Portland Area Bass Teachers
Originally from Santa Rosa, CA, Alexander Margitich began his musical journey singing in the church choir that his father conducted. Alex took up the guitar and eventually attended Berklee College of Music where he studied guitar and composition. While in school Alex found work as a peer tutor and began to develop his teaching skills and his love of sharing knowledge.
After his time at Berklee Alex found an opportunity playing bass in the band WATERS, leading him on a year-long adventure of playing Rock n Roll all across the United States and in Europe. Eventually landing in Brooklyn, Alex spent the next few years founding his own band, Andrei Rublev, and playing shows all over Brooklyn and Manhattan. Alex also worked full time as a teacher for NYC Guitar School where he continued to learn and hone his craft as a teacher, specializing in using the guitar for songwriting and improvisation.
Before moving to Portland, Alex met his future wife and got married in June 2016. In addition to teaching, Alex also works as a composer, performer, and songwriter. Recently his song “Together/Apart” was featured on Season 2 of ABC’s Quantico.
