Among his tutors within Brazil were Celisa Amaral Frias, Marcelo Jaffé and Elisa Fukuda, with whom he studied until 1998, when he was awarded a Vitae Foundation scholarship to join the Karajan Academy of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. For two years Alex studied  under the guidance of Wilfried Strehle and toured, performed and recorded under conductors such as Claudio Abbado, Simon Rattle, Daniel Baremboim and Lorin Maazel.
