    A true professional and a great teacher! I have been taking remote violin lessons now for 6 months with Alexander, having switched after having had a mediocre experience with my previous teacher. Wow…what a difference. Alex blends his extensive knowledge, talent, and seriousness about his craft with a witty sense of humor. He is able to simplify the complexities of violin technique so it is truly accessible. It’s been great to have the remote flexibility as I travel frequently for work. Highly recommended.

    I started taking violin lessons from Alexander two months ago and I can definitely say that he taught me a lot of things I didn’t know before. I had some violin background as a kid years ago and he made me realize what I did wrong and gave me so many tips to correct my mistakes and learn the right technique. There is no need to say that he is really talented and one of the best teacher you can find. I’m really glad that I was lucky enough to learn a lot of things from the pro and had a chance to see him play with me.
