About Alexander

I graduated from USC with a doctorate in Percussion Performance. I have taught at Citrus College, was a Teacher's Assistant at USC, and most recently moved back to Los Angeles from teaching at a university in China. I have also taught at several after-school academies in Los Angeles. My students have been all ages and skill levels.

I perform regularly on drum set and percussion in LA and I am widely versed in music theory and history. Because I have taught at colleges, students planning on going to college for music would receive an excellent education from me and would be thoroughly prepared to audition and take entrance exams.
Younger students would greatly benefit from my pedagogical expertise and energetic teaching style.

I have had several years assisting foreign (ESL) students with revising papers and preparing for assignments.
