Alex was prompt, professional, and incredibly talented. He took the time to learn a new song just to make our wedding day that much more special! 10/10 would recommend Alex for any function!

I booked Alex to play some music for my wife and I at a picnic on our anniversary. From the very start Alex was a total pro. He responded quickly to my messages and made sure he had all the details. On the night of the event he was right on time and played for us for an hour. The music was great and the overall experience was as well. I would highly recommend Alex to anyone looking to hire a musician for any kind of event.

Details: General event / party • 25 guests or fewer • 18 - 30 years old • Guitar • Other strings • Jazz / Blues • Outdoors

I have been Alex’s student for a little over a year now, during that time I have developed as a musician and a performer. I learned how to relax tension that was keeping me from having the correct technique. I also learned how to think about music in terms of it’s phrasing and apply that to performance. In this past school year I improved more in my orchestra class than I have any other, moving up several chairs and then going on to make it to a higher orchestra. He helped me through the process of auditioning and gave me good advice on what improvements my teachers would be looking for. Overall I have not only immensely improved but having Alex as a teacher has been a great experienced a lot of fun.

Alex was awesome! Having him play at my cousins bridal shower was the extra touch that made our event special. He responds right away, learned a song that was special to the bride, showed up early to have everything set up. He is a delight and would hire him again!! Thank you Alex!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Alex charges $30 for 30 minute lessons, $35 for 45 minutes, and $40 for one hour.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The first thing that Alex asks of a student is what their goals are. In order to set up a plan for a new student, Alex need to assess their current level of technique and experience. Once he has learned enough about how they play, his goal is to start building on elements of their playing that need work. Alex finds that this most often begins with solidifying their technique. Having good technique is the first step to being able to play any piece assigned to you with ease. Once Alex has given them a handful of appropriate technique exercise for them to work on over time, he will assign them pieces of music starting at an easy level until they come across a piece that they find difficult and need to spend many weeks on. From this, Alex can assess their repertoire level and can assign them appropriate pieces from then on.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Alexander Lewis studies with cellist Horacio Contreras at Lawrence University Conservatory of Music where he is pursuing a degree in Music Performance. He grew up in Seattle, Washington studying with cellists Mary Walters and Rajan Krishnaswami and playing in the Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestras.
