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
- Ear training
- Sight reading
- Grades or exam tuition

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.

Perfect! Patient. Funny. Very very competent. Loved my first lesson. Can't wait for the next one. Maria.
Perfect! Wonderful bass teacher with a lot of talent
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.
Perfect! My daughter left Alex's lesson inspired and energised.
