Hi there! My name is Alex and I am a full-time freelance musician living in Philadelphia. My primary focuses are jazz, rock and pop and I have been playing piano for 20 years. I graduated from Temple University in 2015 with a degree in jazz piano performance, and am hoping to help others gain a joy of music through the piano.
Lessons will be fun and informative, working on either jazz and/or basic piano proficiency (whichever is applicable). I've studied with fantastic pianists Tom Lawton and Bruce Barth in my time at Temple and want to pass on the knowledge to others and make music a fun learning experience!
*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are very flexible depending on what you want to learn! I can teach basic piano for beginners. I can also dive into specifics of jazz music for more advanced students, or even jazz arranging and composition!
*** Specialties ***
Basic Piano, Jazz Piano, Jazz Composition/Arranging, Popular Music, Classical Piano
Private piano lessons for children ages 5-13+.
