More About Alonzo

Hi, I'm Alonzo Ellison

I have over a decade of teaching experience for the trumpet and as a general brass instructor. I mostly work with trumpet players, although my studio also has trombone, french horn, and tuba players.

I first started playing the trumpet at 12 years old in 6th grade. I was lucky enough to be in the jazz band, which really sparked my interested in mastering the trumpet to sound like the greats. I recognized the jazz standards from my childhood listening around my dad, and knew that I was in the right place.

My love and excitement for music kept me constantly practicing and improving, leading to sitting first chair in the all state jazz band during highschool. The experience of being around so many high level musicians and teachers led to my own interest in teaching.

Now I enjoy sharing my passion for music and teaching trumpet players of all skill levels and ages. My studio’s age range goes from 5 to 74, so it’s never too early or late to start.
