Many new things have occured with alexboccia.com!  I have some new student exclusives!  The first thing and most beneficial is that I now have a student forum up.  In the forum my students will be able to ask questions regarding any topic on music and guitar at anytime.  I will personally be active in the forum answering these questions, but this also gives my students the chance to share their own knowledge about the questions asked.  This directly helps them to better understand the information they already learned.  Students will also be able to have discussions with eachother about favorite bands, promote their own gigs & videos & recordings, network and find possible bandmates or jam buddies, and get exclusive access to my new recordings & videos & other cool stuff!  For instance, in the forum my students will have access to all my backing tracks totally FREE!  There are now 4 backing tracks available on the music page (under media), but only my students will have free access to all my backing tracks in a downloadable format.  The best thing about this forum is that it is totally FREE for all my current students!  You still pay the same amount for your lessons, but as usual I continue to give you more!  If you are not currently one of my students, but play guitar/bass and take lessons you should ask yourself this "am I getting all this from my instructor?"  If the answer is "no" then what are you waiting for?  Visit my "Contact" page and sign up now!

New stuff on the Music Page (under media)!  As I mentioned before in the previous paragraph there are 4 free sample backing tracks, but even better I have samples of the new OLD IRONSIDES album up!!!!  The album release date is set for April 30th (no later), and it may be even sooner than that!  It will be a digital release available to purchase on itunes, amazon, Rhapsody, and other music sites.  The actual hard copy (CD) release date is currently undetermined.  The band is currently searching for an artist to do the album artwork.  We will also be getting new t-shirts, stickers, and have a website up when the hard copies are released.  I also have a vision of a massively cool CD release party which all of who read this are invited of course.  Though the release date is undetermined it should not be long.  Once we find the artist things will move quickly, and we are working hard on this!  If you know of an artist you would like to suggest please e-mail their contact to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
