Lesson Details

Acoustic Guitar

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I am a classically trained multi instrumentalist and composer who happens to rock & roll. I have performed all over the world on cruise ships, and I have recently settled in Denver to focus on teaching and creating new music.

I received my formal education from the world famous Berklee College of Music, and I received my informal education in Spain studying the art of flamenco with the larger than life gypsies themselves.

My instruments-
Guitar (electric, acoustic, and nylon string)
Bass guitar
Piano/keyboard
Composition techniques for all of the above

Rock, Blues, Classical, Metal, Gypsy Jazz, Country, Flamenco, it is all music, and I go beyond the style to teach how to get to the MUSIC, the essence that makes each one unique.

Finding a teacher who has been down the path you are planning to go take can save you an enormous amount of time. I have been down many paths so far, and I specialize in finding the simplest route possible for each individual student with respect to their own musical goals and dreams.

Alexios worked beautifully with our 12 year old. He was kind and patient and very positive. It is easy to see that Alexios has vast experience with music. The student was anxious to get started at practice!

Great teacher for my boys. He goes at their pace and looks for ways to click with them and songs that the boys like to keep them motivated. My 5 yo learned to play Headwigs Theme by John Williams with Alexio! Mh 7yo loves to try techniques on the piano and just loves the class with Alexio. Great teacher!

Alexi is an awesome teacher, very laid back and incredibly knowledgeable. He's been able to answer all my questions and guide me in the direction to a fuller understanding of the guitar.

My 10 year old son has taken about 6 lessons so far with Alexios and LOVES it! Alexios has a very calm and laid back style and is very aware of what needs to happen in each lesson to get the most learning and the most fun. We definitely recommend this instructor!

I came into these classes never taking a lesson in my life, I was worried it was going to be a very structured, class based lesson plan. He helped me break the fear of a 1 on 1 instructor, and he made these lessons very educational and extremely fun. From playing alongside me with the licks and patterns I wanted to learn to helping me develop my own playing by taking these scales and licks and jamming alongside me. I was afraid a lot of these patterns would get boring and repetitive but he showed me how to have fun while doing it! He is very supportive and extremely passionate about playing, and he had renewed my love for the instrument! I definitely recommend Alexios to anyone with any skill level, from basic beginner to advanced players!
