- Teaches students:
- Ages 5 to 18 and special needs
- Teaching since:
Hello! My name is Alex Rhoads and I have been teaching piano and guitar for over 12 years. I graduated from George Mason University with a Master's in Education, and have taught special education in the classroom for 5 years. I recently made the decision to pursue my passion--music--as a full time profession.
In addition to teaching, I play both solo and with a band at many local festivals, restaurants and coffeehouses, and am a regular musician at my church. I am an award winning songwriter and recording artist and have released two original albums in 2007 and 2016, one of which can be found on iTunes.
My lessons combine theory concepts with a variety of music genres such as rock, pop, and classical that will make your child want to practice. My main goal in teaching is to share my love of music with students and inspire them to be as excited about music as I am.
I am currently taking beginner and intermediate students ages 5-18 for piano and 7-18 for guitar. I look forward to getting to know you and your child and beginning our musical journey together!
Adapting curriculum to student needs, regular parent contact about student progress and behavior. Taught at the high school and elementary levels.
