Alex first put bow to hand at the age of five and continued her studies in violin through college. It was then and there in upstate New York when she discovered the lure of traditional fiddle music. Since then she has dedicated her life to passing on the tradition of Old Time and Irish music and has been teaching fiddle, voice, banjo, guitar, and piano privately since 1997. To Alex, playing and singing traditional music is a way of life and provides an important link between generations. Students learn to respect the tradition, understand its history, and find out how they can share it with others. With that focus, Alex founded and is director of the Mountain Road Fiddle Camp in Bluegrass, VA. She has also been involved with the Blue Ridge Irish Music School in Charlottesville, VA as a fiddle and vocal teacher for close to a decade. When Alex is not teaching or planning for fiddle camp, she is performing Irish and Old Time music across the country and globe as a solo artist or with her musical partners.
Alex teaches fiddle, banjo, and voice lessons with an emphasis on Irish and Old-Time at her studio in Gordonsville.
