Step By Step Music © 2016 • (253) 304-
Hi, my name is Alex and my passion is teaching music. I offer clients a unique learning experience with customized lesson plans and personalized attention to fit your exact goals and needs. These aren’t just words to me…they are a commitment I make to everyone that I have the pleasure of working with.
I hold a Bachelor's of Music from Berklee College of Music (in Boston) where I studied Bass Performance and Composition. I’ve had years of experience playing upright and electric bass in a variety of styles including rock, jazz, orchestral, and big band. I primarily teach guitar, upright & electric bass, and ukulele. I enjoy playing and have studied a variety of instruments over the last 20 years.
There are a lot of different music teachers with a lot of different teaching styles. Here’s what I offer: Every single lesson is designed just for you. We focus on your goals while having fun playing music together. I ensure that you employ good technique, playing your instrument with power and control but with minimal effort. We talk about good practice habits and how to achieve new heights with your abilities. You learn to play songs that you recognize as well as improvising your own. I always encourage you to understand the “why” behind the music.
