I am happy to introduce myself. My name is Alexander. I graduated from the Curtis Institute of music and was performing all over the world since then with major orchestras, festivals and have collaborated with many great artists.

I was very fortunate to study with many great clarinets from different schools and traditions. I very much look forward to sharing my experience with you and hope to hearing from you soon. I promise to inspire you to work hard and will help you in preparation for your high school, college, music festivals auditions and much more! Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.
