Hi, I’m Alex and I teach Bass and Guitar lessons in Hove.

Learning an instrument is one of the most fulfilling and worthwile things we can do with our time. It's fun and rewarding, and when you get involved with other musicians it opens up more opportinities in life than you could imagine.

Student reviews

"I took weekly bass lessons with Alex for just under 4 months and saw myself improve a lot in a relatively short time! I came to bass after playing guitar for about 10 years, and as Alex also came to bass from guitar he understood exactly what techniques I would need to work on and what habits from guitar I should avoid carrying over.
Alex has a good sense of humour and we covered a variety of styles and genres, from pop and jazz to funk and metal, so I always enjoyed our lessons! When we covered music theory, his explanations were clear and didn’t go too fast.
Alex is a great teacher and his rates are very reasonable too - definitely recommend."

"Alex is a great teacher who has been teaching my 12 year old daughter bass for over a year now which she thoroughly enjoys and in which time she has made great progress. Alex is patient and his lessons are well prepared and varied covering all styles. My daughter particularly enjoys Alex's many anecdotes about bands and musicians from different eras which are always informative and greatly adds to lessons. I highly recommend Alex"

- Giles

"I went to Alex to brush up on my technique. Alex gave me short song based exercises with clear goals tailored to me as a player. I like the way Alex is patient, attentive and clearly spends time finding the best route for his students. The first lesson was free, so it's well worth a try, you won't be disappointed!"

   The Lessons   

to Services


The underrated but oh-so important hero. It reinforces the rhythmic elements underneath whilst harmonically supporting the other instruments on top. It makes people dance and gives the music a feeling of depth and I will show you how fun and worthwhile learning this instrument can be. As your bass teacher, here are some areas I will focus on:

- We will learn how to play the bass parts from many famous contemporary songs, including any songs you want to learn

- There will be a strong emphasis on improving technique and developing consistent rhythm and timing, as well as strength and dexterity in the fingers


Electric Guitar


The guitar is one of the most versatile and appealing instruments. It can be used as a layer to provide harmony to a song or it can be used as the main driving force with riffs and strong melodies providing the main hook to countless songs in rock and popular music, inspiring many people to want to learn. The great thing about it is many of these famous guitar parts are simple and can be learned with a basic degree of skill. As your guitar teacher, here are some areas I will focus on:

- We will learn how to play all the riffs and chords from many famous songs, including any songs you want to learn

- I will teach you how to improvise over almost any genre of music and create simple melodic guitar solos

    About Me   

about me

I have been been a musician since I was a young teen, starting with guitar and learning bass later on. I studied at the Brighton Institute of Modern Music when i was younger and I have plenty of experience playing with other musicians. From creating my own music in the studio and gigging with originals bands, my current involvement with a covers band as well as open mics and casual jamming sessions. Now I am in my late 20s and I have sunk thousands of hours into this passion. I still continue to grow every day and I will do it until I die. Sharing this passion and passing on what I have learned to my students makes it even more exciting and I love watching people flourish.

I am DBS checked and equivelant to degree level.
