been trained on piano. I can help you with fingering, reading, and theory. I love to teach and play and will bring energy and excitement to each of our lessons. Where I really shine is in my understanding of theory and my ability to explain it. Do you want to know why a chord sounds a certain way in a song? I can tell you. Do you want to know what scale to play over an A 7 that resolves to a D minor in the key of C? I can lead you there. To learn more, just book a lesson and we'll be able to get right into it!
About Alexander A.

My name is Alex, and my passion is teaching music. I offer clients a unique learning experience with customized lesson plans and personalized attention to fit your exact goals and needs. These aren’t just words to me…they are a commitment I make to everyone that I have the pleasure of working with. Here’s who I am… I earned a Bachelor's of Music from Berklee College of Music where I studied Bass Performance and Composition. I have years of experience playing upright and electric bass in many styles such as rock, jazz, orchestral, and big band. I’ve studied a variety of instruments over the last 20 years including guitar, bass, drums, ukulele, and piano. Here’s what I can do for you… I will give you my full attention and unyielding patience with each and every lesson. Together we will explore the principals of music that will enable you to learn to play in any style you choose to study. Ultimately my job is not to teach you to play, but to show you how to teach yourself. I will arm you with a thorough understanding of technique and theory. I love working with kids and adults. I love brand new players with no experience as well as seasoned players who just want to fill in some gaps in their knowledge. Whatever your age, and wherever you’re at with your playing, I hope you will give me the chance to help you have more fun and confidence in music. Every player I work with gets access to a personal online Lesson Journal where you can see my notes from our lessons, do homework from your “Stuff to work on” lists, and access my entire digital library! Every lesson is designed just for you. Let’s get started… You can take lessons at my studio, in your home, or online via Skype. For lessons in my studio, I can provide instruments and amplifiers for both of us. There is ample seating for parents to sit in on lessons. Parking is available in the driveway. You’re going to love your lessons! -Alex

Great instructor ! He knows to shift focus towards what you need to work on. As soon as the instructions are given or the questions he asks you feel relief because the energy is going towards what you already feel you need to work on and not just moving on to the next lesson. The tailored lessons make for a low pressure learning environment to fit your needs. As long as your consistant with receiving his lessons you will get where you want to be with your talents and be jammin out soon.

At Berklee I majored in Film Scoring, which is writing musical scores for movies and TV.

I was surrounded by nothing but music for four years and departed Boston with a wealth of musical knowledge.
