About Me


AL 2011
My name is Alexander B. Rodmann, since more than 4 decades i am working as  musician and guitar-teacher.

Born into an artist-family (my mother was a painter,  an uncle has been graphicdesigner, the brother of my grandpa worked as violinist in the south of france, as well as more other artists around in the family), so i started my carreer as a musician at the late age of 13 by autoditactically learning to play the guitar.

Soon around the age of 14 i started to play in Bands, later on beeing involved in all kinds of Bands and projects, Live and in Studio, mainly as guitarrist and later on also as a drummer (also see my musical miles).

After a couple of years later i got interested in recording-techniques in 1985, so i then learned to play a bit of keyboards as well. All instruments i tought myself  autodidactically.

Meanwhile i am working as musician and guitar-teacher for more than four decades. Very early i soon began to teach playing the guitar as a side-income, thus working as a guitar-teacher also for serveral music-schools around the area of Frankfurt and Bad Nauheim. I worked a couple of years for the kath. educational institution (in Frankfurt/M) dealing with students from between 8 and 72 years (also in groups up to 10 persons) for the last years.

You think Music-/Teaching is too expensive?

PianisteA very interesting article by the TONKÜNSTLERVERBANDS BADEN-WÜRTTEMBERG E.V. (Musicians association) rules out why every kind of music live or lessons should keep a certain value or payment for the musician. Read here the Article.

Many people not involved closer into the issue of "working music" every so often dont have any clue about what or how much a musician or music-teacher has to work for his job to be able to play an instrument or even to teach it.

To play any instrument takes years, takes loads of investments for instruments, high-schools or lessons. It takes many hours of practising in "sweat and tears" until one reaches a certain stage of ability. To teach an instrument to others is even a same heavy task, as you have to know and learn anything yourself first before you are ablte to teach it...
This all should be honoured and be payed the same to keep a fair balance between musicians and "normal" jobprofiles such as workers, employees or other freelancers.

Studies in Brain-science clearly state it: learning to play a musical instrument keeps our brain abilities up to high age!
Just by accident i found this interesting article written by Margret Manning on a Website for Generation 60+. Even if i am not yet in my 60ies, the facts presented there were very interesting and undeniably strong thats why we like to present this article in full length here to our JM-Users.
We furthermore like to point out our articles "What music does to our brians (Part 1) and (Part 2)" on the same issue. Read on to the fascinating article

trumpetplayer4 Powerful Benefits of Learning a Musical Instrument with 50+
(by Margaret Manning)

When you think of a “typical” music student, you might picture a 7-year-old girl or boy, sitting nervously in front of a piano, the tiny fingers resting lightly on the keys. Several decades ago, you may have even been that little girl or boy yourself.
Well, if you think that musical instruments are just for kids, it’s probably time to update your soundtrack. There are plenty of reasons people over 50 should consider adding a little music to their lives.

Music is for Your Brain what Circuit Training is for Your Body

As the fitter baby boomers among us know, circuit training involves moving from one exercise machine to another, while giving ourselves a total body workout. There are very few activities that can do the same for your brain – and music is one of them.

An old german saying is: "... often when you don´t imagine it happens ..." and exactly like this it was for me when in autumn 2015 the "ERG Guitars"-company from Israel asked me if i wanted to play one of their guitars to become an official Endorser for them.

03 Mod Bertino tobacco front closeWho will say no to that. Me neither.
But already i had a very clear vision of what kind of a guitar i would have liked to play. In the 1930-50ies of last century there was this famous luthier from Paris/France, Bernabe Busato, who already in this time built very special Jazzguitars that always have been a tempt for me as they have a very special round an full sound.

Meanwhile these guitars have become rarities and are getting harder amd harder to find on the market, and if you will have to pay something between 10 to 15.000.-€ which is just unaffordable for a musician like me..

I introduced my vision for copying such a Busato-Guitar to the constructors of Polak-Guitars (before ERG-Guitars) and provided them with detailed informations on how to build such a kind of making, detailed measures about headstock, bodyshape, top and bottom.
The Busato-guitars have become famous for their strongly arched bodies, similar to the meanwhile well known archtop jazzguitars. Just not with F-holes but the famous Oval-hole.
