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've played shows with critically acclaimed productions of Aladdin, Chicago, and Hello Dolly, and have worked with actors like Hugh Jackman. Pretty much anything you want to learn, I can help you! Want to compose? Want to improvise? Working on flute or clarinet? I've got you, and I'd love to help!

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.

Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

I would highly recommend Tony Mitri as a voice and music instructor. My son takes lessons with Mr. Mitri and his progress has been astounding! He studies with other teachers previously without much success. My son has said he has learned more from Mr. Mitri than all of his previous instructors. He enjoys the lessons so he works harder at making progress and it shows. He helped him expand his range substantially, and increase his confidence. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in music of any kind. Mr.Mitri is awesome professional, patient and extremely knowledgeable. You won’t be disappointed.

"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!"

It was my very first time ever playing the sax and Andrew was very patient and understanding, teaching me the basics, answering any questions I had, and showing me how to play some songs. It was my first time taking online lessons, and though I wasn't sure how it would work out at first, it went very smoothly and was a lot of fun."
