Biography

 
 

It all started in a Jeep.

If you were to ask Caleb who is favorite guitar player is you would get the same answer today that you would have gotten ten years ago: Stevie Ray Vaughn.  "Dad would always play three CDs whenever we went on a road trip in his Jeep Grand Wagoneer: SRV's "Greatest Hits," Hall and Oats’ "Abandoned Luncheonette," and Little Feat's "Waiting For Columbus - Live".   As I got older I appreciated the second two more, but man, "House is A' Rockin" and "Little Wing" really turned me onto the guitar."  It was a few years later that Caleb found an old guitar in a closet under the stairs and his journey began.

Having completed a Masters of Jazz Pedagogy and Performance at the University of Missouri in May 2017 and a Bachelor's Degree in Music - Jazz Studies at Wichita State University in 2013, Caleb Alexander specializes in guitar lessons in multiple styles for all levels of player.  Caleb is passionate about teaching students not only to play their instrument but also understand the music they are playing.   Beyond guitar, Caleb is also available for lessons in jazz improvisation, audio engineering, and for studio and live performance sessions.
