Alex Blocker

I couldn't be more excited to welcome Alex Blocker to Coletrain Music Academy. I met Alex through the music industry and was immediately impressed with his violin chops. Once I discovered his experience and passion for teaching, paired with his diverse background in Pop, Funk, Soul, Folk, Hip-Hop, and Orchestra, I knew Alex would be an incredible asset to our students. - Coleman Smith, CMA Founder & Music Director
