    Wow. I just discovered your music. I am loving it. Waiting on all your cd’s as I write this. I haven’t been this excited about new music in a long time. They only instrumental music I have been into up until this point was classical. I have varied tastes classic rock, country and bluegrass. But wow I am loving this. Thamks.

    Your compositions are so amazing , they bring me to tears and you play them with so much power and conviction . I feel like I’ve just heard Ravel’s “Bolero” for the first time at its premier in Paris . 😉

    Admirada Alexandra:
    Tu música es excelsa y me congratulo por haberte encontrado, así puedo presumir que soy admirador de la más grande guitarrista del mundo.

    Tanta calidad se podría pensar que es de Estados Unidos, pero me resultó curioso y sorpresivo que seas de un país sin mucha tradición en el rock.

    Tienes en mí a uno de tus más grandes admiradores y mi admiración es porque eres guitarrista, eres increíble y por ser mujer.

    Desde tierras aztecas te mando un respetuoso abrazo y ojalá algún día decidas presentarte aquí en México.

    Hi Alexandra,
    I like so much your music. It is never trivial. BUT… In your bio you didn’t mention how you learned music. You play guitar and keyboards very well, so I would like to know if you are a self-taught musician or what. Many guitarist are self-taught but I bet this is not the case. Thank you for your music and your reply.

      Hi Maurizio,
      Thank you for the nice words! I am glad that you like my works so much! I’ve been taking private lessons in classical guitar for the first 3-4 years and then moved to electric and I continued taking private lessons for many years. Regarding the piano, I am to a great extent self-taught because I was very disappointed by my two teachers at the beginning and I decided to go on my own. Sadly, now I figure out that I should have looked for another teacher instead of learning on my own because I didn’t develop my technique properly and it takes a lot of work to compensate for it now.
