About Alex

I am passionate for all things musical from music theory to musical instruments. This comes out in my teaching and tutoring. I have been teaching theory, piano, guitar and drums with my own curriculum for twenty years. I graduated with double BA in Music Education and Music Performance in classical guitar from Florida International University in 1997. I have owned my private music lesson business since 1999 and now look forward to working with additional students through Wyzant.

Musically, on a more personal note, as a guitarist I have played with many musicians and also headlined the Black River Falls Festival with my former band and released 3 CDs. After some heavy listening to Johnny Cash, I am now on a outlaw country rock solo album venture.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.

I have taken many music composition classes while earning my degree from FIU's music education program. I also have a catalog of over 100 of my own compositions. Commercially, I have songs that have appeared on numerous television shows.

Drums

I earned my degree in music education at FIU, which makes me proficient in all instruments. I've been teaching drums since 1999. I do all styles- Jazz, Rock, etc.

I've been playing guitar for over 30 years. I'm well versed in all styles from Rock such as Van Halen to classical such as Tarrega. I have played with numerous bands and also play classical guitar for private events. I've taught guitar for 20 years.

Music History

I took four years of music history which began with Gregorian Chant, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Impressionist, and 20th century. I have a vast knowledge of all major composers of those periods.

I earned my degree in music education from F.I.U. which makes me qualified to teach in all instruments. I have had many piano students in my 20 years of teaching, as it is one of the most popular instruments.

Sight Singing

Part of my curriculum at F.I.U., I had to take it along with ear training. I am well versed in fixed do and movable do. Fixed do is used more internationally while movable do is used here in America.
