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.
