Alex has been a wonderful teacher for my daughter! My daughter started with Alex as a beginner. She wanted to learn guitar, however, she felt as if she was behind at beginning guitar at age 13. She had a little music background from music ensemble at school, but she didn’t really have an instrument of her own. Alex met her where she was musically. He connected with her and has taught her to play the chords, various strums, and even music theory. He lets my daughter choose songs and genres of music she enjoys. Alex is supportive, patient, and kind. I definitely recommend him to any student who is wanting to learn a new instrument or who wishes to advance their level of guitar.

We’ve had Alex as a teacher for two years, and my son still looks forward to seeing him each week. Alex loves to engage kids, get them to talk about and practice songs and genres they love, and employs varied techniques to keep lessons fresh. He’s always cheerful and the kids know he likes teaching them, and the end result is, they learn a lot through him. I’m so glad we found him!

Highly recommend Alex Doty! For background, our 7yo decided to take up the relatively uncommon banjolin (think small banjo but w/ 8 steel strings like a mandolin). More rare than banjolins are banjolin instructors, but Alex reassured that 'where there's a will there's a way.' So appreciated this mindset, and it exemplifies his positive, relaxed, focused, can-do approach to teaching. Alex's musical instruction is clear and sequential, with skills progressively building over time. A great teacher for musicians of any age, and certainly a fantastic match for families -- he’s reliable, relates easily with kids, communication is prompt and easy, and lessons can be delivered in-home. For guitar and mandolin (or even banjolin!) instruction, we enthusiastically recommend Alex.

Alex has been amazing private guitar teacher and music mentor for our daughter. Over the past three years, he has consistently provided weekly instruction to our (now) 9 year old, and she is thriving. He stresses the importance of practice... after all, practice makes perfect! They have developed a unique relationship and connection through music. Our neighbors recently hired him to teach their daughter as well! Alex Doty rocks! We recommend him without reservation.
