Learn Music

I offer private lessons in piano, bass, and guitar to students of all ages and all levels of ability in Vancouver, British Columbia. Teaching music is as important to me as performance. I’ve always believed that musicians have an obligation to educate the next generation of musicians, and I am honoured to be able to help my students find their own way in music.

My emphasis is on guiding students through their own personal musical journey. Lessons are individually crafted to help you play the music you love.


I focus on making sure you’re having a good time playing music, while also making sure you have the skills needed to grow as a musician.

If you’re interested in studying with me, please enquire at alexkelleymusic@gmail.com for information about my rates or any other questions.


I am a full-time professional musician with ten years’  experience in teaching, performance, and composition. With a Bachelor’s degree in Jazz Studies from Capilano University and a Master’s degree in Ethnomusicology from the University of British Columbia, I have the theoretical and practical knowledge to help get you started or to take your playing to the next level. When I’m not teaching, I perform regularly with a wide variety of musicians in Vancouver.


Lessons take place in my central Vancouver home, easily accessible by bus and skytrain. I’m also available for lessons at my studio in North Vancouver.
