Ok. I have actually been one Alex's instructors! Not trumpet but Choir. Yes the guy can sing too. More importantly, he is an awesome guy, genuine person, and terrific musician. I just wish he could have stayed in NC so I could have him in my orchestra. I was his orchestra conductor and choral director for many years. Some DC area students are going to be very fortunate to have him as an instructor.
You can tell I like the guy! If he was just a little bit older I'd be begging him to marry my daughter. How's that for a reference?
