Overview

I'm currently the principal flutist with the 116th Army Band of the Georgia National Guard, a position I've held since 2006. I am constantly traveling around the state and have traveled around the country performing as part of the army band as well as part of small and large flute ensembles. I have over 20 years of flute playing experience, 10 years of college level instruction, and over 15 years teaching experience. I received my BA in Music from Columbus State University, and I'm seeking my certification in the Suzuki Flute Method from East Tennessee State University.

I can be contacted at my email address (Alex_White532@hotmail.com) for any questions and more payment options.

Let's work together to take your flute playing to the next level!

I have worked professionally with Alex since 2006. In addition to being a very kind person, he is a superior flutist able to play anything he is given well. He lives to play and practice. He is also an excellent conductor, an entertaining vocalist, and drum major for the band. He is a deep thinker and will really help you find the techniques and skills that are inside of you. You won't be disappointed.

Alex White's ability to conduct a full band rehearsal matches that of most senior band directors. He can pull music out of us we didn't realize we had. He has a natural gift but doesn't take it for granted. He works hard to improve his skill every day.

His voice, like his flute, is a beautiful thing to hear too. Just sayin!
