Teaching since:
2015

I am currently a student at the Juilliard School in New York. I began to play the cello at the age of 6. I have attended Summer programs such as Kneisel Chamber Music Festival, Heifetz International Music Institute, and the Meadowmount School of Music. Before college, I studied with Hans Jørgen Jensen, a professor at Northwestern University, and currently, I am studying with Natasha Brofsky.

I have taught in settings such as private lessons, cello sectionals, and public outreach classes. I am experienced with Suzuki and more advanced level as well. I value the personal interaction between me and the student extremely rewarding. Since I am a student myself, I can help you find different ways of practicing that works for you and can help you learn how to navigate your way around the cello efficiently.

In the end, I believe that telling your own story is one of the most valuable aspects of music, and I am excited to help you to find your own way of telling your story with the cello.

She helped my 12 year old daughter prepare the Saint Saens Cello concerto (1st movement) for a small performance. My daughter played more spiritedly after her session with Alex. She was especially helpful for a specific bow technique.
