Having recently worked with Alex over the last few months, I am highly impressed with his abilities as a guitarist and his overall musical knowledge and capabilities, especially in jazz, classical and pop genres. He is a superb musician, an excellent teacher and a terrific person to work with.
Alex and his uncle Vadim are simple THE BEST players and teachers in the East Coast of the USA. Alex is a 6 strings guitar and Vadim is a 7 strings. Just see them and listen their music. And try them once. Best wishes.

He is deeply knowledgeable and extremely fluent in different types of music, including classical, folk, jazz, and pop. He is also a very pleasant and thoughtful person with the right temperament to be a superb teacher.
