Luther stays where I’m at and then helps me go the next step. That is useful for consistent gradual progress without the frustrations of moving either too slow or too fast (I am a beginning tenor saxophone player). Nice interpersonal style, patient and easy going, while methodical.

I think Luther is great. He works with my 10-year old son on piano, singing and even trumpet and violin as needed. My son has to work hard to progress, and Luther customizes the lesson plan for him and seems to understand him well. I'm really excited about them working together.

So far, I have had only one lesson with Dr. M., the only singing lesson I've had in my entire 66 years of a lifetime. My only regret, is that I did not take them sooner. Dr M. is patient, an expert, and motivational. What more could you ask for when working with a teacher. He thinks he can make a singer out of me; I'll have to trust his judgement. It would be awesome, if he achieves our goal.

Online Saxophone Teacher

I have been playing the saxophone for about 17 years now, starting from when I was in 5th grade. I have gotten to play throughout middle and high school, as well as college. I've played alto, tenor, and bari sax, but I prefer to teach alto saxophone. Music, and the saxophone specifically, is a great passion of mine, and I would like to help instill that passion in others. Although I am new to teaching, I have a deep understanding of how a saxophone works and how to teach musical understanding.

About Shane

I'm passionate about music and about sharing my knowledge with others. Everyone can benefit from music and learning an instrument. Specifically, the saxophone is easy to begin learning, and can be very technical at advanced levels. I am still learning new things almost every time I play.

"I have been learning how to play the tenor saxophone with Lonze for seven months. I had never picked up the sax before, so I was truly starting from zero. I have enjoyed working with Lonze because he emphasizes the importance of on fundementals like practicing long tones, scales, tounguing and rythm. I have also been learning from him how to read music. When I am faced with a note I cannot seem to hit, he is able to provide specific guidence and advice on how to work one's embochure and throat in order that, through practice, I can work towards improving. The same aplies to finger positioning, as he has provided me with specific advice on how to position my fingers for best fluidity between notes. He has been very encouraging during this process, which keeps me motivated to continue. I look forward to continued learning under his tutelage."

"Max is a fantastic teacher! He taught my 12-year old son James how to play saxophone from the very beginning. James had never played the sax before and after his first lesson he could already play a song. Max is passionate and inspires and motivates his students, and his lessons are well planned out. Besides being a great teacher, he is also an amazing saxophone player! I now also have my younger daughter learn to play clarinet with Max, and she also loves her lessons."
