Hello there my name is Alexander. Thank for taking the time to read my bio. I have been playing the piano for over 35 years. I have been teaching piano for over 20 years. In addition to teaching piano I am elementary school music teacher for over 18 years. I currently teach students as young as 5 and as old as 65. Whether your a beginner or an experienced player I am passionate about teach music and help each develop a love of playing the piano. I have earned an Associate of Performing Arts in Piano from Nassau Community College, a Bachelors of Arts from Hofstra University and a Masters of Education-Music K-12 from Hofstra University. I am married to my lovely bride-Keyla for 15 years and I have two amazing children Ally and Matthew both of which take piano lessons from yours truly. I teach and play most styles of music and I am able to teach students how to read and play by ear. I would love to help you reach your musical goals.

Alexander is an exclent instructor and musician. He has the ability to make leaning the piano challanging yet fun. My 9yr old looks forward to his lesson every week and has thrived under Alexander's tutelage.

As an adult beginner, I cannot recommend Alex more highly. He is patient, instructive, and is ready to help through any challenges. I was very nervous to embark on learning the piano at 46, but it has been an amazing journey so far and I have learned so much in a relatively short amount of time, all thanks to Alex! No matter your skill level, I think Alex is a fantastic teacher who will help you reach your goals.

I have enjoyed piano lessons from Alexander so much! I love his teaching style, he makes it so easy and fun! He is very patient and works with my schedule! This is my first experience learning piano, I've been putting it off for 20 years, and I'm glad I found Alexander to be my piano instructor!

He's very experienced and patient, after only a few lessons I felt as though I had already learned so much.
