Alex’s life as a musician, songwriter and performer has always been integrated with education. Music is the glue that joins subjects of study together; a study of music can deepen our ability to comprehend and communicate.
Alex has provided music lessons in schools, colleges and universities, centres of special needs, prisons and community centres. He holds regular immersive guitar retreats and facilitates a wide range of workshops including specialised acoustic guitar workshops and songwriting.
Alex is determined to share my musical knowledge and ability.
Alex plays wonderfully!
Alex is a fantastic and inspiring guitarist and guitar teacher. He taught me from the age of about 10 to 15, and encouraged me and helped in so many ways… even after I’d stopped taking lessons with him. Alex has played such a massive part in my musical journey so far, and a massive part in me becoming a pro musician myself. Cannot recommend highly enough!
I can highly recommend Alex as a teacher and musician and all round good guy. He has worked with us in the past on our Guitar Retreats teaching groups of adult students over a whole weekend with excellent results and great feedback.
