“Alex is a spectacular teacher. He approached my musical ability openly and without judgment … Alex is a brilliant guitarist and a very cool, collected person. I would recommend his classes to students of any age.”
- Sophia W.
“Alex is not only an amazingly talented musician he is also a great teacher… I learned more about theory [from Alex] than I had previously learned over my 10 years of playing guitar.”
- Ron K.
“[Alex] can both play and teach — this is pretty rare in my experience…Alex is also a cool guy and brings an interesting perspective to music instruction…Give him a try — you won’t regret it!”
- Frank G.
“I learned a lot from Alex, including less commonly used jazz chords. He can listen to a song and then play it back on the guitar way better and faster than I could if I was trying to do it by myself. Plus he is a really nice guy! I highly recommend lessons with him.”
- Lindsey B.
“Alex taught guitar to my two boys, age 9 and 12, when we lived in Portland. He really connects with kids and they learned a lot… Best guitar teacher ever.”
- Marni L.
