Get to know Alex Rise
Hi! I'm Al. I started teaching at Music & Arts in July 2019.
I have been performing and teaching brass instruments for nearly a decade, both during and following my own education post high school. I recieved a BM with a focus in Brass Instruments at the Cleveland Institute of Music in 2015, and an MM with a focus in Brass Performance and Pedagogy from the University of Maryland in 2017.
I currently balance my time between performing and teaching, here are a few of the musical groups that I perform with:
- The Apollo Orchestra
- Little Theatre of Alexandria
- Bel Cantanti Opera Company
- Landon Symphonette
- Lancaster Symphony
- DC Youth Orchestra Program
- Chesapeake youth symphony orchestra
- Maryland Youth orchestra
I teach all brass instruments, including Trumpet, Horn, Trombone, Baritone/Euphonium and Tuba. Feel free to ask for a trial lesson to see if my teaching is right for you!
