Born and raised in Missouri, Alex began playing the piano at the age of 6. By 13, he was teaching himself to play Beethoven and Chopin as well as pop songs from his favorite artists. Alex’s love for music continued to develop during high school when he learned to play the trumpet, guitar, and bass.

As Alex began to spend more of his time writing and producing music, it soon became undeniable that music was his true passion. In 2013, Alex moved to Los Angeles to pursue his dream of a career in music. At the Los Angeles College of Music, Alex was given the opportunity to delve into other aspects of music, learning to play the drums and developing his skills in composing and music production. In 2015, Alex graduated from the Los Angeles College of Music with a degree in Music Producing and Recording.

Alex is excited to be a part of the Notes For Notes team where he has the opportunity to work with students who share his passion for music.
