This was our first lesson and it went really well. Alexander is an excellent piano player and teacher. My son was very comfortable in Alexander's home setting and learned a lot.

My 6 year old granddaughter has been taking piano lessons from Alexander K. since for about 4 months now. I chose Alexander as a result of the number of years he has been teaching piano lessons to young kids. He is doing a great job teaching her. He is very patience with her inquisitive mind and leads her at her pace. She likes his teaching skills and has learned a lot in this short time. I am very impressed with the progress she has made. I plan to continue the lessons for as long as possible. Thanks Alexander for the great job you are doing with my granddaughter!

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.

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!

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.

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