Being thrown into different and varied musical situations has been not only fun and rewarding, it has also spurred on my musical development like nothing else could.

Learning guitar with Alex was fun. He taught me about slowing down, about reading, about listening, The best part was when we would play together. Usually I would try my hand at rhythm and he would play atop. I loved it when it sound good.
Alex is a great teacher for all ages. I'm an adult new to the guitar and he is very patient with my "set in my way" fingers. He tailors lessons to my interests yet is still disciplined at reinforcing the fundamentals.
