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!
