As an artist, teacher, and writer, bassist Alex Goodin is most engaged by deep, simple, and honest truths. Holding degrees from Michigan State University (B.M., 2013) and Boston University (M.M., 2015), Alex has enjoyed a varied career as a solo, chamber, and orchestral musician including engagements with Sinfonie Orchester Berlin, Boston Philharmonic Orchestra, Atlantic Symphony Orchestra, Grand Rapids Symphony, and Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra.
In 2014 Alex co-founded Palaver Strings, a musician-led string chamber orchestra focused on the ideals of artistic and administrative collaboration, initiating new partnerships with service organizations including the Salvation Army “Our Place” Day Care Center for Homeless Children in Cambridge, MA. Alex continued to develop his skills with early childhood music education at Berlin’s Cosmopolitan School and completed additional training programs hosted by Music Academy of the West, Interlochen, New World Symphony, and the Sphinx Organization.
When Alex is not working, he is often found in the kitchen cooking with his fiancée Danielle, jogging around the neighborhood, or decluttering and scrubbing his apartment.Click here to download Alex’s headshot
