Teaching Philosophy: I believe that at the end of the day, the focus should be on the student's needs. Every student is different and requires a different approach for optimal learning. Additionally, solid foundational skills are the basis for success. Every new technique is built upon successful implementation of prior knowledge. This takes time but between goals and achievement lies diligences and consistency.

Get to know Alex Desrivieres

Hello, I'm Alex Desriveres! I'm a woodwind musician from New Jersey. I enjoy writing, learning, and playing music. I have worked as a performer on Norwegian Cruise Lines, at Dutch Wonderland amusement park, and in 2015 and 2016 was featured as a “Rising Star” at the COTA Jazz Festival. I love teaching young students to unlock their creativity through music. I emphasize guided exploration and student centered learning in my teaching style. Aside from music, I enjoy playing video games, hiking, and learning new languages!
