Hello , My name Is Lonze. I can't wait to meet you and start a fun , professional and rewarding private lesson. I have been teaching for 7 years and I enjoy what I do . Every lesson of interacting with my students is a great experience for us both . Many of my students carry the skills I teach them to play with their high school , college and local bands.

I began playing the Saxophone in elementary school going on to play at Cass Technical High School . There after I went on to Knoxville College Of Music studying classical and jazz improvisation. I have played at the Fox Theater in Detroit Michigan with the All State Symphonic Band. First Chair Alto Saxophonist in the Ben Pruitt and friends at Bakers Keyboard Lounge. I've played with several bands throughout the years performing classical , many forms of jazz , and blues music. I currently perform in various venues around the Metro Phoenix area.

I am a very easy going an enthusiastic person that will bring those qualities to every lesson with my students. I have plenty of experience working with Kids working in the music department of the Rosedale Community Center in Detroit Mi.

Regardless of skill level I will teach the basics and progress at the rate that you learn the material. I look forward to helping you reach your goals to become better at any level school band , as a hobby or if u just want to play songs for your friends.

I look forward to hearing for you!!

Although it was a first lesson, nothing felt awkward. Lonze was friendly and knowledgeable. He arrived on time wearing a smile. My son enjoyed the piano lesson. He would like to continue learning as a student of Lonze.
