Dedication, mentorship, reliability, and an abundance of knowledge in everything that is guitar and music composition in general, Alex blew passed my expectations as both a teacher and as a person. He challenges his students with an array of exercises designed to unlock their potential in the most proactive way possible in a friendly environment that makes you excited to share your progress with him.
