|Lorenzo Colombo- Available Tues, Wed & Thurs|
Brief History -
I’m Lorenzo Colombo, originally from Italy. I was born in Milan
where I graduated in saxophone at the International Music Academy. Working
in jazz, rock, fusion, funky and folk bands I developed my skills, touring
Europe and attending many music festivals. During the years at the Academy
I started discovering my passion for writing music, so while I was working
as a musician I attended the Classical Music Academy for composition.
Inspired by one of my teachers in particular (M° Fabio Jegher) I began
my activity as a music teacher in a few schools around Milan.
Teaching Philosophy -
Music is a language and learning how to play music means learning how to use it to express yourself with an instrument. The most important thing in music is knowing what you want to say and understanding how to do it, and the more you have fun the faster you can learn. In everyone of us there’s a little voice telling stories in our own, personal, particular way. If we pay enough attention and we can find the time to listen we can discover how to find our melodies or to write our songs. That’s why lessons will be not just about your instrument, but also about theory, harmony and composition splitting giant steps into little tiny steps that are easy to follow.
My Musical Interests -
artists I really like without any particular order: Michael Brecker, Bob
Mintzer, Tom Scott, Dexter Gordon, Chris Potter, Charles Mingus, Count
Basie, Oliver Nelson, Marcus Miller, Michel Camilo, Antony Jackson, Bill
Frisell, Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane, Pat Metheny, Herbie Hancock,
Styles of Music Taught -
Jazz, funk, classical, rock, pop, folk, reggae, but I’m happy to guide the students into the style they prefer.
