  Testimonial by Gayathri S.
My son has been learning piano from Alexander for the past few months & he enjoys it a lot. As any 8 yr old, my son gets distracted so easily, but Alexander finds a way to bring him back to focus. The combination of fun, personality and professionalism that Alexander has makes it easier for my son to feel comfortable learning piano. And we are seeing good progress within a few classes. I would definitely recommend Alexander.
  Testimonial by Zhiping H.
My kids Zoe (9 yo) and Zack (8 yo) have a lot of fun learning how to play the piano with Alexander. He is very patient and kind, and he treats my kids like equals and takes the time to explain to them why they should do certain things. He is highly hands-on and demonstrates the precise techniques for improving my kids' skills. He can play any sheet of music put in front of him, and it is great fun to watch him play through several songs in order for my kids to identify the songs that they like to play. It is quite fun for me to sit with my kids during their piano lessons with Alexander.
  Testimonial by Eugenio Candal
Alex is a phenomenal teacher. He is punctual, reliable and engages very well with children. He keeps them motivated every week and my kids look forward to having classes with him.
I would highly recommend him to any parent that wishes to have music in their children's lives.
  Testimonial by Nuria Guizar
My daughter started with Alexander months ago (she is 4 years old) and has been a great experience. He helps her to explore the music and the most important to feel it. Very dedicated, professional and caring. My daughter progress is great, she is practicing daily looking forward for her next lesson. I can definitely recommend him as a great piano teacher I'm so glad we found him.
