Welcome to the internet home of musician Alex Hodge and my company, ACH Musical Enterprises (ACHME). I am a musician, music teacher, and recording engineer/producer living and working in the Northern Virginia/Washington D.C. metro area. I play guitar as a soloist (classical and fingerstyles) as well as guitar, 5-string banjo, and mandolin with a number of the area's bluegrass musicians, including an alt Bluegrass/pop music group, the Virginia Woodpickers. Recordings of my playing are on this site for your enjoyment, so please take a moment to have a listen. I teach guitar, banjo, and mandolin lessons in my home studio and offer instruction in music theory, arranging, improvisation, and other topics. I also own and operate my own recording studio and may be available to help you record your next project. Please send me an email to procure my services as a soloist or instructor, get more information about booking the VIrginia Woodpickers, or inquire about recording services. Please take a moment to leave a comment in my guestbook and be sure to sign up on the mailing list to receive notices on where I'm playing next. Thanks for stopping by, and I look forward to playing for you somewhere soon.
