Maureen has been a wonderful clarinet teacher! Being an adult who is picking up the clarinet again, I like how Maureen provides a balance of theory, exercises, improvision, and various methods to help me in my playing.

Online Saxophone Teacher

I have been training on the saxophone for upwards of twelve years! I have been giving lessons since 2015, and I am qualified to teach beginner to intermediate players. I've earned top chairs in my county, district, and state, and students of mine have gone on to do the same in their own ensembles! I have also played in select honors bands, such as the Great American Marching Band in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. I am a skilled teacher, having served as a middle school teacher's assistant and summer camp music instructor. My prices are competitive because I simply want to share the joy of music with you or your student!

What to expect when you take lessons with me:

-Flexible scheduling
-A judgement-free, creative environment!
-A free PDF of the saxophone fundamentals workbook with which I teach, as a supplement to personalized lesson-planning.

(CANCELLATION POLICY: I will do my best to reschedule lessons with students if I am notified 24 hours in advance. Otherwise, ...

Ashley is the best! She was so encouraging and enthusiastic in our first alto saxophone lesson! With no prior knowledge of woodwinds, I was playing tunes by the end of an hour. She was so friendly and helpful as she taught me how to assemble and care for the instrument, and gently reminded me to correct my posture and keep my fingers on the keys. If you're looking for a sax teacher at any level, I can't recommend Ashley highly enough!
Heather
Samantha B.
Ashley was positive and encouraging in my first lesson. She took the time to review all parts of the instrument, how to hold it, clean it, etc., and answered all my questions. She had me adjust in different ways to make sound to get me to the right starting place. I'm looking forward to lots more learning!

"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!"
