About the Founder
At the age of 8 Alex attempted to get enrolled in a music school to learn to play the accordion, however he was turned down due to "being really short" as one music teacher had pointed out. No music school would ever see Alex as its student again. When he was 11, Alex began to play the acoustic guitar. His uncle, a well-known musician in Belarus, taught Alex guitar chords, and from that point on Alex learned to play songs by ear using different strumming techniques. Alex constantly performed solo with guitar at concerts, festivals and competitions. Alex and his family left for the States in 1991 when Alex was only 15 years old.
Training Alex had taken Meisner Technique with Robert Verlaque at T. Schreiber Studios, studied Monologue Technique and Sketch Comedy with Bobby Holder (The Actor’s Project NYC), Auditioning for Commercials with Bobby Holder and Casting Directors David Cady and Liz Lewis. Alex had also had Vocal training with Marissa Katz and Adam Roebuck (Roebuck Productions) and Musical Theater Audition Technique with Casting Director Dale Brown (Tara Rubin Casting). And of course the Business of Acting with Gwyn Gillis, Betsy Capes and Bobby Holder.
