Methodology

My classes are tailor made to the individuals needs and goals. Learning music is about having fun and my aim is to make people feel inspired and empowered whilst providing them a skill set of their own.

The following topics are an example of what can be covered in lessons:

- Songs you would like to learn
- Technique (finger style, pick playing, positioning)
- Playing different styles of music
- Soloing
- Ear training
- Scales
- Sight reading
- Theory
- Grades or exam tuition

This tour took place in India and Bangladesh, home to the prestigious Seagull publishing company. Performances included the Goethe institute in Calcutta, Dehli and Mumbai, The Bangladesh Poetry and Literature Festival and the newly commissioned Calcutta University.


-MUSIC TEACHER (2013-PRESENT)

Volunteer at Girls Rock London in 2016 and 2017

Girls Rock London is a non profit organisation that teaches young girls and non binary folk how to learn and perform on an instrument and help them to build self confidence.
At Girls Rock London I give lessons on the bass guitar to groups of up to 6 people, teaching the basics of the instrument and helping with songwriting.
Some of the campers at GRL have social/learning disabilities so part of my role is to provide a safe space and an encouraging environment for everyone to learn and feel welcome. I have volunteered at both the women and girls camps for two years.

I am a freelance teacher giving private lessons in peoples homes and in my own studio. I have taught a range of styles including jazz, pop and rock with the ability of the student ranging from beginner to intermediate. The age range of the students I teach range from 8 years - 50 years old.

Perfect! Wonderful bass teacher with a lot of talent

Markéta

Perfect! I had doubts about my technique so Alex showed me several ways how to improve that and also gave me an advice on how to approach ear training. I was little nervous but the atmosphere was very friendly and chilled, it was an hour well spent and now I know which direction to take to improve my playing! I was even given papers with tips on how to play at home. I wouldn´t hesitate to recommend Alex to anyone.
