Alex

Drum Instructor

Alex is a professional drummer and percussionist who performs regularly in and around the NYC area. Aside from his many different freelance gigs, some of his current projects include The Jealous Fates, Ahlfabet Swing Trio, and Fat Bois Brass Band. He also plays percussion for various musical theater productions, some of which have included Jesus Christ Superstar, Spamalot, and Rent.

Since even before he picked up the drums at age four, music has played an essential role in his life. He was inspired early by the great classic rock drummers like John Bonham and Keith Moon, which evolved into a love for the Jazz drummers who inspired them. He went on to receive his BA in Jazz Studies at SUNY Purchase, where he learned from jazz drumming legends John Riley, Kenny Washington, and Richie Morales.

Along with playing and performing, Alex has been teaching music since high school. His students have ranged from ages 4 to 76 and of all levels. Through his years of teaching, he has found that no two students learn quite exactly the same. He loves to design lesson plans specific to each student’s specific goals and interests.
