“Alex is a fantastic teacher. He breaks down musical concepts into steps that are easy to understand, but still challenging and interesting, and he's incredibly supportive. I've seen so much progress in my son's playing since Alex started working with him. My son is excited for every lesson!”
- Kathleen Hance, NE Portland

Welcome and thanks for visiting my site! I’m an experienced teacher providing private lessons in guitar, ukulele, bass guitar, songwriting, music theory, and composition in Portland, OR. I also teach group classes for adults in beginning guitar. I teach all levels and ages but I specialize in teaching beginners, as well as jazz and pop/rock styles. I’m exceptionally patient and I treat each student with respect, tailoring my curriculum to each student’s goals and interests. I studied guitar and composition at Berklee College of Music and I’ve taught hundreds of students over the past five years. If you’re interested in finding out more please contact me!
