Alex Brander Bio:

Alex has been teaching professionally since 2012, specializing in many styles of drumming and percussion from classical to rock. While attending the University of New Hampshire for Music Education/Performance, Alex gained knowledge as not only a drum set player but as a classical percussionist, performing in orchestras, pit bands, and as a soloist on both pitched and non-pitched percussion instruments. This experience combined with his extensive knowledge of popular music genres such as: Jazz, Rock, Reggae, Latin, Calypso, Funk, and R&B, have allowed him to teach and perform regularly in various settings and styles.


Traveling both nationally and internationally, Alex’s multi-faceted approach to music has gained him experience in marching percussion, percussion ensembles, hand drumming, and even steel pan competitions in the Caribbean. Alex enjoys teaching all levels and all percussion instruments and believes there is no one to young or too old to embrace the power of music and drumming.
