Sight reading a Guiliani Sonata in C for my AMEB Eighth Grade exam.
Working on the fingering for Bouree
1 & 2 (J. S. Bach).
Exciting variations on Etude

I innocently thought we were seriously posing for a photo that I didn't see that one coming. Next time it's my turn.
This is stickers time, built over the years. My teacher has a boxful and I get to choose the best ones.
Alexander~Every lesson with my teacher is unique and exciting ~ November 2006
I started studying classical guitar with Alfred Alexander when I was four and a half, in April 2000.
In the beginning, I was quiet,
hardly saying a word to him and communicating with him by pointing my
fingers while sitting safely in my mother's lap (A position unsuitable
for a classical guitarist I later found but a sight to see.)
Thankfully that lasted
for only a year and now you can't stop me from talking.
Considering the various
musical works that we go through, I currently study with my teacher for
3 hours a week.
Alfred is very knowledgeable and thorough, a great guitarist with an understanding
of various musical styles and ready to give examples to make things clearer
He is also
patient and tolerating a lot of my gimmicks,
appreciating my style of learning.
Sometimes when we play a duet, it becomes
a duel for me as I race him to the end, forgetting what a duet is.
