Alexis says,

“Activities engage adults in multiple methods of music production. In this instance, [the] young man had an ear for music. I taught him the chord progression by rote while singing and leading the others.”

Aside from that, Alexis also teaches at Berklee College of Music where he graduated. He says,

“Piano is not my main instrument. My competency is limited to accompanying myself and students when needed. I am a graduate of Berklee College of Music where I also am a faculty member in the 5 Week Performance Program.”

Alexis also worked with children, people in LGBT shelters, and even domestic violence centers.

“No matter your functioning, music can be an avenue of communication and engagement,” Alexis says. “The young man in the video demonstrated musical skill on par with college students.​”
