Alexander Vlassenkov has been teaching and playing guitar internationally for over 30 years.Alex has earned two Master's Degrees in Music Performance and Guitar Teaching, one from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London, UK, and one from the State Academy of Music in Minsk, Belarus. He has been trained and certified in Suzuki Guitar method with David Madsen, Frank Longay, and Mary Lou Roberts at the Hartt Music School in Hartford, CT.  

Alex believes that there are three key words: Practicing, Patience and Persistence which make studying guitar successful. By practicing regularly and correctly we learn and reinforce new skills. Patience helps us to take small steps in learning, and practice them at a slow tempo. Persistence allows us to continue practicing in spite of difficulties.

Currently Alex teaches guitar at Neighborhood Music School in New Haven, CT, and offers  private guitar instruction at his home studio in Branford, CT, to students of all ages and all levels.

Along with performing classical guitar recitals, Alex has been playing guitar music for special events, including: Wedding Ceremonies, Cocktail Hours, Parties, Art Gallery Openings, Dinners, Celebrations, Receptions, Corporate Functions, Worship Services, etc.
