Private Saxophone Teacher

I encourage all my students to enjoy exploring the sound of the saxophone and to find their voice on the instrument. Lessons include everything from reading and basic stylistic concepts, to improvisation, playing along with recordings of your favorite players, and transcription. I am a graduate of the University of North Texas Jazz Studies program and have over 15 years of teaching experience.

I am also very diligent in teaching sound production, embouchure, and tone. I specialize in prepping saxophonists for high school and college auditions. Many of my high school students have participated in San Diego Honor Band and San Diego Youth Symphony and received top honors. I also offer full-service recording services and can help guide you through the college audition process.

About Ian

I've been teaching woodwinds (saxophone, flute, and clarinet) for the past 15 years and enjoy the one-on-one interaction with students of all ages. Music is one of the last professions that is truly learned through apprenticeship. Having a good private teacher is absolutely essential to your growth

Ian is a great teacher. Very encouraging, skilled and helpful. I learned a lot in an hour and I think I have already improved. Can’t wait to practice what he taught me. And looking forward to next week.

Thanks for letting me provide a reference for Alex. I have taken alto sax lessons from him over the years, starting about 4-5 years ago. Alex is a great musician and teacher. Each lesson was consistently structured for: sound quality and listening, technical work and reading, duets, and improvisation. Rather than heavy music theory, he would instead provide routines to reinforce these concepts. He was always patient, and emphasized what I did well, with subtle redirection to correct problems. I definitely improved under his guidance and teaching.

The only reason I stopped seeing him was that my job became very demanding, and I could not devote enough time to practice and justify the time and cost of lessons. But even when I showed up unprepared, he was understanding and flexible to work with me.

If it would have been possible to have Alex come to me, I would have welcomed that.

I figure out exactly where you are in your technique and knowledge of music and of the instrument. Then, I start teaching from there! For me, the goal of lessons should be the goal of the student, and I do my best to honor that while pushing my students to surpass those goals.

My ultimate aim, is to provide you with an approach to practicing and performing music, that keeps you wanting to go back to do more.

In my career, I primarily play the tenor and baritone saxophones, but I mostly teach alto, and play soprano sometimes. Additionally, I also play the clarinet, bass clarinet, flute and piccolo. With this experience, I help out a lot of my more advanced saxophone students with doubling on these instruments, so they can be prepared for college and the professional world.

I encourage my advanced Jr. High and High School students to audition for various honor groups throughout California and the country such as SCSBOA, CBDA, JBOA, etc. With my background in these groups, I ...

"We have had an excellent experience with Lonze. He is great with my 10 year old son who is taking music lessons for the first time. After just 3 lessons, I am amazed at the knowledge and skills my son has picked up. Lonze was great at communicating right from the start, promptly answering all of my questions and even sharing some tips and tricks to make sure we got off to a smooth start. During lessons, Lonze is patient and encouraging, and has a great way of weaving in all aspects of musicianship beyond just focusing on the instrument - tempo, breathing, reading music, etc. He makes it a point to emphasize a love for playing music and that has been a great motivator for my son to actually want to practice every day. I'm grateful that we found Lonze and would recommend him to anyone!"
