alex koffler aka the beauty above:
alex''s musical foundation and talent, as both composer and musician, began with his eclectic and intellectual beginnings. being born to ivy league professors nurtured and helped unleash his inexhaustible lust for knowledge, as, undoubtedly, being the great nephew of the legendary musical pioneer kurt weill, wielded the strands of alex''s musical and artistic auspices. at the budding age of eight, alex''s love affair with the stage began with a performance at madison square garden under the direction of highly revered choreographer jacques d''amboise. later, at age eleven he would study with famed musical composer aaron copland, touted as the "pioneer of american music."
