Alex is a truly inspirational music teacher. My three children adore her and genuinely look forward to her lessons, which she always makes fun and relevant. All three learn piano and theory with Alex, and one the recorder as well. She is skilled in all of these areas and is able to adapt her teaching style to the children's different personalities. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Alex as a dedicated teacher who shows 100% commitment to her students.
I found Alex in February this year when I was looking for a classical singing teacher for my 15 year old daughter Grace. We are both extremely delighted that we have found Alex!! She is young, dynamic, enthusiastic and passionate about her singing (which is amazing) her teaching is focused yet fun. Grace really enjoys every lesson and her singing technique is improving all the time.I can highly recommend Alex to anyone wanting classical training. We think she is excellent.
Just to say that I was delighted with my daughter's exam results, particularly the marks for her singing pieces, so thank you very much. I am so pleased that my reluctant daughter now has a grade 5 singing exam, and would like her (with her agreement !) to be entered for other exams.
Thank you for being such a super teacher- I really appreciate it
