Welcome to my website! I hope that you enjoy a glimpse into my world as a musician and educator.
As musicians and artists continue to pivot to adjust with this new normal, I want to thank you for your support of the arts. If you’re new here, please send me a note through the Connect page - I’d love to e-meet you and hear how you found your way here!

Clarity // The newest Alexa Tarantino Quartet album, Clarity, on Posi-Tone Records released on June 5th, 2020. I am thrilled to share it with you all! Clarity can be purchased through the official store here or streamed on your preferred music service. My first record as leader for Posi-Tone Records, Winds of Change, is still available for purchase and streaming. Please feel free to check out and subscribe to my latest videos which are released (almost) weekly on my YouTube channel.
Quarantine Concert Series // Sundays at 8:00PM EDT, catch pianist/composer Steven Feifke as we present a themed live-streamed performance. We’ve explored themes from our original music to the music of Duke Ellington, John Coltrane, The Beatles, and beyond. 25% of all contributions go to organizations that are important to us. Through 25 concerts, we have been able to donate over $6,500 to causes including the New York Foundation for the Arts, The Jazz Foundation of America, the Louis Armstrong Foundation, and the Jazz Coalition [LINK]. We have also allocated $XXXX to organizations supporting the Black Lives Matter Movement, including the Grassroots Law Project. Save your spot for upcoming performances here.
After School Online // Steven Feifke and I are thrilled to have launched an online educational platform: A Step Ahead Jazz! We had a blast with our inaugural program, Summer Jazz Online, which featured guest artists Wynton Marsalis, Christian McBride, and more. Now we’re back presenting weekly masterclasses through the month of October! Whether you’re a student, educator, aficionado, or enthusiast, join us to get back into the swing of things as the school year starts. Please direct any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
