Singing Piano Music Production Music Theory Song Writing Composition
With almost three decades of experience in highly recommended venues all over the world, such as The Crazy Piano’s in Scheveningen/Holland, The Soprano’s Pianobar in Willemstad/Curacao or The Casino Pianobar in Bremen/Germany, Alexander has become one of best booked entertainers of Europe. His classical training and professional education at three conservatories in Holland provide a thorough technical basis, but never stands in the way of his contagious enthousiasm. Having played solo and in various line ups for any imaginable event, this highly talented musician developped a unique blend of taste, flexibility, adaptabiliy and skill, which explains why he was, and still is, the first choice of Holland’s most popular stand up comedian Najib Amhali to bring Alexander along whenever he needs live musical back up. Resulting in touring the most prestigious theatres in Holland and Belgium (Carré, Ziggo Dome, Circus Theater etc.) over the last eight years, adding up to a staggering 600 sell out shows, and counting…Alexander has decided it is time to start passing on knowledge and experience to those who seek to develop their musicianship or to those who simply want to get acquainted to music. Beginners or advanced pupils: they're all welcome!Alexander teaches by his own methods, which adapts from student to student.

Bass Guitar Music Theory Song Writing Composition Music Production
Hey everyone!I started officially teaching in 2020, before that I worked in audio post-production and compositions for video games (for Ubisoft, Epic Games, and a number of smaller developers). I have played over 400 gigs onstage as a bassist with over 80 bands until 2017; mainly rock/Metal oriented acts, but sometimes jazz, blues-rock, so mostly heavy stuff.During my conservatory years in Budapest where I was born, I worked hard to get my sound engineering diploma as well in London, which allowed me to later help build recording studios, and get into music- and audio production. Currently I have my own small-time production studio in Strasbourg (France), where I last worked on SFX design for Unreal Engine 5, but you can find my name beside projects like Assassin's Creed: Black Flag, The Crew, Watchdogs, a bit beside Fortnite too.Currently I'm producing albums of nearby bands, mainly Metal oriented ones, and I also work for the biggest amusement park in Europe composing music.I'm here to offer knowledge about recording, music and audio production (mixing and mastering as well), playing bass in studio or onstage, finding your tone as a musician, music theory, composition and arrangement in various styles, basic understanding of acoustics etc, the list is long.Beyond my wildest expectations (I never really aimed at teaching), this year I found myself enjoying passing the torch on many of the things I do fairly well, so I thought I'd give this site a shot.
