Following graduation he entered the University of Texas from which he graduated with highest honors. Today, he continues his piano with his coach of twelve years Robert Durso, a faculty member of the Golandsky Institute of Piano. He also studies conducting with Rosalind Erwin, the conductor of the Pottstown Orchestra and the Musica 2000 Symphony Orchestra. Alex plans no fewer than three recordings. One will include music by the master composers, another will include religious music, and the third is the long awaited Christmas album which will include his own arrangements of beloved holiday music and carols.
