Hello and welcome to my profile!
My name is Alex and I look forward to teaching you!
My experience with teaching includes private teaching at Yale University and Stony Brook University where I taught undergraduate voice lessons in all different kinds of repertoire: a capella, musical theater, opera, jazz, etc.
I teach students of all ages, levels, and musical backgrounds, so if music and singing is completely new to you, no worries!
In our first lesson together we will go over your singing goals and aspirations as well as what kind of music you want to sing. Are you just looking to become a better karaoke singer? Do you have serious Broadway ambitions? Are you just curious about your talent for singing? Whatever your goals and aspirations are, I'll tailor the lessons to your needs and wants so that you can get the very most out of our time together.
In our lessons we'll cover the basics of breathing, support, phonation, and placement. You can expect an increase in range, power, and vocal control, and correct any intonation issues. We'll also discuss stylistic issues and what songs/pieces best suit your voice.
Most of all we will have fun throughout the entire process!
If you have any questions feel free to message me.

Alexander is a graduate of the Yale School of Music, where he earned both a Master’s degree in Music and an Artist Diploma as well as being awarded the David L. Kasdon Memorial Prize, for the most outstanding singer in the School of Music. Alexander earned his Bachelor’s degree in Music from Mannes College of Music.
"Moreover, my attention was riveted by the young bass Alexander H...when he sang it, the foundations of the Warsaw Philharmonic trembled. It was truly an exceptional voice!"
-Wielkanocny Festival LvB Czasopismo
"Alexander H brought so much charm to Leporello that at times he nearly stole the show."
"The best sung was the King's plea to God for Iolanta's healing in the strong bass-baritone of Alexander H."
"Bass Alexander H commands the stage."
-The Day Connecticut
"Alexander’s portrayal of the Count...was memorable. His resonant voice and litany of curses set up the final scene and marked the kind of pace and flow and continuity that made this production come alive."

Best teacher ever!
Alex is excellent with my 7 year old daughter!! I highly recommend him!
I took lessons with Alex for two years during my undergrad and he was the best!
I was in an a capella group and looking to improve my singing and he did just that.
He has a great ear for voice and fixed a lot of my problems in just a few lessons.
He's also really friendly and made the lessons casual and fun.
I totally recommend him!
Alex is a wonderful teacher and has been so supportive of my daughter's passion for singing. Alex is a great singer himself and even though he sings mostly opera he knows all the ins and outs of broadway as well. My daughter loves taking lessons with him and she's improved tremendously over the past year. With his help she earned the lead role in her school production of The Sound of Music!+ Read More
Alex has been very helpful in our lessons together. When we first met, we sat down and talked about what I was looking to achieve and what my goals were before starting. We started with the fundamentals to find out my baseline and the lessons have been very well paced and fun. I would recommend Alex to anyone.
My lessons were held at Alex's location because I did not have a piano or the privacy to do the lessons for an hour. We were in a spacious room with a grand piano each time.
