Alexandra Gorlin-Crenshaw

I have a serious and rigorous approach and I accept students from beginner to professional levels. Love for music is the first priority. I take all of my students seriously and expect each one to come with a genuine desire to learn and a steady commitment to practicing. I believe in teaching with compassion, humour and warmth--and some playfulness goes a long way in efficient and memorable learning. I respect each student's unique background and personal goals. I organize regular group activities and workshops with guest teachers, facilitating a vibrant and inspiring communal atmosphere amongst my students. Please don't hesitate to contact me with questions. You can find more information at this website: https://spark.adobe.com/page/YcFeXUrZsjpUv/
