Music School

‚ÄčAlex Laugalis  Alex Laugalis began the violin at age 4 in the Suzuki program through the University of Manitoba conservatory. Living between Canada Poland and Lithuania, he was fortunate enough to get to study with a wide array of teachers around the world in his young years. After completing the Suzuki program, performing solo as well as performing in duets, trios, quartets and the youth symphony he continued on to study violin performance at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and was also a member of their symphony. All the while, Alex was actively playing and performing on the guitar as well around the Midwest and even opened for Fall Out Boy when he was 15. After college he continued to play and perform classical but also actively pursued the nontraditional route and played both violin and guitar in a variety of rock, funk, blues, jazz, and electronica groups based in California, Wisconsin and Florida. 

After touring the south and southwest full time with a bluegrass band, Alex decided to make teaching his priority but continues to actively play and perform.
